Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center hotel exterior

Welcome to Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center! We are proud to be a preferred hotel for guests of the TAPPI Student Summit.

The TAPPI/PIMA Student Summit is an annual event designed for students interested in the pulp, paper, packaging and allied industries. Attendees can interact directly with industry leaders and learn valuable information about employment, career opportunities within their field and key industry challenges.

This is the only event that brings together students from paper and packaging schools to reinforce their interest in joining the industry. Past session topics have included a number of subjects not taught as part of a typical curriculum, including nanotechnology, printed electronics and the state of the industry.

The Student Summit will take place over the weekend of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Interviews start Friday afternoon with opening sessions beginning Saturday morning and tours lasting until Monday at noon. There will also be a plant tour, an engineering competition and a fun group outing built into the schedule.
