SINGAPORE (Oct. 1, 2014) — The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG), in partnership with SingEx Exhibitions, will launch its revamped World Rubber Summit 2015, which is scheduled for March 24-25 in Singapore at MAX Atria at Singapore EXPO.
Held under the umbrella of “World Rubber Week,” the event takes place alongside Tyrexpo Asia, IRSG's Assembly of Nations and other related industry seminars and networking receptions.
The summit — on the theme, “Productivity & Sustainability for Tomorrow's Market—What Drives It?” — is designed to examine how world leaders and global CEOs are adjusting to the rapidly changing world economy and new global paradigms that may impact the rubber industry, organizers said.
It will feature keynotes, interactive panel discussions and, for the first time, topical in-depth breakout sessions presented by industry leaders and subject matter experts. Organizers said that key takeaways include insights ranging from the fast-moving tire business environment to the outlook and opportunities in the various market segments.
Summit participants can discuss commodity pricing, industry innovations and alternative sources of capital, which are “key issues contributing towards growth prospects and sustainability of the rubber industry,” according to event organizers.
