The first Asian Retread Conference (ARC 2016) has caught international media attention being the first ever such event in the region. The event is fast approaching and the organizers have nearly finalized the programme schedule. ARC 2016 will be held Sime Darby Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur from October 4-5, 2016. Jointly organized by Asian Business Media (ABM) and Epic Fresh, Malaysia, in association with TRIB, USA, the event will focus on some of the most relevant issues concerning tyre retreading.

The entry of Malaysian Rubber Board (MRB) as a Corporate Sponsor not only enhances the profile of the event but also reflects the importance of the conference. Tyre retreading industry is at a critical point of its growth and global leaders and companies involved in the area see this as an event not to be missed.

Marangoni Meccanica, Italy, Tyre Retreading Machinery (TRM, Marangoni), global names in the industry, are the other Corporate Sponsors of ARC 2016.

Dato Mohamed Ishak bin Abdul Hamid, ARC Chairman, said: “We are greatly encouraged by the response from the industry worldwide to the conference. We are now totally into making this opportunity most valuable for all who participate in it. One of the reasons for the good response is that this is a pioneering event. There has been no such meeting of retreading experts and companies in the region before. This makes us more focused to see that ARC delivers in the best possible way. There will be no compromise on the quality of the conference and everything connected to it.”
