The new feature this year will be the 1st Latin American Symposium on Paper for Packaging

SAO PAULO, April 29, 2011 - The largest event for the Latin American pulp and paper industry, the
ABTCP 2011 - 44th Pulp and Paper International Congress and Exhibition will
be held on October 3rd through 5th at the Transamerica Expo Center in Sao
, and is expected to bring together more than 160 exhibitors.

The event, hosted by the Brazilian Technical Association for Pulp and
Paper (ABTCP), is supported by the partnership of the German industry
association ZELLCHEMING (Association of Chemists and Engineers of Chemical
Pulp and Paper), the oldest technical scientific association in this field in
the entire world.

Due to the great success of the 1st Tissue Symposium in 2010, this year
the ABTCP will be organizing the 1st Latin American Packing Paper Symposium,
which will take place in parallel with the 2011 Congress and Exhibition. The
Symposium will address issues such as the production chain for packaging
paper, raw materials, technological innovations, product quality,
sustainability of the industry, development of packaging, normative issues,
final use and reverse logistics.

The Congress, on the other hand, which is focusing on the Competitiveness
of the Brazilian Pulp and Paper Industry, will have seven technical sessions
on the following subjects: automation and process control; pulp; engineering
and maintenance; forestry; environment; paper; recovery and utilities.

"Brazil has already consolidated its position among the leaders of the
pulp market, and the challenge now is to expand production capacity and the
competitiveness of Brazilian paper, which still faces innumerable obstacles,
such as excessive taxation and difficulties with regard to the oversight of
tax exempt paper," notes ABTCP president, Lairton Leonardi.

ABTCP 2011 is the main gathering of leaders, academics, researchers,
consultants, professionals and specialists throughout the chain of production
and services of the pulp and paper industry. Last year the event brought
together 167 exhibitors and attracted 12 thousand visitors.
