Around 120 Exhibitors Will Present Their Innovations in Shanghai
This year, the leading trade fair for the Asian tyre market, Reifen China, will be open in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre on December 3 - 5, 2014. On the occasion of the eighth edition of the international meeting place for the sector, Messe Essen and the China United Rubber Corporation (CURC) are expecting around 120 exhibitors from numerous nations. Rubber Tech China which will relate to the stage before tyre production and will feature around 500 exhibitors will once again run parallel to Reifen China. Together, both events will cover the complete value added chain of the tyre: from raw material processing via manufacture and trading right up to recycling. The organisers are expecting a total of around 15,000 visitors to both trade fairs.
Reifen China will be a manufacturers' fair: Around 45 percent of the exhibitors will originate from the producing industries, including the 15 largest tyre manufacturers in China, e.g. Double Coin Holdings, Shandong Linglong Tyre or the China National Tire & Rubber Corporation with the Aeolus brand. The tyre trade will account for around 30 percent of the exhibitors. Moreover, the range on offer at the fair will encompass, amongst other products and services, those for everything to do with tyre accessories, retreading and repair. In the accompanying China Forum, international speakers will once again examine topical subjects in the worldwide tyre and rubber sectors.
