World Rubber Summit and Tyrexpo Asia Join Forces
The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) is to stage its next World Rubber Summit alongside TyrexpoAsia09. The news means delegates, speakers and exhibitors from both events can take advantage of the enormous networking and information sharing opportunities provided. Making the announcement, Dr Hidde Smit, the IRSG’s secretary-general, said: “Joining forces with TyrexpoAsia is a perfect opportunity for us to add real value to our World Rubber Summit in Singapore. I know this will be welcomed by the hundreds of delegates, speakers and high profile figures from the global rubber industries who will be in Singapore next March.
Paul Farrant, managing director for ECI International, the organiser of Tyrexpo Asia, commented: “ECI is delighted to have reached this agreement with the IRSG. We fully believe the combination of these two high profile industry events will add enormously to each other in terms of attracting more delegates and visitors and establishing new relationships between rubber suppliers and tyre and equipment manufacturers.”
”Next March will see the seventh consecutive staging of TyrexpoAsia and we see this association with the IRSG as further evidence of our continued interest and commitment to working in Singapore, helping to maintain its position at the forefront of the global rubber industry,” he added.
The World Rubber Summit will take place on 23 and 24 March next year at the Singapore Expo Centre, while TyrexpoAsia runs from 24 to 26 March, at the same venue. Floor space at the exhibition is already more than 65 per cent sold, with exhibitors from over 40 countries worldwide confirmed.
The IRSG recently completed the relocation of its secretariat from London to Singapore, having already decided to stage its annual World Rubber Summit in the city.
