ECI Raises ‘Full house’ Sign As Tyrexpo Africa ’08 Sells Out
The ‘full house’ signs went up at Tyrexpo Africa ’08 this week as organisers of the international tyre and equipment show found room for a clutch of final exhibitors for the 4-6 March event in Johannesburg’s Sandton Convention Centre. Selling all of the available stand space means that the show will offer visitors around eight per cent more companies to talk to (over 100 in total) and 10 per cent more floor space to cover, compared to the inaugural show back in 2006. More than 20 different countries will be represented at the international gathering, with southern African, Chinese and Indian suppliers providing the largest numbers of exhibitors.
Healthy visitor pre-registration figures from overseas delegates will be welcomed by exhibitors and boosted still further in the run-up to the show by local dealers attending the RMI conference, staged to coincide with the event. Interest is also strong in neighbouring Namibia, where members of the Motor Industries Federation of Namibia are being offered a tour package based on the exhibition by a leading local travel operator.
