BOWIE, MD — The Tire Industry Association’s (TIA) Off-The-Road (OTR) Tire Conference is set to take place next month in central Florida. This annual event attracts the largest gathering of executives and business owners that manufacture, service, repair, retread or supply products for the OTR market. Off-road racer Walker “The Legend” Evans will be the keynote speaker for the event.
The OTR Tire Conference takes place Thursday through Saturday, February 26-28, at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Fla. In addition to a number of educational seminars and presentations, the event will feature several social functions, including a shotgun scramble golf tournament at the Falcon’s Fire, a Rees Jones signature links-style golf course.
The Conference program is stacked with notable OTR tire industry representatives addressing subjects from “How to Build a Better You” to “The Good Business of Moving Toward a Safer Workplace.” Evans’ keynote address, “Energizing Yourself-Through Off-Road Racing,” will both entertain and educate attendees. He will focus on his secrets of success and the many lessons he has learned during his four-decade career. Evans appears courtesy of Goodyear Tire and Rubber.
