Boston, 11 February (Press Release) – RISI, the leading information provider for the global forest products industry, today announced a new event partnership with the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI). The agreement will enhance the programme for both RISI’s 2015 European Conference and CEPI’s European Paper Week. It also provides discounts for CEPI members to enable them to attend both events.
“RISI and CEPI share a long history of serving the needs of the European paper industry.
