Organized by Rubber & Plastics News, the International Tire Exhibition & Conference (ITEC) is the largest tire manufacturing trade show and conference in North America.
The show returns to the John S. Knight Center in Akron, Ohio, on September 13 – 15, 2022. ITEC combines world class (and worldwide) exhibitors with an exceptional technical conference program.
As much attention is paid to building an outstanding conference program as is spent on gathering exhibitors who can provide real-world experience and solutions. Attendees, who are decision makers and technical people from across the globe, can learn as much on the exhibit floor as in the conference rooms.
The schedule for the three-day event combines dedicated exhibit time with seminars, special presentations, keynote addresses and panel discussions. Attendees will find exhibitors from every aspect of tire manufacturing offering solutions and improvements for tire makers. ITEC is known for having a high percentage of attendees who make purchasing decisions, as well as the technical people who influence buying decisions. Networking happens on and off the show floor during the free lunches, refreshment breaks and the popular opening night reception.
Held every two years, ITEC is dedicated exclusively to tire makers and those that serve the industry.
