PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. — Naylor, LLC, North America’s leading communications and events partner for associations, is pleased to announce TAPPI’s PaperCon, the premier event in the North American pulp and paper industry, as the recipient of its Event of the Year Award.

TAPPI contracted with Naylor, LLC in 2009 to handle exhibit sales and marketing for both the PaperCon and PEERS (Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability) events. Thanks to a team effort between TAPPI and Naylor, PaperCon exhibit space and attendance has doubled over the past five years.  PaperCon is now the leading conference and trade show in the industry, bringing together nearly 2,000 CEOs, mill managers, superintendents, scientists and process engineers every year.

“We’re honored that PaperCon has been named winner of this prestigious award,” said Larry N. Montague, TAPPI president and CEO. “PaperCon is an integral part of TAPPI’s mission to provide a face-to-face forum for its members, combined with outstanding technical education. This award recognizes the return on investment it provides our members, as well as its professional appearance and presentation. It’s obvious that PaperCon’s success stems from teamwork between our TAPPI team, our event partner Naylor, and also the continued support of our industry.”
