With grateful satisfaction I announce to you that 2017 will be a special year. From next January on, all our commitment and dedication will be towards a significant milestone in the pulp and paper industry: the 50th anniversary of ABTCP.
To celebrate the date and wish long life to the association, whose technical and scientific bias is our reason to exist before this industry of large global representativeness, we introduce to you the commemorative stamp specially created to mark all communication encompassing the theme. The image golden tone represents the relevance the golden jubilee, as well as the map of Brazil reinforces the national presence and the nationalist character of the association, which in this half-century of life has always sought to strengthen its alliance with companies in the sector in the technological development of a highly competitive industry.
For these and many other peculiar reasons – which will distinguish the association activities along 2017 – the companies that contributed to the construction and consolidation of our history cannot be left out of our commemorative activities. We prepared several ways to allow you, ABTCP partners, to mark presence and actively participate in this unprecedented agenda by strengthening your own brands, reinforcing the institutional affiliation and expanding the network. Main opportunities are demonstrated in these media kit pages, so you can choose the best visibility options.
The most emblematic moment of the celebration, however, will be in October, when the 50 th Pulp and Paper International Congress will happen, in new format and space. In addition to an opening ceremony equal to the Association birthday, the event will count on the participation of important Iberia-American similar entities. The long awaited fraternization dinner, traditionally occurring during the days of the event, promises to surprise guests, in a carefully chosen location, to accommodate the grandeur of the date in the year of our fiftieth anniversary.
Not only ABTCP 2017 will be differentiated, but the traditional specialized content of “O Papel” magazine, for example, will gain special editions, dedicated to telling the story of people and companies who helped build our history and make ABTCP a sustainable association and up to the competitiveness of the pulp and paper industry. Other projects planned between commemorative activities will be presented next year, valuing the technological development achieved by our industry in recent times.
