SINGAPORE—The International Rubber Study Group is postponing its World Rubber Summit until September, according to an IRSG news release.
The meeting originally was scheduled for May 4-6 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The IRSG made the decision to postpone the meeting after consulting with government officials in the Ivory Coast and with the meeting's steering committee, according to IRSG Secretary General Salvatore Pinizzotto.
The IRSG is considering possible meeting dates during September and will update IRSG members and potential attendees as soon as possible, he said.
Online registration for the World Rubber Summit remains open.
"We propose for registrants to tick 'Bank Transfer' as an option that will allow the registrant to choose later to pay via credit card or transfer the order nearer the date of (the) summit," Pinizzotto said.
