Participant Feedback

This international industry forum marks its 20th anniversary. Over the years the trade show has earned a well-deserved reputation among the industry experts from many countries.
Sergey Tsyb, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade

The trade show has proved itself as a respected expert platform. A large number of international companies participating in the trade show testify to the great interest in this field not only among Russian but also foreign companies, manufacturers and developers of rubber goods.
Alexander Orlov, Deputy Director of Department of Chemical Technology and Timber Industry of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade

The essential component of the chemical industry is production of rubber and rubber goods. Thats why our industry faces specific tasks such as upgrading, introduction of new technologies, recipes, and expansion of product range. Tires & Rubber has assisted in carrying out the tasks for over 20 years.
