Event organiser Informa Connect has hailed the impressive success of Tissue World Miami 2024 after recording visitor growth up 61% compared with 2022’s exhibition.

North America’s largest tissue exhibition and conference saw over 1,862 visitors from 86 countries attending, taking time to talk to customers, peers, meeting old friends and making new.

The floorplan saw growth of 30% with 135 exhibitors showcasing the very latest technologies – from paper machinery through to converting, packaging, chemicals, and AI – generating 2,629 leads during the three-day event.

Hundreds of delegates also attended the conference – themed All to Play for in a VUCA World: Strategies for Winning with Tissue – which offered insights via deep-dive talks and Q&A sessions from 50+ speakers, including keynote speaker Jean-David Tardif, President and Chief Executive of Cascades.

Fabio Perini, Italian entrepreneur and tissue technology visionary, also heralded a first for Tissue World by delivering a pre-recorded keynote address and Q&A session that was presented live at the Miami conference.

A new addition to the conference was the Tissue Workshop, where participants collaboratively designed a sustainable blueprint for the future of the industry.

Visitors to the exhibition also attended Tech Talks, featuring 15-minute sessions on the latest trends and technologies in tissue manufacturing.

Topics include maintenance practices, converting design considerations, creping technology, and more.

And on Day Zero, to welcome the start of the exhibition in true Tissue World Miami style, the networking drinks reception – held at the Clevelander Hotel’s iconic rooftop bar – was the busiest seen in years.

For those who couldn’t attend, a summary of Miami’s 2024 conference will be available in the March/April digital Tissue World Magazine, available in April.
