Rasey said, “Continental takes great pride in attending the TIA Off-the-Road Tire Conference. Not only is it the longest continuously running TIA event, but it’s the best, most professional industry forum for the OTR business anywhere in the world. The networking for dealers, and the opportunity to exchange ideas in a single setting is unrivaled.”
