PRIMA conference

4 September 2023
Vienna, Austria

PRIMA is the platform for discussion, knowledge and inspiration for the pulp and paper supply chains as part of Smithers Paper Week 2023

Over the last 50 years, PRIMA has established a reputation as the go-to network hub for the entire fibre value chain – from forestry, minerals and chemicals companies through to pulp and paper makers, merchants, publishers, printers, packaging producers and consumers of paper and board products.

Taking place in 2023 as a strategically focused one-day event, followed by a networking dinner, this year's event will provide you with the opportunity to get the latest developments in the fibre network, in-depth background information and a clear understanding of future challenges and solutions from top leaders in the industry, whilst taking minimal time out of your diary.

Two options to attend in 2023:

  • Purchase a 1 day PRIMA ticket and just attend PRIMA on Monday 4 September 2023
  • Purchase a 3-day Smithers Paper Week ticket and attend PRIMA on 4 September, and then the co-located Specialty Papers & E-PACK Europe on 5-6 September 2023




Alongside an award-winning programme, PRIMA provides the perfect environment for you to connect with senior decision makers and key players from across the industry and build on those all-important business relationships. 

  • Discover solutions to the biggest challenges facing the pulp, paper and print sectors through a series of dynamic sessions led by high-calibre industry leaders.
  • Network with fellow C-level industry professionals. Previous attendees include senior experts from Mondi, Holmen, CEPI, Sappi, Voith, Danone, Suez, Stora Enso, European Paper Alliance and more.
  • Have your questions answered during dedicated Q&A sessions throughout the event.
