Organisers have announced that the PulPaper event will be rescheduled to the spring of 2022. The decision is due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic situation and travel restrictions. This spring, however, a new online Virtual pre-PulPaper event is organised on Thursday 29 April 2021.
PulPaper is the leading event within the forest industry. Exhibitors from 28 different countries and visitors from 50 countries participated last time. The success of the international event requires the opportunity for participants to travel freely. Although news of Covid-19 vaccinations is promising, the pandemic continues to have major impact on the ability of companies and visitors to prepare for the upcoming event.
For this reason, Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre has, in cooperation with the event organising partners, decided to postpone the event by a year. PulPaper will open next at Messukeskus in Helsinki on March 29-30, 2022. The professional event in the chemical and bio sector ChemBio Finland and the chemical safety expert forum Helsinki Chemicals Forum will also take place at the same time.
Although the physical event has been pushed to next year, Messukeskus and its partners will provide a virtual meeting place for companies and professionals in the field this spring. Virtual pre-PulPaper – towards 2022 will be organised online on Thursday April 29, 2021. The virtual pre-event is free of charge for visitors and scheduling takes into account participants following the programme globally in different time zones.
“The online event enables companies to meet with potential clients and visitors can follow interesting programmes. We present next year’s fair themes by offering chosen treats from the programme beforehand”, said Messukeskus sales group manager, Marcus Bergström.
Forest Products Engineers managing director Antti Lindqvist commennted: “Virtual pre-PulPaper forms an interesting link to next year and opens up new opportunities for companies and especially international participants. We will gather valuable experience this spring, as virtuality and even wider internationality will become an increasingly strong part of the PulPaper event in the future.”
