Posted on July 13, 2017

There was plenty of buzz on the first day of the Tyrexpo India and GarageXpo Asia shows, which were held concurrently July 11-13, 2017, at the Chennai Trade Centre. The co-hosts welcomed regional industry players to India's leading platform for all things related to tires and automotive service.

At the opening ceremony, Baldeep Singh, head of Indian-based SingEx Exhibitions, shared his tire and automotive aftermarket forecast with attendees. He also was on hand for the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between SingEx Exhibitions and the China United Rubber Corp. (CURC); the two companies will officiate the co-location of RubberTech, a leading international exhibition on rubber technology in China, with Tyrexpo 2018 in both India and Africa.

The fifth Tyrexpo Asia and GarageXpo Asia shows began on July 11.
