It’s TW’s 25th anniversary in 2018 and TW Miami looks set to raise the bar again.

As the top tissue companies innovate to stay ahead of the game… so too Tissue World.

Already the industry’s leading provider of global exhibitions, conferences and magazine and online news and analysis, we have responded to changing market  dynamics and substantially revamped our Miami conference and trade show.

The theme will set the tone – “When Best  in Class isn’t good enough: Identifying hidden dynamics to optimise business performance.”

The aim is simple – to provide the leading and aspiring executives with the most up-to-date information that will help guide and navigate the ever-changing business landscape… and to make that crucial deal.

As TWM went to print, we can confirm the event will host 40+ speakers and 300+ attendees, whilst conference content will reflect on our 15 years’ experience in North America to bring a complete package of business insider information.

It will all happen alongside our impressive 200-company strong exhibition in Miami Beach Convention Center between 20 – 23 March 2018 (the trade show will take place during 21 – 23 March).

Tissue World is approaching its 25th anniversary in 2018… so in Miami we have every reason to put on a great show.

Key topics will include:

• Understanding interdependencies; we compare expertise from our mature industry with fast moving trends influencing the wider economy;

• A ‘Business and Management Day’ will take delegates through multiple levels of learning – navigating our way through from broad global trade and consumer trends through the sourcing and production chain to retail;

• A combination of thought-provoking presentations and deep-dive interactive sessions will give new perspectives and the  opportunity to dig into the most challenging issues and most exciting opportunities;

• During the ‘Technical Sessions’ new ideas on product quality, operational efficiency and Industry 4.0 will be gained;

• Solutions emerged from continuous improvements will form the ‘Yankee Operations Workshop;

• As the leading event series in the tissue industry for 25 years, Tissue World provides a hub for this knowledge generation and transfer;

• Topics will cover key subjects affecting businesses from the macro  level to the technical level;

• Deep dive sessions with Q&A’s to go deeper into the topics.
