The organizers of the Eurobike show in Friedrichshafen said that this year’s new, later November date (Nov. 24-26) due to corona is tailored to the needs and requirements of the bicycle industry. Eurobike, as a working trade show for industry and trade without end-user days, has been well received, according to the organizers: “The majority of exhibitors will stay on board and use the event as a unique opportunity in 2020 to meet, gather and exchange information in an international setting. The protection of the health and safety of all visitors is a central issue for us,” said Klaus Wellmann, managing director of Messe Friedrichshafen.
Stefan Reisinger, Eurobike’s project manager, said that organizing an industry platform to discuss the most important developments during the crisis is the right way to move forward. In order to provide participants with an appropriate setting for meetings and the exchange of information, the trade show will be based on a business-lounge concept. This is a particularly cost-effective option, as no separate company booth construction is required. For the majority of bike manufacturers, a November show means that order dates have already closed. Nevertheless, many brands have announced that they want to use the platform for their OE and spec meetings. Training programs for trade visitors covering all important topics will also be offered at the show.
As Covid-19 is still an issue, Messe Friedrichshafen is taking all possible measures to create a safe working atmosphere at Eurobike.
