The NAPM Annual Forum and Dinner both took place on 18 April at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London. This was the first occasion on which both events had taken place on the same day. 

90 staff from paper merchants and paper manufacturers from across Europe attended the Forum and enjoyed a lively debate. The Forum theme was ‘What’s Around the Corner? – The Next Five Years. ‘ Guest speakers included: 

  • Dave Allen – CEO, PaperlinX
  • Eduard De Voogd – Secretary General, Eugropa
  • Neil Falconer – Managing Director, Printfuture.
  • Emanuele Bona – Vice President, Europe,The Pulp and Paper Products Council 
  • Jim Todd – Sales Director, Heidelberg UK
  • Martyn Eustace – Director, Two Sides UK and Print Power 
  • Tim Bowler – Director, NAPM

Many issues were discussed but the dialogue was dominated by the well-documented recent decline in paper consumption and its effects on the graphics sector. Discussion also concentrated on the actions and initiatives that companies within the industry are taking to deal with those effects.
