NTDA to sponsor Brityrex 2009

Oct. 8, 2007

ECI International Ltd. has announced that the National Tyre Distributors Association (NTDA) has agreed to be the principal sponsor of Brityrex 2009, the UK's tire trade exhibition.

The show will run Sept. 22-24, 2009, at Manchester Central (G-Mex). NTDA also has scheduled its annual dinner and TAFF Awards presentation in conjunction with the event, on Sept. 23

Paul Farrant, managing director of ECI International, said, "The NTDA has been a valued partner and supporter of the exhibition in the past, and we are delighted they have agreed to become the major sponsor of the next show in 2009.

"Our ambition is to make Brityrex an event which is truly representative of all sectors of the UK tire industry. We know that the association holds the same view and will help us to realize that goal for 2009.

"We were delighted with the overall feedback we received from exhibitors and visitors at the 2007 event, and believe that we can continue to develop the show further in two years' time. Part of that development includes moving to a new slot in September, which we believe will benefit exhibitors and visitors by avoiding clashes with other exhibitions.”
