The annual Global Tire Expo (GTE), powered by the Tire Industry Association (TIA), ran within the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. As it does every year, the GTE brought in large crowds as it continued to build on its mission to further its goals of education, industry advocacy and professionalism.
Global Tire Expo—Powered by TIA
The SEMA Show is home each year to the Global Tire Expo (GTE), put on by the Tire Industry Association. The GTE is a centrally located display of the latest in tire and tire-related products, featured in the South Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The other major display of tire new products is the New Products Showcase, located in the convention center’s Skybridge. The following pages contain many of the tire and tire-related products that were displayed at the 2016 SEMA Show.
Here is a list of first-time SEMA Show exhibitors in the Global Tire Expo—Powered by TIA section of the 2015 SEMA Show.

The Trade Event’s Continued Growth Bodes Well for the Tire Industry
Each year, SEMA teams up with the Tire Industry Association (TIA) to present the Global Tire Expo Powered by TIA—a unique “show within the SEMA Show” that focuses exclusively on the needs of the tire-business community. Targeted to all segments of the tire industry, including light duty, medium duty, heavy duty, retreading, recycling and more, this tire exhibition and conference stands as the industry’s foremost comprehensive trade gathering.
The Tire Industry Association (TIA)
held a press conference in the Global Tire Expo area of the 2012 SEMA
Show to highlight the current focus, goals and direction of the
90-year-old association that represents all segments of the national and
international tire industry.
With just 54 days left until the Tire Industry Association's (TIA) Global Tire Expo (GTE) at the SEMA Show,
and even less time to purchase tickets at the discounted $25
price that ends October 15, TIA members and other attendees need to
both register for the event and reserve their stay in the
Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas as soon as possible.
This year’s SEMA Show included a specially designed, purpose-built headquarters for the tire industry. A show within a show, the Global Tire Expo—Powered by Tire Industry Association (TIA) was created to focus attention on tire-industry innovations and opportunities. Judging by the positive reactions of all involved, the Expo concept turned out to be a great idea.
The 2010 SEMA Show featured the brand-new Global Tire Expo—Powered by TIA (Tire Industry Association). This new show within a show brought all segments of the tire industry together in a single location and made it easier than ever for tire professionals to navigate the SEMA Show.
