The National Paper Trade Association (NPTA) will educate new and experienced attendees during Paper School this fall. Taking place Sept. 15, 2015 in conjunction with Graph Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago, Paper School will cover the most important topics in paper. “Paper School is a huge opportunity for the merchants to communicate the value of paper to their print buyer and invite them to participate in an intensive program where they can gain information about paper,” said Hilton Maze, NPTA Paper Committee Chairman and President and Chief Executive Officer of Simon Miller Paper & Packaging. “At Paper School, attendees receive a strong foundation of paper knowledge and also gain access to the latest graphic communications technologies at Graph Expo.” The five classroom sections are taught by paper industry leading experts from top paper mills including International Paper, Neenah, Mohawk, Appleton Coated and Domtar. Paper School students will take a guided tour of the Graph Expo 15 tradeshow floor for a hands-on demonstration of the most advanced printing equipment in the world.
Oil prices gained on Friday as global equity markets extended their slide. Meanwhile, data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed U.S. crude stockpiles jumped more than expected last week.
“The enhanced volatility in the market in general is spilling over into energy, as investors are reducing risk,” said Rob Thummel, managing director at Tortoise, which manages $16 billion in energy-related assets. “When you have volatile equity markets, the risk-off trade is happening and you’ve got a third consecutive build, that’s generally not a good recipe for crude oil prices.”
Meanwhile, the EIA reported on Thursday that U.S. crude inventories rose by 6 million barrels last week, compared with the general consensus of a 2.6 million-barrel increase.
Just a week earlier, the EIA reported a near-8-million barrel build in U.S. crude stocks, which was quadruple expectations.
