The Irish tyre trade were out in force at Autopromotec, the international trade fair, in Bologna last week, writes Padraic Deane.

Autopromotec 2013 was an extremely vibrant affair, with a record-breaking number of exhibitors and the largest exhibition space ever, respectively: 1,512 exhibitors from 52 countries covering a total exhibition area of 156,000 square metres (20,000 of which outdoors).

Autopromotec 2013 reconfirmed itself as an important global meeting point for all sector operators including the tyre trade.

The Irish Tyre Industry Association  hosted a lunchtime reception for all Irish visitors attending Autopromotec on Thursday May 23.
