AKRON (Aug. 15, 2014) — As the ITEC Tire Dealers/Auto Service show in Orlando, Fla., kicks off this week, Aug. 20-22, Tire Business will use exciting ways to get the word out to readers about what's going on at the show.
- Each day, Tire Business staff members will Tweet using the hashtags #ITEC2014 and #ITECEducates, and take questions using #ITECQA. “We will let you know what's happening in our educational sessions, on our panels and how the networking events are going,” said Alaina Scott, Tire Business online manager.
- Each day photo galleries will be posted at www.tirebusiness.com/ITECDay1, www.tirebusiness.com/ITECDay2 and www.tirebusiness.com/ITECDay3. Videos from the show also will be posted to the website.
