International Rubber Conference Organisation
The International Rubber Conference Organisation (IRCO) is an association of rubber societies from around the world which plan the calendar for the annual International Rubber Conference (IRC). By careful selection of conference proposals from IRCO member organisation and monitoring of events, the IRCO ensures that all conferences run by its member societies meet the very demanding requirements dictated by the IRCO and thus have been providing delegates with first-class conferences since 1966.
A main International Rubber Conference is held annually, as shown below. In 2009 the IRCO Committee decided to re-introduce the RubberCon series, starting in 2011. This series provides for smaller, more specialised events, but still adhering to the high IRCO standards.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19), unfortunately both the IRC 2020 in India and the RubberCon 2020 in France will be postponed.
IRC 2020 will now be held on 15-17 April 2021 in Chennai, India.
RubberCon 2020 will now be held on 11-12 February 2021 in Paris, France.
The IRCO members would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone in the international rubber community all the very best during these challenging times and we hope to see you all again soon at a future IRCO conference.
