Of course, the earlier shows (including the first edition of Tire+) were held in Shanghai. This time, the 2018 event saw the Tire+ exhibition move to Guangzhou. According to the organisers the goal of the exhibition was “not only to continue the mature model of 2017, but also leverage the resources of the exhibition”. In practice this means leveraging the show’s ability to operate in both the business-to-business and business-to-consumer realms, specifically “the automobile industry chain, which is suitable for the post-automobile market consumption upgrade and individualized demand” as well as “tyres and aftermarket enterprises”.
The inaugural Tire+ exhibition made its debut in Shanghai today. Beginning with an opening parade of the CEOs of the top 12 Chinese tyre manufacturers, which was covered by national broadcaster CCTV, organisers CURC have taken steps to reflect the Chinese tyre industry’s increasing focus on quality. It also means large and professional stands from many of the biggest firms in the business including: ZC Rubber, Linglong, Sailun Jinyu, Doublestar, Triangle, Double Coin, Aeolus, Prinx Chengshan and Guizhou/Advance Tyre – to name just a few. This is all supplemented by an impressive number of forum discussions and four halls of tyre and rubber manufacturing stands in the RubberTech exhibition next door.
From 20 to 22 September 2017 China Rubber Industry Association (CRIA) and China United Rubber Corporation (CURC) will jointly host the new Tire+ tyre trade show at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. The Tire+ expo will be held alongside the 17th China RubberTech. According to the organisers the new show features six particular highlights, but first – before take a closer look at those – here’s a little background.
In order to give an impression of the kind of clientele Tire+ is attracting, it worth looking a little closer at the show’s exhibitor list. With this in mind here are 12 of the biggest tyre manufacturers exhibiting at the events inaugural show:
When Reifen China 2016 opened the doors of the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre on the 1 December, it was immediately apparent that several significant changes are afoot in the Chinese tyre show sector. As the name suggests, Reifen China has always been organised by Messe Essen in partnership with China United Rubber Company (CURC) and co-located with CURC’s always-well-attended RubberTech. But next year that will change and the Reifen name has been licensed to Messe Frankfurt for use alongside its Automechanika Shanghai show. This move, which began as a ripple-effect emanating from the Reifen versus The Tire, Cologne competition that has been going on in Germany, has caused repercussions as far away as China. As a result CURC (the exhibition firm behind RubberTech and Messe Essen/Reifen China’s former partner) will also be launching a new tyre event in 2017.
Reifen China originated from Reifen in Essen, Germany, which has been running every two years since 1960. Reifen show is the largest professional tire fair in the world today after going through half a century of continuous development. In 2007, the Asian Essen Tire Show was officially launched in China through the cooperation of China […]

Having made its debut in 2014, Messe Essen and the Chinese United Rubber Corporation (CURC) have extended the contract for Rubber Tech Europe up to and including 2020. Rubber Tech China, the Asian predecessor to Rubber Tech Europe, has been held annually alongside Reifen China since 2007, with the former taking three halls at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre to the latter’s one. The new agreement will give Rubber Tech Europe, which started with a space in hall six in Essen’s Reifen 2014, the chance to develop into a more substantial component of the biannual event, with the backing from Messe Essen for the next three Reifen shows. The show within a show is one part of Messe Essen’s strategy to centralise international partnerships within its tyre show operations ahead of the BRV-backed The Tire Cologne show, to be held at Koelnmesse in 2018. The company has also developed links with global aftermarket series, Automechanika.
As the Chinese government announced the modernization of its governance system – including further acknowledge of the role market forces play in its development – the minister responsible for the tyre industry joined other dignitaries in opening Reifen China 2013 in Shanghai today.
