The annual pairing of the California Tire Dealers Association (CTDA) with Billy Eordekian is almost upon us. And tire- and wheel-related industry vendors and dealers are invited.

CTDA and event underwriter 1-800Everyrim-OEM Wheels, owned by Eordekian, will hold their annual New Year Luncheon on Jan. 17, 2018, at The Dal Rae Restaurant in Pico Rivera, Calif.

David Martin, president of the Tire Industry Association (TIA) and director of sales for American Tire Distributors Inc., and Greg Parker, chairman of SEMA’s Wheel & Tire Council and national account sales and marketing director for Wegmann automotive USA Inc., will be featured speakers. Chris Barry, president of CTDA and western regional manager for the Independent Tire Dealers Group, will be the master of ceremonies.

Gold sponsors to date are Federated Insurance, Yokohama Tire Corp., Lakin Tire West Inc. and 1-800EveryRim. Silver sponsors are ATV Inc., which does business as American Tire Depot, and Net Driven.

“With all due respect to our important speakers, the best part of our event is the pre-luncheon social period, including refreshments and appetizers,” says Eordekian. “I call it socially networking the old-fashioned way!”

The event is free to tire and wheel related industry vendors and dealers. Those interested in attending, sponsoring, or providing door prizes should contact Eordekian at Billy@1-800EveryRim.com.
