Next year’s Brityrex International exhibition (1-3 May 2007) will be breaking new ground, as the show will be taking place for the first time at the G-MEX Convention Centre in Manchester. The show is being supported by the NTDA, who have arranged their AGM and Annual Dinner for 2 May, to be held at the Palace Hotel. In mid-July, the NTDA held an Executive Council Meeting at the hotel and got together with ECI International, the organisers of Brityrex, and members of the press to arrange a familiarisation day.
Over 1OOO trade visitors poured through the doors of the Singapore Expo Centre on Tuesday as Tyrexpo Asia got underway. The first day of the exhibition saw the highest single visitor figures in the event’s history.
Organisers, ECI international commented: “We have been delighted with the excellent turnout today. The exhibition floor has been very busy and exhibitors have expressed satisfaction with the quality of visitors attending the show. We have already had a number of rebookings for the next Tyrexpo Asia in two years time”.
ECI International, organisers of the Brityrex International exhibition, have announced that the 2007 event will be held from 1 to 3 May at the G-Mex Convention Centre, Manchester.
Paul Farrant, ECI’s managing director, revealed that there were a number of reasons for the move. “We wanted to expand the floor space available in 2007 based on the success and re-bookings taken at the 2005 show and Harrogate were unable to give us the third hall we needed to grow the show.”
“Today southeast Asia and China host some of the fastest growing markets in the world. So having a tyre exhibition in Singapore is an ideal combination,” says Klaus Haddenbrock.
The publisher and chief editor of Tyres & Accessories, and its German sister magazine Neue Reifenzeitung, is confident that this year’s Tyrexpo Asia will be a complete success and the number of exhibitors and visitors will increase strongly.
For him the region is much more than just a “cheap production platform” and the tyre business will continue to be bullish in the future. “Its not only Western manufacturers that are looking for new markets in which to sell their products, so do their Eastern counterparts,” he adds.
The 2005 show will be the fifth time Tyres & Accessories has supported Tyrexpo Asia. Once again, T&A is the show’s exclusive European media partner. Organised by East Sussex-based ECI International, Tyrexpo Asia will be held at the Singapore Expo Centre from 13 – 15 September 2005. T&A will be on stand H 14.
This month sees the much-anticipated return of Brityrex. After an eight year absence the show is returning to Harrogate as Brityrex International and the organisers, ECI International, are determined to deliver exactly what they promised from the beginning – an exhibition dedicated to the tyre and related industries. As sponsor of the event Tyres & Accessories will provide an in depth report on the new show and assessment of the products on show.
After an absence of four years, the UK tyre industry was once again treated to its own, dedicated exhibition when Brityrex International was held in May at the Harrogate International Centre.
The show consisted of more than 70 exhibitors from all sectors of the industry and, over the three days of the show, 2,495 visitors came through the doors. Paul Farrant, Managing Director of organisers ECI International, was delighted with the reactions from visitors and exhibitors, with many of the latter booking space for the 2007 show on the spot.
A common theme in the feedback from exhibitors was the quality of the visitors, with many selling machinery off the stand (in one case, every piece of machinery on the stand was sold during the show) and others reporting lists of genuine enquiries to be followed up.
“This exhibition definitely showed that there is a need for a tyre industry, trade-only event,” he said, “and I see it as the springboard for future shows.” As a mark of their confidence, ECI have booked a third hall for the 2007 show, giving another 1,000 square metres of stand space.
“I would like to thank all the exhibitors for their efforts and I am very pleased that their hard work was rewarded by visitors who were obviously at Brityrex International to do some serious business.” Paul Farrant said, adding: “Hopefully those companies which were sitting on the fence this time will have seen the quality of the show and will lend their support for the 2007 exhibition.”
The exact dates for Brityrex International 2007 will be announced later this week and the show will be officially launched at the Tyrexpo Asia show in Singapore this September. Exhibitors wanting to reserve specific stand locations are advised to book early.
The Organisers of Tyrexpo Asia, ECI International Ltd., have announced new dates of 17 to 19 February 2004 for the fourth in the series of Tyrexpo Asia events. Paul Farrant, Managing Director of ECI International, confirms, together with the support of the industry, that it is in the interests of exhibitors and visitors to re-schedule Tyrexpo Asia from its original dates in September 2003 to the new dates of 17 to 19 February, 2004. It is believed that the current situation relating to the SARS virus could unduly affect the success of Tyrexpo Asia. By moving the dates to February 2004 it is anticipated that governmental travel restrictions will be significantly diminished and confidence in international travel fully restored.
ECI International Ltd., the company which purchased the rights to the Tyrexpo Asia show, has announced that the exhibition will next be held at the newly-built Singapore Expo Centre from 11-13 September 2001. TYRES & ACCESSORIES will be a sponsor of the event.
