"GLOBAL RETREADING CONFERENCE" as part of THE TIRE COLOGNE 2022

Opening GRC 2018

The "Global Retreading Conference" (GRC) had a very successful start at the leading global industry trade fair "The Tire Cologne 2018".

After the corona-related cancellation of the follow-up trade fairs, the European retreading association BIPAVER in cooperation with Koelnmesse would like to make the next GRC again what it already was in 2018: An international industry event for the retreading sector, offering a global platform for exchanging views on relevant topics. The leading trade fair for the tire industry, "THE TIRE COLOGNE" (24-26 May 2022) in Cologne, Germany, provides the ideal framework event for this.

The GRC 2018 already showed, through a variety of topics and speakers from all over the world, that the GRC motto "Bringing the retreading world together" was rightly chosen. Ten speakers from seven countries and four continents ensured a successful event.
