TAPPI Antitrust & Commercialism Guidelines
Unlike many other conferences, presenters at TAPPI/RISI Tissue must have their presentation reviewed to ensure talks are in line with TAPPI’s antitrust and commercialism policies. Attendees at industry events in the US are becoming increasingly sensitive to antitrust compliance at face to face meetings. These policies protect the author, the industry, and TAPPI. Therefore, we remind all authors to follow these guidelines in your presentation slides.
Please remember you must register for the conference by September 4th, 2018. Significantly reduced rates are available to speakers. Also, you should consider booking a hotel room as early as possible; TAPPI's discounted rooms will go fast.
