FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (8 March 2000)–In a reaction to Shimano’s decision to visit only IFMA this year (and only Eurobike in 2001), as well as to the industry comments published in Bike Europe’s Jan/Feb. edition, Messe Friedrichshafen has announced that ‘Business will be as usual at Eurobike 2000’. Over 356 exhibitors, including all major brand names, have already booked space in Friedrichshafen, according to the organizers. This is approximately 8% more than at the end of January last year.
This reflects that all controversy over the location of the international bike trade fairs in Germany (and Europe) have not affected Eurobike.
“Our exhibitors seem to be perfectly happy with the clear concept that has supported the European bike business for the last nine years,” says Messe Friedrichshafen.
With regard to highlights of the Eurobike 2000 show, the organizers list a test ground for pedelecs and e-bikes, a special presentation of race team Gerolsteiner with a Shimano Service Center, an e-commerce center and a large Italian bicycle contingency. (JO)
