OTR Conference to Feature Cat® Equipment Demo

Bowie, Md. - TIA is pleased to announce that it has added a Cat® Equipment Demonstration to its program for the 2015 OTR Conference which will be held February 18-21, 2015 at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona. The Cat Equipment Demo will take place on Friday, February 20 at the company’s Tinaja Hills Demonstration and Learning Center, a 6,500 acre facility nestled in the Sonoran desert in Green Valley, Arizona. In order to accommodate the Demo, TIA has released a revised schedule for the program. 

The full product line general demonstration will feature Cat machines from the smallest skid steer loader to the larger mining machines.  During the show, these machines will simulate many common industry applications such as construction and mining.  After the demonstration, attendees will have the opportunity to take photos and get up-close and personal with all the equipment -- short of turning the key.

 “We are thrilled that Caterpillar has offered this tremendous and unique opportunity for our delegates to visit their first-class facility and see their equipment up-close and in-action,” said TIA Executive Director Roy Littlefield.

All OTR Conference delegates and their registered guests are invited to attend. Persons interested in attending the OTR Conference can find information and a registration form at www.tireindustry.org/2015-otr-conference. Those who have already registered for the conference will be receiving registration information for the Cat® Equipment Demo via email in the next week.
