SPCI Convention 2015 - Save the date!

SPCI Convention will take place on Nov 18-19 at Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre. More information will be posted shorly.

SPCI Convention is a two-day conference for the forest, pulp and paper industry with parallell conference tracks and a small exhibition - all on the same area.



The essence of the concept is simple but important –making it easier for people to meet


SPCI Convention is a time and cost efficient meeting platform combined with quality assured conference content, giving the best possible conditions to make the event experience fruitful for all participants. SPCI Convention is a tailor made event format brought together by the association SPCI to meet the requests from the industry – adjusted to fit the needs and budgets of individual participants, both conference delegates and those also involved in the exhibition.


The Event

•SPCI Convention is a full event solution package – there are no visitors or exhibitors – just participants in the event.

•We believe in active, networking, knowledge-seeking participants who design their own day choosing bits from a packed event program.

•The broad variety of presentations and tracks works as a smorgasbord offering something for everyone – whether you are interested in market/economy questions or looking for the latest news in the R&D field.

•The event area is adjusted to fit people in motion and contains an open stage, conference and exhibition area as well as several smaller conference rooms.

•The idea is to create a meeting-friendly space that allows people to move freely between the different areas during conference hours.




The Program - Parallell tracks on various topics

The broad variety of presentations and tracks works as a smorgasbord offering something for everyone – whether you are interested in market/economy questions or looking for the latest news in the R&D field.
