Due to construction delays at the new Amador Convention Center, the 2019 Latin Tyre Expo and the Latin Auto Parts Expo in Panama will once again be hosted at the Atlapa Convention Center.
As in past editions, the Latin Tyre Expo will showcase more than 200 exhibitors, and more than 300 exhibitors will be featured in the Latin Auto Parts Expo. Thousands of buyers from Latin America and the Caribbean attend both shows annually. The expo agenda includes educational presentations from industry leaders both from the tire and aftermarket parts business.
As global economies improve, Latin America is also benefiting from the increase in business opportunities. The Central America Region as a whole represents a market of about 46 million people who collectively imported more than $29.6 billion of U.S. goods in 2017. As a result, the region is the third largest export market for U.S. manufactured goods in Latin America behind only Mexico and Brazil.
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, the expos provide valuable insights to new and experienced tire and auto part exporters who will gain knowledge of the export opportunities in this dynamic region. All companies and distributors have a great opportunity to sell their products at the shows. The U.S. Department of Commerce endorses the Latin Tyre Expo as well as the Latin Auto Parts Expo.
Companies looking to expand into the Latin American parts or tire market are encouraged to attend.
