Just over a year after Singapore exhibition firm Singex bought ECI, the new combined entity (SingEx-ECI) has shared details of what promises to be a fully pumped-up show. Perhaps the biggest headline is that Brityrex now has the involvement of two premium tyre manufacturers in Pirelli (new this year) and Michelin’s training centre (which returns to the show). 2014’s show will be the first time in decades that two world-leading manufacturers have exhibited at a dedicated UK tyre show. In addition there are dozens of other fascinating exhibitors and a superb line-up speakers at the Tyre Talk seminar series that runs throughout the show.

Kings Road Tyres was appointed as the exclusive distributor of Aeolus passenger car tyres at the beginning of 2014, and the company has announced the launch of this venture as a focal point of its Brityrex International 2014 activity, presented on its own stand. Primarily known as a distributor of commercial and agricultural tyres, KRT plans to get behind its new PCR product range with a package for retailers, called the Aeolus Valued Partner scheme.

Pirelli has become the first premium brand tyre manufacturer to confirm that it will exhibit at Brityrex International. Pirelli’s direct involvement represents a something of a coup for the British tyre market show, taking place at EventCity, Manchester on 7-9 October.
