National Tyre Distributors Association (NTDA) Director Stefan Hay says that next month’s Brityrex International exhibition in Manchester will be the business and social high point of the UK tyre industry calendar for 2014.
The biennial, three-day show is the only dedicated trade-only exhibition that brings together a host of UK and international suppliers of tyres, garage equipment, tools, consumables, IT and training services.
“Brityrex International is a fantastic opportunity for the trade to spend time meeting suppliers and talking to people and organisations that can help to improve their businesses”, says Stefan Hay. “As the show only takes place every two years, it really is an opportunity not to be missed by any forward-thinking retailer, manufacturer, distributor or service provider. I know my members are looking forward to it and I encourage everyone involved in the trade to get behind the UK’s premier tyre event.”
As principal sponsor, the association will be leveraging on the opportunity to highlight its own member services, as part of a recruitment campaign that has seen numbers of new retailers and supplier members join in recent months.
The NTDA is also responsible for the organisation of the popular TyreTalk programme of free technical seminars that will run on the first and second days of the show. Seven presentations from a panel of expert speakers will cover a range of highly topical subjects including EU Tyre Labelling, Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems, the MoT, Tyre Measurement and campaigns on illegal waste tyre dumping, over-aged tyres and part-worn tyres.
The social highlight of Brityrex will be the sell-out NTDA Annual Dinner featuring the revamped Tyre Industry Awards, presented by former MP and Government Minister Michael Portillo. The dinner will be held in the Hilton Deansgate Hotel and has already attracted over 530 guests.
To avoid queuing on the day of their visit, Brityrex International delegates can now pre-register online at www.eci-international.com. Entry to Brityrex International and the TyreTalk seminars at EventCity is free to bona fide members of the trade.
