Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is one of the oldest, and largest, tire manufacturers in North America. As you might expect, its annual dealer meeting is well attended.
A who's who of tire dealers gathered at the 2012 Goodyear Dealer Conference in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 29-31. Retailers, wholesale distributors, commercial dealers, mass merchandisers (yes, Sears Holdings Corp. was represented) and others were on hand to hear what Goodyear had to say about its 2012 plans.
Modern Tire Dealer was on hand to record the proceedings for posterity.
In additon to written reports from the general sessions and the trade show floor, we also covered the event photographically.
Jimmie Johnson, five-time NASCAR Cup champion, was on hand to get the crowd motivated. Who else was there? To see for yourselves, visit our photo gallery by clicking here.
