Carbon Black World

September 13-14, 2021
Charlotte, North Carolina (US)

Smithers Carbon Black World Returns to Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2021!

Smithers Carbon Black World will take place September 13-14, 2021, in Charlotte, North Carlonia! Now in its 16th biennial year, this event regularly attracts an international delegation of producers, end-users, and equipment solution providers from across the tire, rubber, plastics, compounds and ink industries to make new connections, share strategic insights, and explore future opportunities in the marketplace with key influencers and decision makers from all aspects of the value chain!

Attendee safety is our top priority! While the 2021 conference presents us with the opportunity to get back to business, we recognize that this year will be a little different. We must start with an acknowledgement that the situation remains fluid and subject to change as circumstances, such as governmental recommendations, vaccination rate, and other factors dictate. Learn more about our on-site event protocol here.
