Exhibitions | TAKEO PAPER SHOW 2009 - SUPER HEADS'


Describing visions of paper from perspectives of the future of skilled manufacturing, the future of media, and the future of sensibility.

TAKEO PAPER SHOW 2009 shifted away from the exhibition-based format employed by previous shows, and instead used a conference format.
Focusing on topics such as the situation faced by paper, and the roles and characterstics of paper today, it was the show’s first attempt to gaze into the future.
Over two full days, each of 27 SUPER HEADS' - experts in different areas of paper invited from around the world - gave short 30-minute presentations full of their individual ideas and wisdom. Afterwards, extracts from the presentations were collated into a Daily Report that was distributed at the venue the same day.
