2010 Forum Day – bigger and better than ever

April 15, 2010

This year's annual TRA Forum Day will take place on Friday 9th July at a familiar venue, the St John's Hotel, Solihull.

Bigger and better than ever, this year's event is adding a morning Workshop dedicated to introducing tyre retailers to the opportunities offered by the industry's Responsible Recycler Scheme. The Workshop will preceed the established ‘Forum' programme which will follow in the afternoon and the TRA will this year organise its own Tyre Industry Dinner and Cabaret for the evening.

The TRA Forum Day has become an important annual event for Britain's tyre recovery business attracting large numbers of participants not only from the wider tyre industry itself but from many in Government, Regulation and Enforcement.

The theme of the 2010 event will be ‘Regulation and Opportunity' and will consider the many regulatory challenges and infrastructure threats we presently face. A preview programme is already available and the full speaker line-up will be published shortly.
