Filed under: Carbon Black, Conferences — Notch @ 3:13 pm

The Asia Pacific Carbon Black Conference, which was scheduled to be held in Singapore from November 9-10, 2022, has been postponed to 2023. Tentative dates are October 1-3, 2023, but that may be moved forward to the April-to-June period depending on the COVID outlook at that time. A final decision will be made in June.

The conference’s International Advisory Board cited the evolving Covid situation, the indoor mask mandates still in force in Singapore, China’s current battle with Covid, huge increases in airfares due to oil price spikes and several operational issues as the factors behind the decision.

The Carbon Black China 2022 conference, which was scheduled for April 19-22, 2022 in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, has been postponed until the second half of the year due to COVID. The specific dates of the conference will be determined by conditions at that time.

Tire Tech Expo postponed from April to May 2022

Filed under: Carbon Black, Conferences, General, Tires — Notch @ 12:12 pm

Due to the current rapid escalation of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 throughout Europe, the Tire Technology Expo 2022 is being postponed by 6 weeks and will now be held on May 18-20, 2022. The location remains the same, the Deutche Messe exhibition center in Hannover, Germany.

Conference organizers said they are making the change to enable delegates, speakers, and exhibitors to enjoy the show in the early summer when many of the complications associated with Covid-19 are less impactful. “Based on everything we have seen in the last two years,” Tony Robinson, founder of the conference, said, “A lower risk of Covid-19 transmission in the warmer months is the most significant benefit of the 6 week postponement along with easier travel and hopefully no requirement for mask wearing or other restrictions.”
