IMPS 2024

Dear interested parties and former participants of the International Munich Paper Symposium.

One of the most important European paper symposia, the IMPS - INTERNATIONAL MUNICH PAPER SYMPOSIUM, will take place for the 32nd time in spring 2024, from March 19 - 21, with simultaneous translation into German and English.

The theme of the conference is: "Progress in paper and board production".
An exciting program has once again been put together with presentations from paper mills such as Model, Progroup, Norske Skog, Landqart, Klabin, Munksjö Paper, LEIPA, Mondi Frantschach, SAICA, Paper+, Kabel Premium, Maxauer Papierfabrik, Sofidel, Weig, Sappi Maastricht and Smurfit Kappa Roermond.
No other conference offers such a high proportion of presentations and participants from paper and board mills.

As in the past, the conference will be held as an in-person event at the Westin Grand Munich with its spacious conference rooms. Once again, a discounted room contingent is available directly at the conference hotel via the conference website. However, this is only available in limited numbers and for a limited time, so early booking is recommended. It is very convenient to stay at the conference hotel, as you no longer have to walk or drive in the dark in the evening and can get to your room via the elevator in a flash. The agreed special rate, from which the organizers earn nothing, should hopefully make the decision easier.

With up to 400 participants (without accompanying persons), the IMPS has been one of the largest international technological lecture events for paper and board in Central Europe for over 30 years. The manageable size of the event guarantees many discussions in a first-class atmosphere. For participants from the board and paper manufacturing industry, the printing industry and the associated supplier industries, the IMPS offers the ideal platform for producers and developers to meet.
The content is not about visions and expectations, but about initial reports on improvements that have proven themselves in practice.

Participation includes several 3-course menus, soft drinks and snacks, a gala dinner and up to 2 excursions. A cultural evening is also planned again, this time with a performance at the famous Circus Krone. In addition, the presentations and abstracts will be made available digitally.

I would be delighted to welcome you to the IMPS in 2024.

Yours faithfully,
Prof. Dr. Stephan Kleemann
(the IMPS organiser)
