Extra Edition of Tire Cologne Cancelled

Koelnmesse, the Tire Cologne fair's organiser, cancelled the extra edition of the Tire Cologne 2021, which it had rescheduled to May this year, due to challenges involved in carrying out trade fair events and the continuing travel restrictions because of the corona pandemic.

The regular edition will now take place between 24 and 26 May 2022, for which sales have been started.

"Koelnmesse and the Bundesverband Reifenhandel und Vulkaniseur-Handwerk e.V. (BRV/German Tire Retailers and Vulcanisation Trade Association) as the industry sponsor have intensively followed the development of the pandemic and the current political measures, and analysed the potential consequences for the trade fair circumstances of all participants. Unfortunately, there has not been a significant improvement in the situation in Germany, Europe and the whole world, as had been hoped. As a consequence of the current situation, The Tire Cologne extra edition in May will be cancelled and we will return to the cyclical even rhythm", Oliver Frese, Managing Director of Koelnmesse, explains.

Yorick M. Lowin, Managing Director of the BRV, also adds: "Together we are now focusing our attention on the event in the coming year, in order to again position The Tire Cologne as the leading global industry trade fair."
