Visitor analysis

“The visitor analysis showed us that even bike dealers, media and bike clubs from the remote provinces of China found the way to Nanjing,” said Richard Li, Director of Asia Bike and Asia Outdoor. “It’s also interesting to see that more and more outdoor dealers are planning a future business with sports bikes and will deal with bike accessories in the future. It’s also great for me to see so many trade visitors from Taiwan as well.”

“We appreciate the professional organization of the show, while the level of exhibitors and visitor is very high,” said Erhard Buechel, Vice President of COLIPED, the Association of the European Two-Wheeler Parts’ & Accessories’ Industry.

“It was very important for Bergamont to be here,” said Maik Geletneky, Export Manager of Bergamont Germany. “We have reached the right people at the right place and we learned a lot about the Chinese market by our meetings with both distributors and consumers.

The 4th Asia Bike will take place from October 9th to 12th 2014, and Demo Day on October 8th.
