Friedrichshafen, Germany - Messe Friedrichshafen is adjusting the date for Eurobike 2019. Instead of the originally scheduled dates from 31 July to 3 August, the forthcoming 28th edition of the leading trade exhibition will now take place during the period from Wednesday, 4 September to Saturday, 7 September 2019 in Friedrichshafen.
"The wish expressed by numerous market players to move Eurobike to a later date in future has received tremendous support both during and after the past trade exhibition. We are now pleased to be responding to this wish and are moving Eurobike back to its traditional date at the beginning of September,” announced Klaus Wellmann, Chief Executive Officer of Messe Friedrichshafen.
The organizational concept of three days for trade visitors and the concluding show day addressing the general public will be retained. This year's Eurobike show saw a decline in industry visitors from 42,590 in 2017 to 37,379 this year. A Eurobike press release explained that the drop in visitors that was due, at least in part, to strict admission management.
The adjustment of the timing of Eurobike 2019 has met with approval within the German Cycle Industry Association (ZIV). "The new Eurobike date is fully in keeping with the wishes of our association’s members. Furthermore, we are also picking up this opinion from other players in the industry,” said Siegfried Neuberger, General Manager of ZIV.
