Windy City #20 Cancelled for 2020

July 8, 2020 – In March 2020, we were able to move the dates for the 2020 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention from April 17-19, 2020 to September 11-13, 2020.  At that time, we had hoped that the COVID-19 situation would have progressed to the point where we’d be able to hold our convention this September.
We regret to announce that after consultation with our convention hotel, the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, Illinois, we have determined that it is not possible to hold our convention this year due to COVID-19.  The next Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is scheduled for April 16-18, 2021 at the same location. All dealer table reservations and membership pre-registrations for 2020 will be honored for the 2021 convention dates. The Westin has told us that hotel reservations for the 2020 convention will be cancelled automatically, but we advise that you confirm that your booking has been cancelled (after giving the Westin a bit of time to do so). Those members with reservations at hotels other than the Westin and all members with travel reservations are advised to revise their bookings.
If you cannot attend on the 2021 dates and have already pre-registered (or purchased dealer tables), please let us know (using the “Contact” option at and we will provide a refund.
The 2020 show would have been our 20th, and we had plans to make it our best yet.  We’ll take this extra time to work on making what will now be our 20th show (albeit in 2021) even better!
We are revising our web site to correspond to the 2021 convention information.  Stay safe!
