The Book Industry Guild of New York

Along with Maple Press and Glatfelter Paper

invite industry junior staff members

to the Twenty-Third Annual Plant / Mill Tour


Where: To Maple and Glatfelter

When: Tuesday May 16 – Wednesday May 17, 2017

What: Tours of the plant and the paper mill


The Lowdown: We will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Port Authority in New York City on Tuesday morning and travel by bus to Glatfelter in Spring Grove, PA, where guided tours of the mill will be given. Following the tour we will go to our hotel for the night, the Heritage Hills Resort in York, PA. You will be given the evening to spend on your own at the resort, which does feature a restaurant and a pub. Wednesday morning will be spent touring the Maple Press and learning the bookmaking process, after which we will return to New York City to arrive around 5:00 p.m.


The Fine Print: There is no cost for participants on this trip for the bus or the hotel; however, dinner on Tuesday evening and lunch on the return trip to NYC at a Thruway rest stop are NOT included. Spots are limited and will be filled strictly on a first-come basis. Because of the limited space, reservations will be restricted to two per company. Additional names can be placed on a waiting list in the event of cancellations. To reserve a spot, or if you have any questions, please send an e-mail to Steve Bedney at sbedney@gmail.com. Please include an e-mail address and telephone number, and specify if you require vegetarian meals. Participants will be notified of the details prior to the trip.


This is The Guild’s twenty-third running of the spring paper mill / printing plant trip. All of the previous trips filled up quickly, so don’t delay in making your reservation.


***NOTES: This trip is specifically geared to junior staff members in the industry who have had no or very limited exposure to a printing plant or paper mill. Junior staff only should enroll.


Companies or individuals applying for participation in the trip MUST be BIGNY members, or, if your company is not a corporate member, you may be sponsored by an individual member from within your company. Nonmembers will be accepted, but will automatically be waitlisted and a spot on the trip is not guaranteed.


Finally, the bus will NOT make any unscheduled stops on the return trip to NYC to discharge passengers. We will return everyone to the point of origin at the Port Authority.


See you in May!
