The three day event will take place from Wednesday through to Friday 20 - 22 March 2019 at the NH Collection Hotel, Grand Sablon, Brussels.

We are pleased to announce that Dr.Fulvia RAFFAELLI will present the Keynote address opening the 26th ETRA Conference.

Coordinator of the Circular Economy File on which the Conference Programme is built, Dr.Raffaelli will discuss the current Commission focus, the role of DG Grow and how it sets the stage for implementation of the Circular Economy policy. 

The Plenary sessions that follow will focus on the many potentials for tyre recyclers and the ever-broadening range of material users to respond to the challenges of the Circular Economy. Each panel includes a period of questions and discussion during which delegates may expand upon the subject. Further, there are also many informal opportunities for delegates and speakers to meet and discuss common interests during Matchmaking activities, cocktail receptions and meals, etc.
