Antitrust & Commercialism Guidelines

Unlike many other conferences, presenters at TAPPI Nano must have their presentation reviewed to ensure talks are in line with TAPPI’s antitrust and commercialism policies. Attendees at industry events in the US are becoming increasingly sensitive to antitrust compliance at face to face meetings.  These policies protect the author, the industry, and TAPPI.  Therefore, we remind all authors to follow these simplified guidelines in your presentation slides.

Antitrust Guidelines:

Commercialism Guidelines:
Although commerce is a driving force for our technologies, TAPPI technical sessions are not a platform for commercial (sales) presentations. Presentations that are technical and objective enhance the credibility of the presenter and his or her organization. Restricting commercialism ultimately benefits both the presenters and the TAPPI audience.  Excessive use of brand names, product names or logos, failure to substantiate performance claims, and failure to objectively discuss alternative methods, processes or equipment are indicators of sales presentations. Presenters with universities may include their logo on each slide template. 


Conference Registration

Please remember you must register for the conference by 2-May 2017.   Significantly reduced rates are available to speakers.  Also, you should consider booking a hotel room as early as possible; TAPPI's discounted rooms will go fast.
