MIAMI (Nov. 10, 2009)—Latin Expo Group Ltd., a trade group based in Panama, is organizing a tire exhibition and conference for Latin American and Caribbean tire distributors in Panama City, Panama, July 7-11, 2010.
The event, Latin American & Caribbean Tyre Expo 2010, will be held at Atlapa Convention Center in Panama City, according to the organizer.
Latin Expo is in the process of organizing a program of international tire industry speakers to accompany the exposition, according to a spokesman for the group, who said the group's vision “is to bring the global manufacturers and suppliers directly to the Latin markets and to get the Latin dealers to those manufacturers in a familiar and inexpensive venue.”
It is believed to be the first such exposition and conference of its kind.
The organizers said they chose Panama because it is an accessible destination for all tire distributors from North America, Central America, and South America, including Mexico and the Caribbean as well as an economical destination for Asian, North American, European and Latin tire and equipment manufacturers.
