June 2012: The Aftermath of Reifen 2012
The 27th edition of the well known Reifen Forum has had the biggest success to date as more than 19000 visitors have participated at the event, according to organizers.
The organizing company has announced that that the number of visitors was the highest to date and that the number of international participants has also achieved a new record.
