Airp celebrates 50th Assembly in Bologna
Even though the Association hasn’t quite reached its half-century milestone, Airp was in fact founded on 21 September 1963, the 50th Assembly will be a very important appointment in any case.
To celebrate it on 5 and 6 October, the Executive Council has again chosen Bologna and the prestigious backdrop of the Hotel “I portici”. As is customary in even years, the board will also be re-elected. The economic situation at this time is a particularly complicated one, even if retreads are responding to the crisis in the road transport sector with better numbers than new tyres. For some years now it has been our custom to invite a manufacturer to present its vision of the sector and this year our guest will be Michelin. We will also report on lobbying activities, talk about initiatives aimed at preventing VAT evasion, and about the contribution the sector can make to reducing CO2 emissions.
Another interesting subject that will be discussed is the report on research by Bipaver, the international “board” of retreaders’ associations, into a form of labelling also for retreads. As usual, it will be two days of “full immersion” in sector-related subjects.
