Record Exhibitor Numbers at Tyrexpo Asia’07
Russia’s Alimark Ltd has become the 140th exhibitor to sign up for September’s TyrexpoAsia exhibition in Singapore, breaking all records for the show as it approaches its 10th anniversary. One of Tyrexpo Asia’s strengths has always been the diversity of its exhibitor base.
2007 will be the biggest and most international to date with over 140 exhibitors representing 24 different countries covering an area of approximately 6000 square metres. Amongst these are the major players in the tyre industry offering the widest range of products and services available in the industry.
There are many exhibitors making repeat appearances at Tyrexpo Asia’07, but equally there are many first-time attendees. Of particular interest this year is the participation of over 35 Chinese exhibitors to the show to date, confirming the importance and value the exhibition has to a wider international market.
Since China’s Techking Tires became the 100th company to register as an exhibitor in May, more than 40 tyre and equipment specialists have joined them, pushing up floor space to over 6000 square metres. Amongst the latest exhibitors are: Alimark, Agarwal, Austyre, Cincinnati Retread Systems, Crown Tyre, Far East Rubber Trading, Fenix, Gaither Tool Co, Heuver Banden, Heyi Commerce & Trade, Koprulu, Nexen, Protector Tyres, Qingdao Quizhou Rubber, Sin Hon Hwa, Sobati Tyres, Starco Europe, Top Alloy Manufacturing, Treadsetters, Tyretred, VMI-AZ Extrusion, World Dynamics Int.
