BOWIE, Md. (Aug. 15, 2014) — Early bird registration for the Tire Industry Association’s (TIA) 2015 OTR Tire Conference, scheduled for Feb. 18-21 in Tucson, will end Sept. 1.
That will be the last day registrants can receive the early bird rate of $395 for the first person from one company and $325 for each additional person, according to TIA. Starting Sept. 2, registration rises to $425 for the first person at $355 for each additional person.
The 2015 OTR Conference will be held at the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa in Tucson, the association said.
TIA is reserving a block of rooms at La Paloma for conference attendees at $185 per night. Jan. 18, 2015, is the cutoff date for the special rate, and half the block of rooms is already booked, TIA said.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
