Brityrex visitor numbers up 5 per cent
The organisers of Brityrex, ECI International, have thanked exhibitors and visitors for their role in the latest show held at EventCity, Manchester 9-11 October. According to the company, Brityrex visitor numbers increased 5 per cent compared to the 2010 exhibition, with footfall growing to 2435 visitors.
ECI managing director Paul Farrant says: “We were delighted with the positive feedback received from the show, particularly comments relating to the quality of visitors and the facilities at our new venue, EventCity. “We are very grateful for the support and backing of all our exhibitors and the many members of the UK and international trade that took the time to visit the show. With their continued encouragement and involvement we look forward to building on the success of Brityrex 2012 when the show returns to EventCity, Manchester in two years’ time.”

Commenting on the visitor figures Farrant says: “The fact that more people came to Brityrex this year is extremely encouraging, especially at a time when days spent away from the business have to be carefully considered. We are confident that the investment made by exhibitors will be rewarded by new business contacts, a better understanding of subjects like tyre labelling and TPMS legislation and the benefits of networking with like-minded professionals.”
Richard Edy, director of show sponsor the NTDA, commented: “Brityrex is a well-established focal point for the tyre industry and proved to be a real success for the association. The move to a new venue in EventCity worked extremely well and our annual dinner and TAFF Awards were a sell-out event, attracting over 500 guests and raising over £10,000 for BEN. We were delighted that the TyreTalk seminars, trialled for the first time at the show, proved to be so popular and well attended, which I’m sure will set a precedent for future events.”
Highlights included the display of several highly tyre label rated up and coming brands, tyre labelling software solution and TyreTalk seminars on a number of subjects including (of course) tyre labelling, TPMS and retreading.
