The 14th Global Rubber Conference 2018

Date: 5 -7 April 2018
Location: Cambodia

Sihanoukville, Cambodia has been chosen to be the host venue of the 14th Global Rubber Conference. This prestigious Conference is hosted and co-organized by the Association for Rubber Development of Cambodia, produced, organized and managed by Confexhub Group and supported by International Rubber Research Development Board (IRRDB) and over 10 international rubber government bodies and associations. The GRC 2018 is expected to attract more than 300 delegates from natural and synthetic rubber (both upstream and downstream sectors) and their supporting industries representing over 25 countries.

This conference is designed to supports the growth of the rubber industry by delivering objectives, accurate updates and latest R&D to conference delegates and provide an excellent platform to discuss commercial prospects and opportunities and better understanding on the rubber market pricings.

As the only platform that brings together the regulatory authorities and commercial players of the rubber and rubber-products, it has been proven to be highly successful in its objectives to facilitate the exchange of ideas and insight into the global rubber industry and the price discovery of rubber.
