Sappi virtual trade fair

As an alternative to conventional face-to-face trade fairs, Sappi was one of the first companies to stage an innovative virtual trade fair with live broadcasts of press conferences, interviews and product presentations of the company’s new speciality papers – accompanied by live chats involving the sales team.
