PEERS 2015

October 25-28, 2015

Hyatt Regency Atlanta

PEERS is an acronym for Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling, Sustainability. PEERS represents the most dynamic, forward-leaning topics in the forest products arena today. PEERS offers an expert-led program that has been proven to provide real-world results in each of these critical areas of the mill. Planned and led by working professions, every session has been designed to address real challenges attendees face on the job. But PEERS is more than an acronym—it represents a peer-focused approach that you won’t find anywhere else. Throughout the program, leading-edge technical knowledge is presented alongside opportunities for face-to-face access with industry experts, peers and colleagues. Attendees are active participants and contributors to Q&A sessions, “Ask the Experts” discussions, Roundtable forums, “What’s New” exhibits, topic-specific panels, and informal networking opportunities. And, like all TAPPI events, the PEERS conference provides all of this in a relaxed, professional environment.
