The first edition of two-day TESS Conference which culminated recently in New Delhi focused sharply on technology, environment, safety and standards aspects in tyre sector.
Organized by Automotive Tyre Manufacturers’ Association (ATMA) on the occasion of golden jubilee of its technical wing Indian Tyre Technical Advisory Committee (ITTAC), the event was attended by over 350 participants from India and abroad.
In one of the biggest such gatherings, around 20 chosen international experts made presentations on topics ranging from tyre regulatory framework to standards implementation and environment conservation. An entire second day of the conference was focused on road safety where experts from Indian Institutes of Technology and leading research institutes participated.
Given India’s rising stature in the automobile ecosystem, delegations from European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA), European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO) and Japan Automobile Tire Manufacturers Association (JATMA) held parleys with their Indian counterparts on the sidelines of the conference with a view to share the agenda for international regulatory framework and the way ahead for sharing experiences, technologies and practices.
