London Pulpweek Symposium 2020


The Programme

The 2020 Hawkins Wright & BWPA London Pulpweek Symposium goes online!

Although it proved impossible to bring all of you together for our traditional event on the shores of the Thames in London, we are working hard with our speakers and sponsors to ensure that you enjoy the same quality of presentations. 
Confirmed speakers thus far include:

  • Walter Schalka - President, Suzano
  • David Rennie - Beijing bureau chief, The Economist
  • Wolfgang Beck - Managing director, Mercer
  • Peter Holmgren - Founder & Senior Advisor, FutureVistas
  • Daniel Nordigarden - Associate partner, McKinsey & Co

... plus a few more to be confirmed, as well as the traditional Outlook for Market Pulp presentation delivered by Hawkins Wright.

The webinar will be held over two 2-hour sessions on both Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th of November, with a starting time set at 11.55am UK time.

We are excited to try out this new format which should allow for even greater numbers than usual.
Individual ticket prices have been revised to £215 (+VAT where applicable), and sponsorship packages allow for an unlimited number of delegates from within the sponsoring company to join!

Please note that we will be using Zoom as a platform for the event. If that is a problem for you, please get in touch with us.

Charity fundraising

The PaperSeed Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening educational opportunities for children and young people in underserved and resource-lacking communities around the world. PaperSeed seeks to create lasting impact, well after the organization has ceased to be directly involved, by granting seed money to community-based organizations with leaders who have demonstrated an ability to run sustainable, long-lasting initiatives. We are grateful to CellMark, who underwrites all operating and administrative expenses for the foundation, thus allowing 100 percent of donations to directly benefit innovative leaders, entrepreneurs, and projects that strengthen and/or remove barriers to education.
