International Pulp Week 2018

Where The Pulp World Meets

6-9 May Vancouver 15th Edition

About International Pulp Week

International Pulp Week (IPW) is an annual three-day conference organized by the Pulp and Products Council (PPPC). IPW brings together the world’s leading producers of market pulp, suppliers, logistic companies, financial institutions, and their customers for a first-class informational and networking opportunity.

The 15th edition will kick off in Vancouver, British Columbia on Sunday, May 6th, 2018. As in previous years, the goal of the event is to serve the market pulp industry by allowing for a multitude of business meetings and networking opportunities that would otherwise require travel to several continents.
