2018 PPFIC CONFERENCE HOST CITY

Appleton, Wisconsin

Appleton, Wisconsin is located in the heart of the paper industry.  The Fox River Valley has boasted of having the highest concentration of papermills in the world for years.  This is a very appropriate location for the 2018 the Pulp, Paper and Forest Products industry conference.

Appleton is located at the north end of Lake Winnebago.  Rivers and waterways surround the city to provide water for paper production and water sports.  If you enjoy boating or fishing, plan vacation time before or after the conference and enjoy Wisconsin water sports and its great outdoors!  June is a fantastic time to Travel Wisconsin.
