AKRON—Mobility is moving at the speed of innovation, and tire technology is an essential part of that growth. The International Tire Exhibition & Conference, organized by Rubber & Plastics News, is dedicated to exploring key advancements throughout the tire and rubber industry.
The biennial conference is set to make its return Sept. 15-17, and will do so with a special presentation from Eric Higgs, president of the truck, bus and retread tires unit in the U.S. and Canada for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
Higgs' keynote address, scheduled for Sept. 15, will examine the evolution of mobility, focusing particularly on fleet management trends.
"We are thrilled to have someone of Eric's experience and knowledge present at ITEC," said Brennan Lafferty, vice president of the Crain Global Polymer Group, of which RPN is part. "The world of transportation is changing quickly. Our attendees and exhibitors need to know what to expect in the next three, five and 10 years when it comes to mobility, autos and fleets. No doubt, Bridgestone is at the table helping chart the road ahead."
