TAPPI has announced a host of networking events that are in store for the CorrExpo 2023 show on August 28-30 at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
Golf — To kick off the event in good fashion, golfers will tee off at 9 a.m. Monday for the Corrugated Classic Golf Tournament at the Sleepy Hollow Golf Course. Buses will depart from the Hilton, Marriott and the Westin hotels. The Sleepy Hollow course offers beautiful views of the Cuyahoga River Valley and was named one of Golfweek’s top five courses in Ohio.
Originally opening in 1924 as a private country club, the course has a classic “out and in” layout and has been the site for many amateur and professional tournaments, including qualifying events for USGA championships.
The Welcome Reception — The opening reception at CorrExpo — from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the Hilton Cleveland — will set the stage for the exciting and informative event to follow.
