As an industry association comprised of managers, engineers, consultants, scientists and academics, we have access to a wealth of information about emerging technology and innovation in our industry. Each year, we share that knowledge with you through our conferences, forums, symposia, workshops and courses.
The Appita Fibre Value Chain Conference is the highlight of the pulp and paper industry calendar. Alternating between Rotorua and Melbourne, the event attracts hundreds of delegates from throughout the world.
A comprehensive program of technical papers, operations ‘TechTalks’, management and commercial forums and seminars, short courses and other Special Interest Group activities to ensure your professional development needs are met. The conference also includes social program and networking functions for delegates and partners.
In recent years we have added to the appeal of the conference by integrating major international events with ours. These have included the Pan Pacific Conference, Occupational Health & Safety Conference, International Symposium of Wood Fibre and Pulping Chemistry, the Bioenergy Association of New Zealand (BANZ) and the Advanced Biofuels Research Network (ABRN) Symposium.
