After a failed experiment last year with a move to July and no public day, Eurobike returned to its traditional early September date and three trade days, one public day format. The change back appears to have worked.
According to a press release, Eurobike trade attendance was up 6.6% this year with 39,834 trade visitors compared to 37,379 last year. Meanwhile 21,240 public attended on the final day. There were also 1,345 media reporting from the show, making a total attendance of 62,419 from 99 countries with 59% being from beyond Germany’s borders.
“Eurobike 2019 was an innovation-driven mobility show, where manufacturers from all over the world shined a spotlight on the bike and all its components as a sports vehicle and sought-after mode of transport. Established exhibitors and large numbers of new companies all demonstrated the current upbeat mood on the market with their products. Powered by the particular impact of electrification, it was made very clear in Friedrichshafen that the bike will play an increasingly important role – whether in town or country, for leisure or the daily commute,” said CEO Messe Friedrichshafen Klaus Wellmann, summarising the 28th edition of the Eurobike show.
Eurobike 2020 takes place from Wednesday 2nd to Saturday 5th September 2020 at the exhibition grounds in Friedrichshafen.
