  Chicago was definitely the place where the paper industry meets
  this week, as more than 700 registered participants took part in the
  events of Paper2013.  The lobby and hallways of the Fairmont
  Millennium Park Chicago hotel bustled with activity from the time
  people came to check-in at registration, where they were greeted
  with information on the programs and actions being conducted by the co-hosts:  American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) and the NPTA Alliance.

This year’s event is getting great buzz about the speakers and ability to meet with their industry peers.  The sessions were widely attended, providing a breadth of information from various perspectives.  Supportive CEOs took questions from industry reps and explained why the Paper Check-off would benefit the industry..  Monday afternoon, a panel of CEOs addressed issues and opportunities on the horizon, and provided positive examples of innovation and transformation that is taking place in the paper industry.   

The traditional luncheon session drew a packed-house to hear about domestic and global opportunities from the keynote speaker – Dr. Jeffrey Rosensweig.  Attendees heard powerful and interesting messages on the power of paper from AF&PA and NPTA leaders, and the Stanley O. Styles award was proudly presented to David McGehee, president of Mac Papers.

Paper2013 did everything possible to build on its proud tradition  of offering registered attendees great value.  We came away rejuvenated about the integral role paper plays in society.  Join us next year in New York City!
