Dear ipw reader,

tomorrow is the PTS Coating Symposium in Munich, a leading event for manufacturers of coated paper and board, their suppliers and customers. We look forward to the modern ambience of the new conference location at the Hotel Leonardo Royal.

After an introduction to current market challenges, Berry Wiersum (Sappi), Peter Berg (McKinsey) and other speakers will present their ideas on new technologies and strategies for the future. We anticipate an interesting and colorful mixture of scientific results and industrial success stories about coated paper and board, such as: new concepts in graphic paper production, innovative packaging concepts with coated paper and board, new and improved products with functionalized surfaces, and trend-setting process developments in the fields of coating color application, measurement and sensor technology.

We hope to see you there and will certainly report on the event in our next issue!
