Tyrexpo UK organisers Singex have decided to cancel this year’s event due to the “current uncertain climate”. The announcement was made in a letter to partners – including Tyres & Accessories – which expressed the company’s disappointment and apologies that this decision was necessary.
It is now just over four months (19 weeks) until the UK tyre and automotive/garage market sectors has its own dedicated trade show once again and – according to the show’s organisers, SingEx Exhibitions – the interest from potential exhibitors and visitors continues to gather momentum.
Andrew Tan has announced his upcoming departure from SingEx Exhibitions, the company behind the Tyrexpo series of trade fairs. The project director for SingEx Exhibitions’ Automotive & Commodities Cluster will leave SingEx at the end of this week.
Tyrexpo UK 2017 will be staged in Hall 7 of the NEC in Birmingham between 4 and 5 October, with around 3,500 square metres of floor-space. Hosted by SingEx Exhibitions of Singapore, it becomes the latest show to form part of the firm’s event portfolio of tyre and automotive related exhibitions. SingEx currently stages ongoing bi-annual tyre shows in Singapore and Johannesburg, South Africa along with yearly events in India (Delhi and Chennai) and the company is now turning its attention on the UK market.
