Smithers' PRIMA conference

Europe's Premier Conference for the pulp, paper and packaging supply chains

Over the last 50 years, PRIMA has established a reputation as the go-to network hub for the entire fibre value chain – from forestry, minerals and chemicals companies through to pulp and paper makers, merchants, publishers, printers, packaging producers and consumers of paper and board products.

Alongside an award-winning programme, PRIMA provides the perfect environment for you to connect with senior decision makers and key players from across the industry and build on those all-important business relationships.
