The ninth annual Latin Tyre Expo showcased nearly 200 international tire and retread manufacturers and distributors who met and connected with buyers over the course of the three-day event.
Exhibitors presented a wide array of products from new and used tires, tire equipment, repair products, retreading products and wheels. Companies from the U.S., Europe, Asia and Latin America exhibited. Buyers from Latin America were very pleased at the opportunities that the expo afforded them in Panama, the show organizers note. Supporting the retread industry was a key factor for the expo and several companies and associations participated.
Technical conferences included presentations from the Tire Industry Association by Kevin Rohlwing, senior vice president of training; David Shaw, head of research for the Tire Industry Research (UK); and other industry leaders. “For companies looking to expand or grow their markets in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Latin Tyre Expo in Panama should be a part of their show calendar,” say show organizers.
Booth reservations and information on next year’s show (10th edition) will be released soon.
