The Conference Season Begins: Retreading Business Organises Conferences at TyreXpo Asia and THE TIRE COLOGNE

In recent years, Retreading Business has been heavily involved in developing retreading and tyre recycling-related conferences at tyre industry exhibitions worldwide, including publishing the events on our website, YouTube channels and various other digital platforms.

All Systems Go For Asian and European Conferences

This year will be no different, and in May and June, it will be all systems go as we culminate months of preparations with the organisation of conference events for the Asian and European markets, respectively. Firstly, we will be organising a Retreading Conference at TyeXpo Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, between 15-17 May. This will be followed from 4-6 June with the Circular Economy Forum at THE TIRE COLOGNE in Germany.

TyreXpo Asia Retreading Conference

At TyreXpo Asia in Bangkok, the Retreading Conference will take place from 11.30 – 17.15 on Wednesday, 15 May and from 10.00 until 11.30 the following day. This will then be followed by the Tyre Business Forum, which will run till the end of the day.

Retreading sessions on Wed 15 will focus on analysing key retread markets worldwide and provide interested parties with a good overview of how the retread market differs across the various regional markets. Retreading Business editor Michael Hutt will begin with an in-depth analysis of the Southeast Asian retread market. This will be followed by David Stevens, the Managing Director of TRIB, with an update on the North American market, Daniel Rojas, General Manager of ARNEC, on the South American market, and Guido Gambassi, President of BIPAVER, on the European retread sector.

We will then dive deeper into trends and challenges for Southeast Asian retreaders with a live panel discussion chaired by Retreading Business Publisher David Wilson and featuring Edmund Wong, President of TRMAM, Tai Qisheng, and Jason Tedja from GIIB and Kartindo Rubber, respectively. Michael Hutt, editor of Retreading Business, will also join the panel discussion.

On Day 2, the focus switches to educational topics, and we concentrate on two subjects we hope attendees will find of significant use in their businesses. Firstly, Paulo Cesar Moraz from Univipal, Vipal’s technical university, will present a seminar on managing a retread plant cost-efficiently. Daniel Rojas’s second presentation will follow this. This time, Daniel will be giving us the benefit of his vast experience by explaining how the retreading industry worldwide can successfully deal with governments. At a time when not all countries have an organisation that can defend the interests of the retreading industry to those in power, this should be interesting for many in developing markets.

All the conference sessions at TyreXpo Asia will be free to attend. They will also be recorded and available on our digital platforms after the event.

THE TIRE COLOGNE Circular Economy Forum

Meanwhile, at THE TIRE COLOGNE from 4-6 June, Retreading Business and Tyre & Rubber Recycling will moderate events on the Circular Economy stage. Over three days, there will be a mix of individual presentations, panel discussions, and presentations from exhibitors. Retreading Business Publisher David Wilson will moderate the events on the stage.

Key events on Day One will include 3 presentations on the Future of Retreading. These will come from the perspective of a retreader, a tyre manufacturer and a tread rubber supplier, offering a mixed balance of views. We will also have two-panel discussions, one in English and one in German. The English-speaking panel will discuss “How can the retreading industry make its sustainability credentials count?” The AZUR Network will host the German session and will address the related topic of “Sustainable Transformation of Mobility with Retreaded Tyres.”

Day two will feature presentations from Exhibitors Synthos, Nuoka, and Brimstone and a presentation from David Stevens from TRIB on “Communicating the Positive Message of Retreading.” A panel discussion will also focus on Future Challenges for Independent Retreaders.

Day three will include a mix of presentations on the Tyre Recycling Sector, including a panel discussion on Tyre Recycling within the Circular Economy, several Technology-related presentations, and a presentation on the future of retreading from an association’s perspective.

Retreading Business Excited to be Representing the Best of Retreading

David Wilson, Publisher of Retreading Business, commented: “We are excited to once again be involved in organising conference sessions for the tyre retreading and recycling sectors at TyreXpo Asia and THE TIRE COLOGNE, two of the most important tyre industry exhibitions worldwide. We hope these sessions will provide plenty of impetus and market insights for retreaders worldwide, and we thank both Alwin Seow at Informa and Ingo Riedeberger at Koelnmesse for their support and cooperation.”

Once the full programme is finalised, a list of topics and speakers will be published soon. Again, the conference sessions will be recorded and available across our platforms after the event.
