Three Deep Dive Sessions on Trending Tissue Industry Topics will be examined during the Tissue World Miami 2018 Conference

Deep Dive 1: Global Trade Shifts – Sourcing and Supply Chain Impacts
At a time of geopolitical tension, trade relationships are in the spotlight – what are the most relevant areas for North American tissue markets? Several ideas will be explored during this deep dive session.

Deep Dive 2:  Big Data, Big Impacts?
What is the potential impact of Big Data in the tissue industry? What can be learned from other sectors? With Tissue mills already embracing the latest manufacturing technology and high degrees of automation, is leveraging Big Data the next step in finding the additional efficiencies and performance improvements manufacturers crave?

The Tissue World Miami Conference will explore the many applications of this emerging technology, from global challenges of water shortage in the Business and Management Day to precision predictive analytics in the Technical Sessions on Industry 4.0.

Deep Dive 3:  They Want It All and They Want It Now – Customers in Focus
From fundamentals of GDP and slow population growth, down to the individual buyer decision making process in store and online, understanding today’s customer involves many interconnected variables. Research shows the shift to e-commerce has started for Tissue but what does that mean for brands and buyer choices? Hear from Nielsen what motivates consumer choices and how the brand landscape differs online vs. in-store. Learn from The Kroger Co. how retailers can engage with their costumers and consider examples of when best in class wasn’t good enough.

Industry peers will present best practices, address challenges and provide solutions to tissue paper production through on-point and tangible presentations. Participants will gain competitive advantages and leave each technical session with a deeper understanding and new, actionable ideas about product quality, operational efficiency, energy savings, fibres, Industry 4.0, converting, chemicals, sustainability and regulatory updates.
