With the Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention taking place next week (September 10-12, 2021), we thought we’d send an update with some breaking news.  

Effective today, Illinois has joined many other states in instituting a mask mandate for all indoor gatherings (such as our convention).  Accordingly, all convention attendees over the age of 2 (and let’s face it, at a pulp show, we don’t have many folks in the 20 and under crowd, let alone the 2 and under crowd), whether or not they have been vaccinated, will be required to be masked while in the convention space.

As has been the case since our show in 2008, this year’s convention will be held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center, Lombard, Illinois.   

As a reminder, it’s not too late to register for hotel rooms and get the convention rate; you can use this link that the hotel has set up for our show: 


In order to get the convention rate, you must book by 5:00 pm Central on September 5, 2021.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing all our old friends, and making some new ones, next week!
