A new era in growth and style for Tyrexpo Africa claims Singex

Aloyius Arlando CEO SingexThe Tyrexpo Africa 2014 Show in Johannesburg last week was not only another successful event for the Southern African tyre market but also represented the beginning of a new direction in the show's management.

Previous bi-annual events have been promoted by UK based ECI International but the latest exhibition was hosted by Singapore based Exhibition and Events Management Specialists – Singex.

Having taken a controlling stake in the business in 2013, this year's Tyrexpo Africa Show was the first event that Singex had exclusively handled and SA Treads exclusively interviewed Mr Aloysius Arlando – Chief Executive Officer of Singex during the event to discover more about the company and its intentions and aspirations for the future of the Tyrexpo Exhibitions and in particular – Tyrexpo Africa.

Singex is a wholly owned subsidiary of Temasek Holdings which is one of Singapore Government's Investment Arm but operates completely independently, specialising in the investment and ongoing growth of trade events. Mr Arlando explained that Singex's main business objective was in Trade Show Development plus they managed Singapore's largest Expo Centre encompassing 123,000 sqm.

He said: "Singex used their high profile presence at Tyrexpo Africa to extensively monitor how such an important international tyre event operates in this period of 'transition' between ownership. It is our firm intention to build on the solid concept of the shows built up by ECI International and further broaden the horizons of such events.

"At the moment there are a number of possible developments under our consideration including expanding the exhibitions beyond just the tyre industry and including the rubber market as well, however, any new developments will be carried out without compromising the existing 'community atmosphere' of the shows." Another area of expansion being considered would involve increasing the overall size of each event and including the introduction of boutique/hybrid style stands for each event."

When asked by SA Treads if there were any plans to expand the Tyrexpo concept into other countries and Continents, Mr Arlando explained that Singex fully intends to look at eventually expanding into other regions including the Middle East and South America, and possibly even Southern Africa, if the right venue and market opportunities were to arise. However for the immediate future the company will be concentrating on evaluating and enhancing its existing events in Africa, Asia, India and the UK.

Finally when asked for an opinion on last week's Tyrexpo Africa show, Mr Arlando stated, "The event has proved to be a very interesting and successful learning curve for me and all the Singex team and extremely valuable for our future plans to take the Tyrexpo events to an even greater platform on a global basis through a very structured dimension for growth and success."
