Event Summary:
2017 marks the 8th Edition of the Latin American & Caribbean Tyre Expo which has grown beyond our expectations every year! The expo provides exhibitors with direct access to the Latin American and Caribbean tire dealers in a personal setting that forges long lasting commercial and personal relationships.

Panama offers a geographical strategic and economical location where exhibitors can present their products to the Latin American & Caribbean tire markets. Panama is a business and tourist destination visited by thousands of business professionals from the region due to its Colon Duty Free Zone and the Panama Canal. Panama has become an international air hub making it easy for travelers to reach.

Around 1,000,000 vehicles presently circulate in the Republic of Panama, of which 70 percent are passenger vehicles, 22 percent are pick-up trucks and commercial work vehicles; buses and microbuses account for about 6 percent of the market and other vehicles represent approximately 2 percent. Panama is ninth among the top ten countries of number of vehicles per capita in Latin America.

The supply of automobiles and automobile parts in Panama is determined by the level of imports. Recent progress in liberalizing foreign trade in the country through the implementation of Free Trade Agreements, together with customs related practices for vis-à-vis the import of used vehicles has favorably impacted the supply of new vehicles.

Sub-sectors offering the best market opportunities include servicing equipment, passenger and light truck tires and tubes for heavier trucks, buses and equipment, passenger vehicle body parts and collision repair equipment.
