Although Tyrexpo Africa 2014 is still eight months away, exhibitor demand continues to be intense, with 80 percent of the exhibition space already taken. Event organiser ECI International is confident of a sell-out event, at the Sandton Convention Centre, come show time next March.
So a myriad of African and international exhibitors are joining the party, which will open up major new business opportunities to industry visitors during the three-day exhibition.
But it won’t only be the visitors who benefit from the show, as African-based exporters can strut their stuff to an international crowd. Visitors are expected to come from more than 42 countries – representing all the major tyre and equipment buying markets and economies.
And importers seeking new suppliers and distribution agreements with overseas manufacturers, keen on establishing a presence in southern Africa’s tyre markets, will also reap benefits.
“There is no other single trade event that can offer the southern African tyre and equipment industry the chance to meet so many buyers and deal-makers in a single venue,” says managing director of ECI International, Paul Farrant.
Keeping up with the healthy demand for show access, ECI International will open its online visitor pre-registration system in September. The simple click-through process guarantees easy entry, without having to complete any paperwork on the day.
