NTDA Director Stefan Hay, says: “We know that Tyre Talk was extremely popular and well supported at Brityrex in 2012. This year’s programm will build on that success by delivering sharp, focused and informative seminars on the subjects we know will be of interest and value to the trade. We will be announcing a high-quality line-up of speakers in the near future and expect even more NTDA members and tire industry professionals to get behind this unparalleled UK event.”

Paul Farrant from Singex-ECI, adds: “We are delighted that the NTDA is taking the lead to deliver an outstanding series of Tyre Talk seminars. Getting the latest business updates on key issues will be another compelling reason for the trade to visit and get involved in the show this October.”
