2017 Fibre Value Chain Conference & Expo


On behalf of the Appita Executive Committee, I would like to thank you for your support and participation in the 2017 Appita Fibre Value Chain Conference & Expo Conference held at the Melbourne Events & Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia.

More than 290 delegates, sponsors and exhibitors attended the Conference and Exhibition from Australia and abroad.

We extend our sincere thanks to all our conference partners, sponsors, supporting associations and exhibitors for their invaluable contribution and support. Without your generous and continued support, our conference would not be able to achieve the positive recognition that we experience each year.  

A big thank you to our keynote speakers and presenters for finding time in their busy schedules to join us and share their expertise and thought provoking perspectives with colleagues and conference delegates. The high quality of the presentations is to be commended, it is clearly a reflection of the skills and expertise that exist across within the pulp and paper sector and across the fibre value chain.

Thank you also to the Appita Technical Committee, conference session chairs and competition judges for assisting in the lead up to the conference and during the conference.

Thank you to the Appita Secretariat for their hard work, commitment and dedication to making this event the success that it was.

I trust the program of events has provided a level of inspiration and motivation that encourages you to consider introducing new ideas and thinking in your organisation. 

I hope that you enjoyed the conference. 

Thank you again for your support and participation and I look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Fibre Value Chain Conference in Rotorua New Zealand, 4-6 December 2018.
