Co-hosted by the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) and the National Paper Trade Association (NPTA), Paper2017 will provide executives from across the industry with timely sessions on emerging issues and unparalleled networking opportunities to enhance business partnerships and make new connections.
Since 2010, AF&PA and NPTA have co-hosted the event to provide THE annual networking event for the paper industry. Each year has brought new and provocative offerings. Over the years, AF&PA has announced their sustainability goals (Better Practices, Better Planet 2020) here; NPTA’s Stanley O. Styles Award has become featured at the event; insight has been gained from Millenials, trade experts and thought leaders from within and outside our industry; and innovative ways to enhance the networking experience has continued to evolve.
