FULLERTON, CA (March 21, 2011) – Yokohama Tire Corporation will be exhibiting the latest of its OTR and commercial truck tires at the upcoming March 22-26 ConExpo in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be giving away an iPad a day for five days at its booth N-1257.

“People go to Las Vegas to win, so we’re trying to help make that come true,” said Gary Nash, Yokohama vice president, OTR Sales. “A lucky ConExpo attendee will win an iPad every day. All they have to do is stop by our booth and register. It’s that easy.”

Nash said a name will be drawn each night for the iPad but the winners do not need to be present at the booth. “If they can’t be there, we will contact the lucky winners after the show and ship them their new iPad.”
