BPIF/NAPM Paper Forum 2012
Guoman Tower Hotel, London

UNFOLDING THE FUTURE – THE CHANGING MARKET FOR PRINT AND PAPER
You are probably all too familiar with the impact of higher paper prices on profit margins. But did you know that strategic shifts in the global forest fibre sector are about to make this issue far more acute?
With world population set to grow by 30% by 2030, papermakers will increasingly be switching their focus to renewable sources, in terms of both energy production and alternative wood products. Inevitably, price pressures will continue to be a major concern for anyone who buys paper or print media.
The joint BPIF-NAPM conference will bring print customers, print manufacturers and paper suppliers together for the first time to examine the longer term outlook for the cost of print’s principal raw material and what this will mean for your business.
Understand the impact of escalating raw material costs on existing business models in both paper merchanting and print manufacturing; learn how these will need to adapt to cope; and discover how printers and merchants can work together to offset these pressures by cutting supply chain costs, streamlining procurement and enhancing the efficiency of distribution processes.
The conference will be held at the 4-star Guoman Tower Hotel, located right on the River Thames in the heart of London. With panoramic views over Tower Bridge, The Thames and St Katharine Docks, this superb venue offers luxury accommodation and state-of-the-art events facilities. An optional dinner will be held at the Hotel on the evening before the conference for delegates who wish to say overnight.
To reserve your place phone Tim Bowler on + 44 (0) 115 841 2129 or email email@example.com
All delegates will receive a copy of a new joint BPIF-NAPM guide to paper purchasing best practice (to be launched at the Conference) and the Confederation of European Paper Industries’ long-term strategy Unfold the Future - The Forest Fibre Industry 2050 Roadmap to a low-carbon bio-economy.
