London – Two major global rubber events, IRC2020 and RubberCon2020 have been postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers have announced.
Organised by the Indian Rubber Institute, the 2020 edition of IRC was set to be held 15-17 October in Chennai, India.
The event, which will be themed around sustainable technology, innovation and mobility, has now been postponed to an as-of-yet unannounced date.
