TIA to Organise Retreading Conference
In February 2007, the American Tire Industry Association (TIA) will hold its “TIA Commercial Tire, Retread & Recycling Conference” for the first time. This event will take place 6-8 February in Tampa (Florida, USA) and will replace the World Tire Expo. This was held in 2005 for the last time. The new Commercial Tire and Retreading Conference will be held in concurrence with the “Transportation Technology Exhibition”. According to TIA president Bob Malerba this new event is not only good for training and educating employees in retreading businesses but also for meeting suppliers and market players. More information is available at www.tireindustry.org. About a year ago the first rumours about the future of the then sluggish World Tire Expo appeared.
