Tyres Red Hot Topic at Upcoming SEMA/GTE Shows
SEMA says that tyres are a hot topic among those planning to attend the upcoming 2010 SEMA Show and Global Tire Expo, according to Tire Review. In all, more than 9,000 attendees are specifically interested in tyres and tyre-related products. Among that group, SEMA said, more than 3,000 attendees specifically identified themselves as “tyre buyers.” The 2010 SEMA Show and GTE will be held 2-5 November at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
For 2010, SEMA and TIA created the GTE, which is open to all segments of the tyre industry, including consumer and commercial tyres, retreading, recycling and more. More than 230 companies plan to exhibit at the GTE, including more than 20 first-time exhibitirs.
The GTE will also include expanded educational session tracks targeted to the tyre market. The tracks are TPMS at 10, Tyres at 2, Truck Tyres at 10 and Management at 4. Every day, each track will feature a session relevant to tyre dealers and led by knowledgeable experts in the tyre industry. The educational sessions will be located in the Skybridge between the Central and South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
