Tissue World Magazine

Tissue World has kept its vow to circulate in Europe and in 2017 will move to Italy, Milan!

It follows two events in a fantastic city that graced the tissue industry with its beauty, its impeccable services, and greatly enhanced the industry’s reach in the Iberian Peninsula and far beyond.

Tissue World has conducted a survey on where to move after Barcelona and the results indicate Milan as the winner.

Many reasons back the candidature of this city: its proximity to one of the most important markets and industry in the world, its pivotal position within Europe, the easiness to fly to the city, the overall cost of exhibiting and visiting that fares below many other candidate cities, the state of the art venue (MICO) close to downtown Milan, and the vast array of entertainment options available in the city and in the country.

But before we move to Milan, we are all excited to meet in Barcelona for the next edition of Tissue World!

The show and the conference are looking great, visitor registrations are of a very high quality, and we look forward to doing great business together!

Speakers at the conference so far include: Oxford University’s Andrea Boltho, Stratfor’s Adriano Bosoni, Hawkins Wright’s Oliver Lansdell, Kantar Retail’s Himanshu Pal, SCA Hygiene Products’ Olli Härkönen, Gomà-Camps’ Jordi Gomà-Camps Travé, and Northwood Tissue (Disley) UK’s Rob Mcleod … plus many more!

At the same time, Tissue World wanted to thank you and the city for the support by organising a splendid farewell at La Pedrera, a gala dinner in one of the symbols of this memorable city.

Tissue World: getting ready to kick-off in Brazil

The team and tissue industry is also preparing for Tissue World in São Paulo, one of the fastest-growing tissue markets in the world!

South America and Brazil in particular can count on an extremely competitive paper and pulp industry which could threaten the pulp mills in the Northern Hemisphere.

In fact, large, new mills will continue to be built in in the region due to their attractive position on the world cost curve, and to better serve their primary export markets in Europe, China and USA.

Concurrently, Latin America is projected to absorb 16% of the global tissue market growth of the next ten years, second only to China.

Incidentally, a month ago, alongside a host of co-operation agreements in the region China pledged to increase trade with Latin America to $500bn and to invest upwards of $250bn over the next decade, thus spurring frictions with the USA in a race to secure the greatest influence in Latin America.

During 20 – 22 May 2015 at the Transamerica Expo Center in São Paulo these burning topics and more will be debated at the launching event of Tissue World in South America, the only event exclusively dedicated to the tissue industry in the region.

Come join the discourse!
