With a remarkable legacy spanning two decades since its inception in 2003, CITEXPO has firmly established itself as the largest tyre and wheel trade show in the Asia-Pacific region. This milestone edition, taking place from 4th to 6th September, 2023 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center, promises to be an ‘extraordinary celebration of industry excellence’.
This year's show, which is expected to be the most highly anticipated CITEXPO ever, would showcase more than 300 tyre and wheel brands, with the majority of them coming from Chinese manufacturers.
In the Off-The-Road (OTR) tyre category, Triangle (Nexen), Guizhou and Xintu are among the leading manufacturers that would exhibit at CITEXPO 2023. These brands are known for their respective quality and reliability and are trusted by industry professionals around the world for use in construction, mining and other demanding applications.

One of the most significant factors contributing to the buzz around CITEXPO 2023 is the reopening of China's doors to international business.

This means visitors to CITEXPO 2023 could easily connect with Chinese business partners, factories, suppliers and sourcing agencies to explore new opportunities and find the best deals. With no middlemen involved, attendees could negotiate prices directly with potential partners and minimise the risk of fraud, making CITEXPO an essential destination for those who are looking to expand their tyre or wheel business.
Beyond the business opportunities, CITEXPO 2023 offers attendees a chance to stay up-to-date on the latest industry trends and innovations. With hundreds of exhibitors showcasing their products and services, there are plenty of opportunities to learn about new technologies, materials and manufacturing processes as well as network with market insiders, peers and industry experts.
