NEW ORLEANS—Organizers of the Latin American & Caribbean Tyre Expo are planning to bring their franchise to the U.S. with the World Tire & Retread Expo, scheduled for April 15-17, 2015, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
In literature announcing the show, World Tire Expo states: “North America … is the largest tire market in the world, and we tire industry professionals do not have our own exclusive tire expo.”
The literature does not specifically reference other industry trade shows, such as the Specialty Equipment Market Association/Tire Industry Expo held annually in Las Vegas, the International Tire Exhibition & Conference—Tire Dealers/Auto Service scheduled for Aug. 20-22 in Orlando, Fla., or the Automechanika Chicago, scheduled for Chicago April 24-26, 2015.
“Now at the World Tire & Retread Expo, we finally have our own tire and retread expo, a place where we can all talk tires and only tires,” World Tire Expo said. Our goal is to bring together tire and retread business professionals together so that they can buy and sell to each other without any distractions.”
The World Tire Expo organizers have set up a dedicated website for inquiries. The site is available here.
