About the Conference
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 professionals from across the world, can learn as much on the exhibit floor as in the conference rooms.
2020 Conference Topics Include:
• Advances in Manufacturing Equipment
• Advanced Material Characterization
• ASTM Standards for Tires
• Automation in Tire Processing
• Materials to Enhance Tire Performance
• Reinforcing Materials
• Tire Failure and Analysis
• Tires for Future Applications
• Keynote Address
• Harold Herzlich Award Address
• Invited Plenary Lectures
• Roundtable Discussions
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 is dedicated exclusively to tire makers and those that serve the industry and is hosted by Rubber & Plastics News.
