AKRON (April 25, 2008) — Rubber & Plastics News has canceled its Automotive Rubber Executive Conference scheduled for May 6-7 in Plymouth, Mich.
“The economic climate in the automotive industry made it difficult to attract enough registrants to make it the vibrant event we all expected,” said RPN Publications Director Robert Simmons. “Despite a world-class program with speakers from all aspects of the industry, the conference just did not draw enough attendees.
“The idea behind this conference is still viable and pertinent, but the timing was difficult for our target market. Unfortunately, we were caught in a 'perfect storm.' We plan on holding this event at a later date when the economic climate improves.”
