Pirelli to sponsor Institute of Road Transport Engineers conference
Pirelli will again sponsor the Institute of Road Transport Engineers Conference on 17 September at Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth. The annual conference, organised by the IRTE, provides information around the latest technological advancements and the changing legal landscape affecting the commercial transport industry.
This is Pirelli’s fifth year sponsoring the event, and they will be taking a selection of key fleet customers to enjoy the conference. Members of Pirelli’s sales team will be there to present Pirelli’s fleet offering to attendees.
Known as one of the more technical fleet conferences designed specifically for fleet engineers, this year’s speakers will include: London Transport Commissioner, David Cebon (professor of mechanical engineering, Cambridge University), Dr Steve Summerskill and Dr Russell Marshall (senior lecturer in product and industrial design, Loughborough Design School) and many others.
Director of truck, Chris Evans said: “The IRTE is Britain’s premier body for fleet engineers and is very well respected in the industry, which is why is makes complete sense for us to sponsor the event as a premium tyre manufacturer. We hope our fleet customers enjoy the day.”
Following the conference, Pirelli will feature in the IRTE magazine, Transport Engineer, with a case study on long-term fleet customer Roger Warnes.
