Belgium Expo-Velo Sport Show Cancelled

BRUSSELS, Belgium – The bicycle show Expo-Velo Sport will not take place this year. The exhibitors have received a letter with the announcement of the cancellation. The show was planned for October 17 – 20 this year at the Expo Heizel.

“The economic circumstances and large number of bicycle events during this period have led to a decreasing number of entries”, stated Daniel Labours, general secretary of the organizing comity.

The cancellation of the Expo-Velo Sport is remarkable. This autumn show finally preceded the spring version Expo-Velo last year. The show had 14,500 registered visitors and 110 exhibitors at the fourth edition in 2007.

The organizing committee had ambitious plans for the 2008 show but the dropping out of several big players in the Belgium market forced the committee to announce the cancellation just one and a half months before the start of the show.

It is unclear if this show will restart in 2009.
