Tips for Creating your Presentation Slides

FAQ for Presenters

Antitrust Guidelines

Attendees at industry events in the US are becoming increasingly sensitive to antitrust compliance at face to face meetings. Therefore, we remind all authors to follow these simplified guidelines in your paper or presentation slides. The full TAPPI antitrust guidelines may be found by clicking here.


Commercialism Guidelines

Presentations: Company, University, Government Agencies and Research Facilities, can place a small logo can appear on each slide.  Logo MUST be small.  See example in the template.

Conference Registration

Please remember you must also register for the conference.   Significantly reduced rates are available to speakers.  Speakers must register by 13 April 2018 to confirm inclusion in the technical program.  If speakers are not registered by this date, their presentation risks being pulled from the program. 

You should also remember to book your hotel as early as possible; TAPPI's discounted rooms will go fast. The cut-off for discounted hotel rates ends 10 May 2018.
