PANAMA CITY, Panama — They are talking tires — as well as automotive service parts — in Panama for the first time since 2019.
The Latin American & Caribbean Tyre and Latin Auto Parts Expo are being held concurrently in Panama City, four years after the last expo was held. The show was canceled the last three years by the pandemic.
The show is being held June 14-16 at the new Panama Convention Center. The show is the largest tire and auto show held at the venue.
More than 500 exhibitors from across the globe are attending the show. More than 4,000 buyers, representing more than 30 countries, were expected to walk the venue.
According to Linda Bassitt, senior event director for the Latin Expo Group L.L.C., exhibitors "were filled with positive reviews of buyers and meeting with new and old customers. Buyers were impressed with the new facility and how many products and companies were present."
