NORCROSS, GA, USA—TAPPI is pleased to announce the 2001 Engineering and Finishing and Converting Conference and Trade Fair has been rescheduled. The new dates are December 2 through 6, 2001, at the Marriott Rivercenter, San Antonio, TX, USA. The organization made the decision to reschedule the original conference dates (September 16 through the 20) due to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
"Our goal has always been to provide a high-quality conference that will highlight the important interrelationship between the engineering and finishing and converting disciplines," says the assn. "We feel these new dates will allow us to meet your—and our—high expectations. Some sessions might change, but we expect to have the complete technical program, with session times, available at tappi.org."
