In 2022 we celebrated the 20th Tissue Making Conference, exclusively for tissue makers, by taking the event on tour visiting three continents - Europe, North- and South America.
We live in a challenging and unpredictable world where the business environment is changing rapidly. There's a strong need to find ways to operate in a landscape of escalating costs, strengthened legal demands and increasing consumer requirements. Decarbonization is currently on top of everyone's mind and will be for a long time. But this is not a one man show, or a one company show - to make a difference we need to work together.
During the event we talked about global trends and how they will impact the tissue industry. Our presenters talked about solutions that are available already today but also what can be seen in the horizon.
• October 4 - Sao Paulo, Brazil
• October 11 - Lucca area, Italy
• October 26-27 - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA
