EU lobbyist to speak at TIMCON AGM

27 July 2017

A prominent EU lobbyist will present his prognosis for Brexit at the annual general meeting of the Timber Packaging & Pallet Confederation (TIMCON) next month.

Daniel Guéguen, head of strategy and lobbying at Brussels-based training and consultancy firm PACT European Affairs, will present an overview to TIMCON members of key European issues that will affect the packaging and pallet business, along with his strong opinions about the likely pathway and outcome of the forthcoming Brexit negotiations.

 “The Brexit vote last year continues to cause uncertainty for businesses of all types and we are really looking forward to hearing Mr Guéguen’s thoughts on what is ahead and how this will impact on our sector,” said TIMCON president John Dye.

“This is one of the informative and thought-provoking presentations we have on the AGM and part of TIMCON’s ongoing activities to keep its members up to date with the latest information about the market.”

The TIMCON meeting will take place in Dublin, Ireland on September 4-5.

There will also be presentations on Irish forests and Irish pallet and packaging industry; opportunities and challenges in the Irish sawmilling industry; and updates from the Timber Trade Federation (TTF) and European Federation of Wooden Pallet & Packaging Manufacturers (FEFPEB).
