Dear ladies and gentlemen,

We cordially invite you to our traditional meeting in Graz, bringing together approximately 500 experts and stakeholders from the international pulp, paper and biorefinery industries.

As initiators, our goal is to create a platform for future-oriented impulses. Giving a higher priority to the diversity of biorefinery is an essential step forward. Production companies have long been leveraging new potentials beyond the traditional fields of paper production.

If we take a look at developments such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, 3D printing or the Sharing Economy, one thing becomes clear: pioneering innovations have an enormous power and offer companies that put their faith in the new and the right technologies great and significant competitive advantages. Above all, it is the progressive digitalisation that is changing markets and people – fundamentally, permanently and at a great speed.

The next Industrial Revolution has already started and will affect everybody. Irrespective of how established and successful a company is: only if it remains active and capable of learning, acts in a foresighted manner and has an understanding of customer requirements it will remain successful in the long term.

We are devoting a special focus to this topic here at our conference. You can expect renowned speakers, diverse perspectives and valuable insights on both days. An interesting trade show and traditional social events round off our conference perfectly. We look forward to welcoming you to Graz for inspiring and trendsetting discussions!

                         Wolfgang Bauer                          Max Oberhumer                  Christian Skilich
                      Chairman of APV Graz                     President of Austropapier                    President of ÖZEPA
