North American Tire & Retread Expo from New Orleans!

The first North American Tire & Retread Expo was held in New Orleans April 15-17, 2015. The show was a place "where we only talk tires and retreaded tires," said Gus Lima, the show's organizer.

Lima, CEO of both the Latin Expo Group LLC and Triangle Tire North America LLC, said he signed a contract to hold the event in New Orleans for the next five years.

2012 Goodyear dealer meeting in Orlando

Goodyear's "guest list" for its annual dealer conference was a who's who of industry leaders. Retailers, wholesale distributors, commercial dealers, mass merchandisers (yes, Sears Holdings Corp. was in Orlando, Fla., for the meeting) and others were on hand to hear what Goodyear had to say about 2012.

More on the floor: the 2011 SEMA Show in pictures!

For those of you who didn't attend the 2011 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas, Nev., in November, don't worry. Modern Tire Dealer was there.

In our December issue, we walk you through the show. Not literally, of course, but visually, thanks to the design of Art Director Neal Weingart.

Our magzine's six-page SEMA Show section is filled with pictures. Still, editors Bob Ulrich and Bob Bissler took more pictures than they were able to use.

Here, then, are more photos from the Global Tire Expo-Powered by TIA trade show floor, which was filled by 239 exhibitors.

Face-to-face time with SEMA Show attendees and exhibitors

On Day Three of the 2010 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show, there was still plenty to talk about -- and smile about.

Global Tire Expo exhibitors were located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, so that's where Modern Tire Dealer camped out. Here's a look at the people at work, or, in the case of Senior Editor Mike Manges, a two-dimensional replica.

The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) trade show floor also was busy during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week. New products were a given. So were some pretty spectacular booths.

Here's a look at Day One of the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show and Global Tire Expo -- Powered by TIA.

Signs of the times at the SEMA Show

Before the 2010 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show opened on Nov. 2, there were "signs" that the show was already underway.

There were signs outside the Las Vegas Convention Center. There was signage displayed on the Global Tire Expo trade show floor as the booths were being put together. There were even signs trumpeting the show at the airport.

Here is a first-day review of some of the signs in the Modern Tire Dealer Photo Gallery -- perhaps a sign of a successufl show?
