Partner event: Fastmarkets Forest Products Europe Conference & PPI Awards

Dec 13, 2023

4-6 March, 2024

This is a critical time for the pulp, paper and packaging sector, with multiple threats and new developments on the horizon. You need reliable information to help you make the right business decisions when it matters most.

Now in its 26th year, this event is where global forest products professionals come together for expert insight into the latest industry trends.

It’s where you turn connections into contracts and pick up knowledge that fuels business growth, where you raise your profile and your company’s profile and where you’ll find opportunities to get ahead of your competition.

Here are some of the hot topics on the agenda:

  • Global geopolitical overview – Impact of European and Middle Eastern conflicts, upcoming US elections, China / US relations and more
  • Containerboard overcapacity – Analysing overcapacity and its consequences, including the possibility of mill closures
  • European packaging recycling – What’s behind the slump in recycling rates? How to address fiber degradation in recycling?
  • Energy – Predicting the future of energy prices and examining how realistic alternative energy sources are
  • Sustainability – How will new EU laws affect the industry? And what steps must businesses take to comply with Net Zero policies?

Of course, with Istanbul hosting this year’s conference, it’s also the perfect time to focus on Turkey’s booming paper and packaging industry. So, the conference will look closely at Turkey, including upcoming challenges and opportunities.
