TIA sponsoring 2015 Global Retread Symposium
The US Tire Industry Association (TIA) is to host a Global Retread Symposium on Wednesday, 4 November 2015, from 3pm – 5pm during the Global Tire Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “Our goal is to gather retread associations from around the world to discuss issues that cross international boundaries and impact the industry as a whole,” said TIA president Freda Pratt-Boyer.
The purpose of the symposium will be to discuss international issues such as taxes, regulations, restrictions and noise control; safety standards on truck tyre retreads; new tyre issues that affect retreads; and passenger retreading.
“Although details of the event are still being formulated at this time, we have reached out to a number of retread groups across the globe about their participation and the interest level is very strong,” said TIA executive vice president Roy Littlefield.
The event is being co-sponsored by the Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB).
