Hiroshima, Japan — The next International Roundtable on Auto Recycling has been postponed. The event, which was to be held in Hiroshima, Japan, in October of 2020, will be rescheduled by the Japanese Auto Recycling Association.
In a note to members of the Canadian auto recycling community, Steve Fletcher wrote, “It was deemed that the travel and safety risks still inherent in the global pandemic are too great and we should err on the side of caution in the planning for this event.”
While the conference may have been delayed, the IRT’s web development team will continue to post information of interest to members of the global auto recycling community–including information on standards, industry training and research.
The International Roundtable on Auto Recycling (IRT) brings together the leading international automotive recycler associations, industry officials, guest speakers and local auto recyclers to discuss the global auto recycling industry.
Previous IRT’s in Brussels, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Coffs Harbour, Quebec City, Liverpool, Phoenix, Kushiro, Malacca City, Niagara Falls, and Norwich have been a catalyst for the global recyclers to share information about emerging technical and regulatory trends, business opportunities, and to showcase local and industry best practices.
