Dr Stephen Evans, secretary general of the International Rubber Study Group (IRSG), will open Tyrexpo Asia 2013 in Singapore March 19-21, 2013.

Dr Evans is the head of the internationally recognized IRSG, the authoritative source of statistical data and analysis for all aspects of the global rubber industry.

“I am delighted to accept the invitation to open and make the keynote presentation at Tyrexpo Asia,” says Dr Evans. “As an important regional event bringing together hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of delegates in Singapore, the show is of direct relevance and importance to the work of the IRSG.”

Dr Evans has worked with a range of leading chemicals businesses before moving into the elastomer sector with both Shell and Kraton Performance Polymers. He joined the Singapore-based IRSG as secretary general in 2010.

“We are delighted that Dr Evans has agreed to be our keynote speaker next year,” says Rowena Suthers, sales director for show organizer ECI International. “His keen and expert insight into the global rubber industry will be of great interest to everyone involved in tire manufacturing, retreading and materials processing.”

Meanwhile, the show itself continues to attract exhibitors at an unprecedented rate. More than 200 businesses have now confirmed their involvement at the Singapore Expo Centre. In 2011, the exhibition drew around 160 exhibitors.
