Designed by and for the international tissue industry, this free, world-class virtual conference taking place on 22-23 September 2021 from Tissue World Magazine will run over two days, with the theme of Turning a new page in Tissue: The Route Map for a Reshaped World.

The tissue industry has boomed over the past years, with research revealing that tissue consumption is likely to further increase as we return to normality after the pandemic. But how is the industry preparing itself for this change? What innovations and learnings have come out of the pandemic and how is the industry adjusting its practices across the world? 

These are all questions the industry is set to debate and discuss during the two-day virtual conference, providing eight hours of critical insights and knowledge on the new landscape of the global tissue industry for industry professionals at no cost to attendees.

Tom Hill, Event Manager for Tissue World at Informa Markets commented, “We are passionate about continuing to support professionals in this sector and recognise that, due to a lack of face-to-face events this year, it’s vital the industry still has an opportunity to hear from experts on the very latest in innovation, sustainability and technology. With that in mind, tickets for the Tissue World Magazine Virtual Conference will be free for all attendees.”

With a line-up of industry leaders, major players and expert speakers, the Tissue World Magazine Conference is an exciting platform and unique opportunity to use the experience of the past 18 months as a launchpad for the future.

The conference will be divided into two sections each day, encompassing a Senior Management Symposium Panel Discussions and Technical Panels, all available for every delegate to attend. Each session is designed to spark innovation, impart knowledge and give delegates a killer strategy to enhance their market approach through exploration of the latest technological advances and shared successful case studies.

Speakers currently confirmed for the virtual conference include Esa Kaikkonen, CEO, Metsä Tissue, part of Metsä Group, who will give the opening keynote address. Other figures in the line-up include Hampus Mörner, Senior Consultant at AFRY; Luca Linari, Managing Director, Andritz Novimpianti; Kai Menges, Head of Business Development and Field Marketing, Körber Supply Chain Automation Eisenberg; and Iselie Iglesias, Tissue and Hygiene Consultant, Euromonitor.
