Littlefield: 'TIA World Tire Expo to focus on retreading'

Feb. 27, 2004

The Tire Industry Association's (TIA) 2005 World Tire Expo will concentrate on retreading and the rest of the commercial tire market, TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield told today at the association's OTR Tire Conference in Kissimmee, Fla.

TIA board members met this week in Kissimmee to discuss plans for the Louisville, Ky., show, including advertising.

Littlefield says the World Tire Expo will not be a "mini-SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show."

The most recent World Tire Expo was held last March.
