RubberCon 2014: Advanced Engineering & Materials Developments

14th May 2014 - 15th May 2014

Organised by IOM Communications Ltd

RubberCon 2014 was hosted in the historic home to the global rubber industry - Manchester - the location where Thomas Hancock and Charles Macintosh first built their joint factory to produce waterproof clothing in 1825.

Hancock, and Manchester, can lay claim to the first patent of vulcanisation in the world as well as being the home of the invention of the internal mixer.
As a result Manchester’s association with the origins of the rubber industry is assured and RubberCon 2014 reflected that legacy by addressing the topics, needs and aspirations of the rubber industry looking forwards into the future.
