Attendees at the recent Paper Summit 2002 expo and conference in Atlanta were reportedly upbeat about what they saw and heard at the paper-industry show. More than 5,000 participants from such paper producers as Georgia-Pacific, International Paper, Inland Paperboard, Gulf States Paper and Visy Paper perused displays from more than 325 machinery and materials suppliers. Several hundred also attended the TAPPI Technology Summit and other conference sessions led by trade associations.

"Most of the exhibitors we spoke with said they received a great deal of interest in their new products and several sold equipment on the show floor," said Leo Nadolske, vice president of trade shows for Paperloop, the organizer of the Paper Summit. The exec added that vendors were cautiously optimistic that the economy was improving and equipment purchases would grow.
