After the successful launch of the first and second editions of Asian Latex Conference (ALC) in 2013 and 2015 in Kochi, India, Rubber Asia, Asia’s premier rubber magazine and flagship publication of Asian Business Media (ABM), is taking the third edition of this grand, biennial global event out of the Indian borders. ALC 2017, an initiative jointly organised by ABM and EPIC FRESH, will take place from October 3-4, 2017, at Sime Darby Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

New venue

There are obvious reasons for the relocation of the venue to Malaysia. A hub of the world latex & dipped goods industry, most of the global industry majors are located in Malaysia. For the industry players in the neighbouring countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka too, it will be an ideal venue for a latex (Natural & Synthetic) conference.
Dr Jay Nambiar, the world-renowned Consultant and Trainer in the fields of Rubber Processing, Technology and Factory Management, is once again the Conference Chairman of the 2017 edition of ALC.

Conference theme

Themed Green & Lean Strategies for the Natural and Synthetic Latex Industries, ALC 2017 will discuss the latest innovations and trends in world latex industry with a view to combating challenges of the ongoing global slowdown and falling prices, and also explore new opportunities in the industry. The Mini-Exhibition, running parallel to the conference at the same venue, will showcase the latest technologies and innovative products and services offered by industry majors across the world.

Interactive platform

ALC 2017 is a major interactive platform for all in the latex & dipped goods industry – processors, manufacturers of gloves, condoms, catheters and balloons, raw material & chemical suppliers, mould& machinery makers, traders, etc. They have the opportunity to freely interact with leaders and experts in the industry.
ALC 2017 is also the most effective platform for companies to gain maximum mileage and exposure by making the best of the opportunities for marketing and sponsorship at competitive rates.
