With Autopromotec kicking off in just a few weeks, the organizers of the most specialized international exhibition of automotive equipment and aftermarket products (Bologna, Italy, May 20-24, 2015) confirm the success recorded in the halls devoted to tires and tire equipment.
The recent changes in the regulatory framework, in particular the introduction of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), have provided positive input for the tire industry, and all exhibitors will be displaying interesting innovations in terms of products, as well as diagnostic and programming tools. As proof of the great excitement about this sector, the halls devoted to tires and tire equipment were the first to sell out despite widening: hall 31, part of hall 15 and external area 42 were thus added to the halls originally intended for tires, i.e. halls 19, 20 and 22.
Once again, Autopromotec proves to be the international landmark event for the tire industry. In Bologna, visitors will be able to meet the world’s leading tire companies and tire equipment manufacturers, as well as retread professionals: from manufacturers of retreaded tires, retreading equipment, materials and products to waste tire operators. Autopromotec 2015 will also host two important international events for the tire retreading industry: the BIPAVER (European Retread Manufacturers Association) General Assembly on May 21, and a presentation of ALARNEU (Latin-American Retread Manufacturers Association), during which the current situation of the Latin-American tire industry will be analyzed and strategies to cope with change in market trends will be delved into.
