International Pulp Week 2020

Where The Pulp World Meets

14-16 June Vancouver 17th 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 17th edition will take place at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver from June 14 -16, 2020. 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.
