BOWIE, Md. (May 22, 2003) — The World Tire Expo, organized by the Tire Industry Association, will be held April 20-22, 2005, in the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Ky.
The convention center hosted the event for the first time in March. The show returned to Louisville—where it formerly had been held at another location in that city—after a three-year stint in Nashville, Tenn. Organizers then had decided to put the commercial and retreading show on a two-year schedule.
“There's a lot of enthusiasm for World Tire Expo to continue and to have Louisville again play host,” said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.
The 2005 show will coincide with “Thunder over Louisville,” a fireworks display on April 23.
