LONDON—Crain Communications Ltd., the organizer of Future Tire 2014 in Brussels, has been forced to postpone the event because the conference hotel's leaseholder has filed for bankruptcy, forcing the hotel to shut.
Crain Communications Ltd. is a subsidiary of Crain Communications Inc., which publishes Rubber & Plastics News.
Future Tire 2014 was scheduled for June 17-18 at Le Méridien Brussels Hotel, which announced this week it is being forced to close due to the bankruptcy of Starman Bruxelles Hotel SPRL, the hotel's lease holder.
The bankruptcy follows a legal dispute between Starman Bruxelles and the owner of the building, Swiss Hotels Leasing.
Among the speakers who were scheduled to address the event were: Edoardo Spina, automotive analysts at Exane BNP Paribas; Harjeev Kandhari, executive director, Infinity Tyres Europe Group; Rudolf Mačák, head of research and development, Mitas Tyres; and Lie Junius, director, public affairs and corporate communications EMEA, Goodyear.
