At last count, around 600 companies and brands were signed up as exhibitors at the inaugural The Tire Cologne, with many poised to unveil their latest products and innovations at the show. This meeting of the tyre world’s ‘Who’s Who’ is of course too good an opportunity for Tyres & Accessories/Tyrepress.com to miss, and our team will be present and reporting the latest news from the fair. We’ll also be there as an exhibitor in our own right together with our international partner titles, and we welcome visitors to pay us a visit.
