How do I best reach my customers at PEERS?
PEERS includes many opportunities to network such as lunches, coffee breaks, committee meetings, and receptions. In addition, the PEERS/IBBC Trade Fair/Exhibit features suppliers, start-up companies, and media organizations. Hospitality receptions and lunches are held in the trade fair area, as well as a New Technology Showcase where selected exhibitors present a short (8-minute) commercial presentation to attendees.
What sessions can I attend?
Full registrants may attend technical sessions for PEERS, IBBC, and the Research Forum at any time, regardless of the topic area. Single day registrants may attend any sessions the day they are registered for.
Can I attend committee meetings?
Yes. 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.
Do some parts of PEERS require an extra charge?
Yes, some pre-conference workshops, races, and social activities require an additional fee and are noted as such.
