IFPED Announces Changes
to its Commercialism Policy
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, logos, failure to substantiate performance claims, and failure to objectively discuss alternative methods, processes or equipment are indicators of a commercial sales presentation.
