TIA Off-the-Road Tire Conference Key Calendar Event for Off-the-Road Industry Insiders

The event, which took place between February 23 and 26 and organised by the Tire Industry Association, brings the main news to the most diverse players in the off-road sector in the world, including end consumers, new tyre distributors and retreaders. This was the first OTR Conference since 2020.

Vipal was present at the conference with a stand, where it presented its solutions in compounds for the OTR tyre industry. “It was very important for us to participate in the event again, as it was a great opportunity for us to meet with customers and prospects after the break that took place in 2021.

In addition to the networking that the OTR Conference always promotes, it is a very special event in our calendar, because it represents a significant volume of sales and is also a significant part of our growth in the United States”, said Gabriel Fuma, Commercial Manager at Vipal NAFTA.

In addition to Fuma, the International Business Director of Vipal, Leandro Rigon, also participated in the OTR Conference, as did the NAFTA Regional Manager, Antonio Brito; the technical and commercial representative, Leonardo Oliveira; and the Commercial Manager of Mexico and Central America, Jean Barros.
