International Pulp Week 2019

Where The Pulp World Meets

5-7 May Vancouver 16th Edition

About International Pulp Week

International Pulp Week (IPW) is an annual three-day conference organized by the Pulp and Paper 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 16th edition will kick off in Vancouver, British Columbia on Sunday, May 5th, 2019. 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.
