TIA Cancels Retread Appearance Contest

Due to current economic conditions and the increased cost of shipping, TIA has canceled its 2009 Retread Appearance Contest (RAC) that was planned to be held in conjunction with the 2009 TIA Commercial Tire & Retread Conference (CTRC).

While the RAC has been eliminated, there are still plenty of informative seminars and ample opportunities for networking and generating sales at the 2009 CTRC, which will be held Feb. 9-11, TIA said.

Registration for the conference is still open, and exhibition space is still available for the TIA Pavilion, which is co-located with the American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council Annual Meeting and Trade Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. The hotel registration deadline is Jan. 16, 2009. (Tire Review/Akron)
