We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to tyre trade exhibitions, and therefore the organisers behind these shows must compete to convince the industry that theirs is the one to visit. Tyrepress.com recently attended Tyrexpo Asia, and spoke with project director Andrew Tan about what he and his team have planned for the fair and for the Tyrexpo franchise in order to set it apart from the rest.
This is World Rubber Week, and one of three key events taking place as part of the week is Tyrexpo Asia. The Singapore-based tyre trade exhibition opened this morning, and welcoming exhibitors and visitors to the 11th edition of Tyrexpo Asia, project director Andrew Tan expressed the expectation that the show would be attended by “close to 5,000 tyre industry professionals from around the region.” More than 250 firms from over 20 countries are also exhibiting at Tyrexpo 2017, he added.

The organiser of Brityrex International 2014, SingEx-ECI International, said that it will seek to take the show “to the next level” following feedback from the 2014 edition of the show.
