Why aren't the exhibit hours all day during the event?

Many people come to TAPPICon to visit the exhibit floor along with attending the technical sessions. We are mindful of making sure the exhibit hours are focused on quality instead of quantity, so we have limited the amount of overlap of the technical program and the exhibit hall. This keeps attendees and exhibitors alike from having to choose between which to visit. Also, to make sure all attendees had ample opportunities to reach their customers and colleagues, we extended the exhibit hours. Now you can visit booths and make new business connections all three days - Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 


How do I best reach my customers at TAPPICon?

TAPPICon includes many opportunities to network such as lunches, coffee breaks, committee meetings, and receptions. In addition, the TAPPICon Trade Fair/Exhibit features the industry’s leading global suppliers, new start-up companies, universities, associations, and media organizations. Hospitality receptions and lunches are held in the exhibit area, as well as a New Technology Showcase where you can hear short, 8-minute presentations about the latest technologies available in the industry.


How are speakers selected?

The TAPPICon program is assembled by several Technical Program Committees comprised of TAPPI members from around the world. They are industry professionals in each subject area and employ a rigorous selection and peer review process to ensure that the presentations are of the highest quality, non-commercial, and of utmost relevance and value to the industry.

All presentations and proceedings are reviewed and must comply with TAPPI’s Antitrust Policy and most presentations and proceedings (excluding the New Technology Showcase) must comply with TAPPI's Commercialism Guidelines


What sessions can I attend?

The TAPPICon program is open; full registrants may attend any session at any time, regardless of the topic area.

Single day registrants may attend any sessions the day they are registered for. 


Must I register for the conference to attend committee meetings?

No, but you still need to register for 'committee meetings only.' Committee meetings are open -- anyone may attend unless indicated “by invitation only.” TAPPI Committee meetings are an excellent way to meet colleagues and network in your area of expertise while contributing to the growth of the industry. By allowing participants to pass on the knowledge they've gained, we feel committee meetings are one of the best ways to give back. 


How do I obtain a Visa?

You must register for the conference before being eligible for a Visa letter. For more details about obtaining a Visa to attend TAPPICon 2022, please review the TAPPI guidelines. 


Do some parts of TAPPICon require an extra charge?

Yes, some pre-conference workshops, courses and social activities require an additional fee and are noted as such.
