The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) and SingEx Exhibitions, together with Enterprise Singapore as Strategic Partner, are organizing the World Rubber Summit (WRS) 2019, to be held on 18-19 March 2019 in Park Royal on Beach Road, Singapore. ‘'From Evolution to Revolution: New Paths for the Rubber Economy'' will be the theme of the WRS 2019.
“Rubber is omnipresent in our everyday life, moving our lives and our world and it is a very important source of living for many people around the globe,” IRSG noted. Innovation and technology transfer have always played a crucial role in developing a sector that has constantly evolved adapting to fast changing economic, social and environmental conditions worldwide, it said.
Today new challenges are ahead: industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies, changing demographics and consumer preferences, rise of new technologies and climate changes. They have the potential to trigger trends that require new approaches through the whole rubber value chain, IRSG added. The two-day World Rubber Summit (WRS) is a unique and exclusive opportunity for global leaders to meet, share best practices and lay the foundations for future collaborations.
