From 29 May to 1 June 2018, 533 exhibitors – including the 20 companies with the highest turnover in the industry – and more than 16,000 trade visitors from 113 countries experienced the leading trade fair for the tire industry.

Hands on: Tire service for commercial vehicles

At THE TIRE COLOGNE you will experience what moves the industry: from megatrend digitisation to the latest technologies for tyre recycling. Our Digital Reality, Recycling Forum and Fleet Lounge theme areas make the leading trade fair for the tire industry a complete success. Practice is not neglected either: You can find out everything about the handling of commercial vehicle tyres in the special tyre service section.
