Smithers Rapra’s Carbon Black World conference runs biennially, historically alternating between North America and Europe.

New in 2016, Carbon Black World will be co-located with the 2016 Traction Summit, May 25-27 at the Omni Fort Worth.

Presentations for both events are available to delegates for a single delegate ticket price and attendees registered for either conference will be able to experience the best of carbon black and tires, rubber, feedstock, production technology, and industry-wide dynamics all under one roof.

WEDNESDAY MAY 25: The Future of Our Industries

With the autonomous vehicles on everyone’s mind, we look first to the future. Truly exploring the future of transportation, this session covers the future of vehicles, connected cars, tire concerns, materials forecasts, changing demographics and more.

THURSDAY MAY 26: Feedstock, Materials and Equipment

Feedstock, materials and equipment concerns drive much of the conversation in the carbon black industry. Deeper insight into the latest innovations and updates across all three areas enhances growth and opportunity across the industry.

Experience Fort Worth, Texas

Fort Worth is known as the city where the West begins. Once an important pioneer outpost turned king of the cattle industry, and now a booming corporate center, Fort Worth is centrally located in the heart of Texas.

Fort Worth was selected to host the co-located 2016 Traction Summit and Carbon Black World event because of its convenience to multiple international airports, home to several world-class museums, rich American history and incredible dining and nightlife. There’s no shortage of things to do in Cowtown.
