The International Tire Exhibition & Conference (ITEC)—the largest tire manufacturing show in North America.

Join us at the John S. Knight Center in Akron, Ohio on September 15-17, 2020.
ITEC combines world class (and world-wide) exhibitors with an exceptional technical 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 throughout the world, 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, the International Tire Exhibition & Conference Tire Manufacturing is dedicated exclusively to tire makers and those that serve the industry and is hosted by Rubber & Plastics News.



The Harold Herzlich Distinguished Technology Achievement Medal recognizes those innovators, who through persistence and dedication, have advanced a paradigm shift in tire manufacturing, tire reliability or performance. Many innovations are quietly reaching the factory floor and it is the goal of ITEC to seek out individuals who go beyond abstract concepts and have been able push the evolution of tire manufacturing toward products that satisfy increasing product expectations and demands.
