The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is going online with its Annual Membership Meeting, Tire Industry Honors and educational sessions that originally were planned for this fall’s Global Tire Expo (GTE)/SEMA Show.
Not only will these events now happen as Zoom events, but they will be held mostly on the same days they were scheduled had the in-person 2020 GTE/SEMA Show taken place.
“We’re excited to transition to this new platform and provide our members and the industry the opportunity to take part online in these important TIA events,” said TIA CEO Roy Littlefield. “We had more than 1,000 people pre-registered for the educational sessions alone at GTE/SEMA. I’m pleased we have found a way to allow those interested in our events to still attend them.”
Following is the schedule for TIA’s GTE/SEMA Show Zoom events. All times are EST.
