Tyrexpo Africa Success
After more than a quarter of a century since the last tyre show in the country, the recent Tyrexpo Africa 2006 held in South Africa was a great success. Based at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, more than a hundred national and international exhibitors took part, including Michelin, Bandag and Vipal as well as many international wholesalers. The show’s floorspace was sold out. The organisers, ECI, were optimistic about the response to the show and said that the next step is to follow this exhibition with an even bigger event in 2008. The first comments from exhibitors sounded positive. The exact visitor statistics will be published later this week.
