68th Annual Pulp and Paper Industries Conference

The 2023 Conference Committee would like to invite you to the 68th Annual PPIC Technical Conference to be held in Spokane, Washington.  We are looking forward to hosting you at The Historic Davenport Hotel.

In addition to technical papers and other conference events, attendees will have access to visiting beautiful Spokane and area. Spokane is a place where city life mingles brilliantly with nature. Amid the charm and bustle of urban downtown Spokane, you’ll find the Spokane River gorge and the inspiring Spokane Falls. Inspired restaurateurs and winemakers create delicious adventures, the arts district entertains, while boutiques fill out the carefully preserved historic buildings. For more information about Spokane and the surrounding area, visit the website at www.visitspokane.com.


On behalf of our Local Committee, we want to make the 2023 PPIC Conference in Spokane another memorable event. We look forward to making this not only a learning opportunity at the conference, but also offer a destination where you can unwind and enjoy yourself before returning to work.

The 2023 conference website, www.pulpaper.org, information will be updated continually. In the meantime if you have any questions or want to volunteer for the “Local” Committee please do not hesitate to contact us.
