Thank You for Attending PEERS 2018
At the Hilton Portland Downtown
As an attendee you joined 373 of your fellow industry professionals for four days of information-packed technical sessions, panels, committee meetings, two special keynote addresses and an exciting trade fair. While the weather outside trended typically Pacific Northwest, chilly and wet, inside the event was generating lots of thought provoking content. If you have not done so already, please take the time to fill out the post-conference survey which you will receive via email on November 7, or you can simply access here. Your opinion is greatly valued and we use your feedback to help make next year’s event even more aligned with the pulping, power/recovery, environmental, and equipment reliability needs of today’s mills.
Below you will find photos from PEERS 2018. Please check back as we will be posting more to TAPPI’s Flickr account soon.
