October’s Brityrex International ‘10 show in Manchester is a sell-out, with all exhibitor stands taken, according to organisers ECI International.

“I’m delighted to say we have a full house for the show with the last available stand space now sold,” confirmed ECI managing director Paul Farrant. “Not only will the show be around 20% bigger than the last staging in 2007, it will also offer a greater breadth, range and choice of products and services for tyre and equipment buyers.”

Among the final confirmations for the UK’s only independent tyre and equipment exhibition are tyre suppliers SD International and Gripen; retreader Marix UK; Ayce Systems, the automotive repair specialist; aircon supplier Autoclimate; Encircle Marketing; TEFORS; Banner Batteries; Strongman Tools and Straightset.

News that the show is fully-booked completes a double success for the event alongside a fully-subscribed NTDA Dinner and TAFF Awards, jointly sponsored by ECI, which will be held on the Wednesday of the show in the Hilton Deansgate hotel.

Brityrex will bring together tyre and equipment suppliers from around the world. British suppliers will be there in their dozens and will be joined by companies from Belgium, China, Germany, India, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Sweden and the United States.

Between the numerous tyre wholesalers (Kings Road Tyres, Kirkby Tyres, North West Tyre Traders, Treadsetters, Value Tyres, Daly Tyres) and international tyre manufacturers present at Brityrex (Uniroyal Truck Tyres, BKT, Stamford, Guizhou, Long March, Ningbo Junda, Omni, Nortenha, Shandong Wanda Boto and Techking) it will be possible to source dozens of different brands covering every conceivable tyre application from car to truck and van, off-road to agricultural, industrial to forestry equipment.

Many of these are well-known suppliers but there will also be new international manufacturers eager to establish distribution deals with UK based specialists.

The show will also showcase the very latest in workshop and tyrebay equipment and tools from a host of leading suppliers including Apaseal, Beissbarth, Bradbury Equipment, Butts of Bawtry, Clampco, DQN, Haweka, Hoffman MegaPlan, Majorlift Hydraulics, Norbar, Pro-Align, Rotary Lift, Snap-On Equipment, Supertracker and more.

Tyre Industry Federation members visiting the show and looking for a quiet space to talk business will be able to take advantage of meeting and refreshment facilities in a lounge area provided by exhibition sponsor the NTDA. The lounge can be used by TIF associates including tyre trade bodies the BTMA, ITMA, TRA, RMA and NTDA.

Summarising the exhibition, Paul Farrant says; “The breadth, range and diversity of exhibitors at this year’s show means that visitors will be able to meet potential new suppliers across almost every area of their business, from tyres and retreading to IT, recycling, tools, equipment and consumables. There is no other industry event which can offer so much in return for spending quality time over 3 days in the trade-only environment of Brityrex.”

Entry to Brityrex is free to bona fide trade visitors and advance registrations can be made to avoid waiting on the day at www.eci-international.com

The exhibition will take place October on 5, 6 and 7 at the refurbished Manchester Central convention centre, formerly known as G-Mex.
