Brisbane, Australia -- A conference about off-road and mining tyres opens next week in Brisbane, Australia. The event, the fourth in a series, is organised by Informa takes place in the Novotel in Brisbane from 17 - 18 October.
The organisers say, "During the last mining boom the shortage of mining tyres left mining companies around the globe struggling to get tyres. The severe shortage led to a secondary market for tyres, new and secondhand plus retreads and prices for both skyrocketed. New mines and massive mine expansions have ensured demand for OTR tyres is once again outstripping supply."
The add, "This established event is a key forum for mining companies and tyre manufacturers and suppliers to come together and strategise the best way forward to maximise efficiency, tyre life and costs."
