The PulPaper event will be rescheduled to the spring of 2022. The decision is due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic situation and travel restrictions. This spring, however, a new online Virtual pre-PulPaper event is organized on Thursday 29 April 2021.
PulPaper is one of the leading events within the forest industry. Exhibitors from 28 different countries and visitors from 50 countries participated last time. The success of the international event requires the opportunity for participants to travel freely. Although news on Covid-19 vaccinations are promising, the pandemic continues to have a major impact on the ability of companies and visitors to prepare for the upcoming event.
For this reason, Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre has in cooperation with the event organising partners decided to reschedule the event by a year forward. PulPaper will open next time at Messukeskus in Helsinki 29-30 March 2022. The professional event in the chemical and bio sector, ChemBio Finland, and the chemical safety expert forum, Helsinki Chemicals Forum, will also take place at the same time.

Virtual pre-PulPaper – towards 2022 will be organized online Thursday 29 April 2021. The virtual pre-event is free of charge for visitors and scheduling takes into account participants following the programme globally in different time zones.
