Tyres & Accessories July 2010
The July 2010 edition of Tyres & Accessories magazine is now available online and is viewable as a virtual flash “e-magazine” to all subscribers. This latest issue focuses on the highlights of the recent Reifen 2010 show in Essen and – excuse the pun – giant OTR/Earthmover tyre business. Click more to have a look.
Between June 1 and 4, more than 18,000 trade visitors from 127 nations attended the Reifen 2010 show in the German city of Essen. There they were treated to the wares of over 600 exhibitors from 42 countries – more than ever before. Following the show exhibition sponsor, Germany’s BRV (Federal Association of the Tyre Trade and the Vulcanisers’ Skilled Trade), commented “we have highlighted our position as the leading international event in the sector.” And this is certainly an impression that many took away from Reifen 2010.
Not only did many in attendance comment that this year’s show exceeded their expectations both in terms of visitor quantity and quality, BRV executive chairman Peter Hülzer noted “the exhibitors registered a lot of incoming orders. At both national and international levels, the visitors were busy placing orders. I have never experienced such a good mood here. From Essen, very positive signals for our sector are being sent all over the world.”
As expected, Tyres & Accessories was in attendance, speaking with participants and soaking up the Reifen atmosphere. July presents our review of this immense and popular show.
This month Tyres & Accessories reviews the industrial tyre segment. In July, we’re taking things outdoors with our earthmover/OTR feature. These large and robust tyres are – please forgive the weak pun – our quarry this month.
