TAPPI is also hoping to take advantage of the symposium being held in the "Heart of Furniture Land," and would like to encourage presentations dealing with wood bonding, fabric/upholstery bonding and carpet bonding.
Some of the other changes TAPPI has made include:
- The symposium will run from Sunday afternoon until Tuesday afternoon. This will allow participants to attend the entire conference and only have two nights' hotel expense.
- The Tuesday afternoon free time (golf/tennis etc.) has been eliminated. The time will be used to hold two sessions.
- The lavish Awards Dinner has been eliminated. The awards will be given out during the welcome portion of the Monday morning session.
- TAPPI has added a new venue for Monday afternoon called the "New Technology Showcase." Presenters will be allowed 10 minutes to showcase a new technology or product.
