[Adv.] 17th International Conference--Beijing, China
I wanted to take a couple of minutes to mention our partnership this year with the The 17th International Exhibition and Conference for the Pulp/Paper and Forestry Industries to be held in Beijing in September. Please note that the dates have changed to 16-18 Sept 09. If you do business in China, you won't want to miss this conference. Alternating between Beijing and Shanghai, I had the opportunity to attend several years ago and found it quite impressive.
