There's a Trade Show for that???

Posted by High Road Inc on May 23, 2016 8:30:00 AM
Our trade show department has been quite busy with the late spring and early summer bookings. As the show season is in full swing, we're getting knocked down a bit by allergies - if we're not sneezing into a tissue we're wiping down every surface with antibacterial wipes. Whoever came up with that idea was a genius!
Which reminds me...

Hey, there's a tradeshow for that! 

Paper products have become a staple in global economic history, from the development of paper for writing letters and postcards to the evolution of cold, flu and allergy season necessities.
So why wouldn't there be a show or two dedicated to two of the most used and useful paper products today - the tissue and the wipe.
These fantastic, interactive events are where the movers and shakers of the personal paper products industry meet, greet, discuss, and share ideas - but never tissues.
Before we start sneezing again, take a moment to check out these amazing conferences and conventions for an industry we hold near and dear to our hearts, um, noses.
