The Clemson University Tire Conference was developed in 1985 by Clemson University as a conference hosted by the professors of the School of Textiles. This continued educational program was mostly based on the manufacturing of tire cords for vehicle tires. It grew into a two day conference with tire experts giving presentations on the ever-changing facets of the tire industry and the resultant consequences to the tire and automotive manufacturers and consumers.
Today, the conference has grown and expanded to reach a world-wide audience. Whether it is in the field of tire design, research, or manufacturing, this conference represents many allied industries. During our three day conference, expert representatives from the primary tire manufacturing industry, academia, government, explore current tire and vehicle topics that have profound effects on tire business and technology.
In light of the tremendous growth in the tire industry, the Clemson University Tire Conference hosts a global audience, which includes attendees from North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The Tire Conference will continue to present the latest in manufacturing technologies, product standards, regulatory issues, automotive trends and financial forecasts.
