PRIMA CONFERENCE | NEW ONLINE FORMAT | 22-23 SEPTEMBER 2020: Europe’s premier event for pulp, paper and packaging professionals

Given the ongoing disruption to corporate travel resulting from COVID-19, Smithers’ renowned PRIMA conference has moved to a new online format for 2020.

The conference will take place on 22-23 September across two morning sessions (from 08:30 BST or 09:30 CEST), allowing delegates to be updated about the latest pulp, paper, tissue and packaging trends, market developments and opportunities for growth & innovation from their home or office via a live event stream.

Recognised for over 50 years as the go-to network hub for the entire fibre value chain, PRIMA has proven to be an unmissable event, and with COVID-19 continuing to have disruptive effects on the industry, there’s never been a more important time to stay ahead of the curve.

C-level experts from Mondelez International, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Sappi, Kimberly-Clark, Stora Enso, Holmen, IKEA, European Commission and more will present on topics such as:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on the pulp, paper, tissue and packaging sectors
  • New opportunities for sustainability and collaboration across the value chain
  • Circularity in the paper and packaging industries
  • Challenges, opportunities and trends in today’s graphic paper market
  • The role of fibre based packaging in the circular economy and climate neutrality
