Retreading Conference Announced for Bologna Show

The announcement follows the successful first edition of the specialist conference for the tyre retreading industry, held during the last Autopromotec show in 2019.

The main topic for the conference will be “Retreading in the Circular Economy” and will feature six key speakers who will focus on the issue of how the retreading industry can leverage its position as a green industrial process and promote its role as a key contributor to the Circular Economy. Full details of speakers and topics will be released in due course.

The conference, entry to which will be free of charge to visitors at Autopromotec, will also be streamed live around the world to retreaders and other interested parties.

The half-day event will be followed immediately by the Awards ceremony for the Recircle Awards, the industry awards event recognising sustainable innovation, production processes, management and services within the tyre retreading and recycling industries.

David Wilson, Publisher of Retreading Business commented; “The role of retreading in the Circular Economy is becoming increasingly important and signals a way forward for the future of the industry. We are delighted to be able to present this conference, which will focus on how retreaders can take full advantage of the opportunities that increased environmental awareness will bring.”

Renzo Servadei, CEO of Autopromotec added; “Autopromotec has always been a leading supporter of the tyre retreading sector, and we are convinced that the Future of Retreading Conference will be a key contributor towards helping cement Autopromotec’s status as the key event for the global retreading industry in 2022.”
