Following a shift in strategy as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council (PSTC) recently released details on its plans for members-only and full industry events to be held this year and in 2022. Comprising both virtual and in-person networking and educational opportunities, the organization reports that it looks forward to delivering on its value to members and the pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape industry.

PSTC's inaugural Tape Week event is slated to be held in person the week of May 3, 2022, at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Based on the organization's historic Tape Summit, the new educational and networking event will feature a focus on the building/construction and automotive industries, as well as emerging markets. Tape Week 2023 will be held at the same location.

PSTC's 2021 Fall Member Business Meeting will take place in person November 9-11, 2021, at the Hyatt Coconut Pointe Resort in Bonita Springs, Fla. This is one of two members-only business meetings the organization holds throughout the year.

"This year and beyond, we will be focusing on a number of key strategy areas to continue delivering on the value of being part of PSTC, including: providing regulatory and technical insights, offering new educational and training opportunities, holding virtual and in-person meetings and networking events, identifying current member needs, and realigning to grow our industry," said Joe Tocci, president of PSTC.

PSTC also launched its new Webinar Series earlier this year to encourage members to stay connected, network with colleagues, and continue utilizing their membership investment. Complete with free webinars featuring presentations on a variety of important industry-related topics, the initiative has reportedly garnered much attention and attendance from members; more installments are planned throughout the year.

"While the turbulence of 2020 presented us with unexpected challenges, PSTC evolved to meet them head on, charting a path forward for the future of our industry, the direction of our organization and the recovery of our members," said Tocci.
