Eurobike 2008 Adding Extra Hall: Now Big Enough?

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – One of the two new halls that are under construction at Messe Friedrichshafen, will be ready to be used at this year’s Eurobike Show. Including the Zeppelin Hall, Eurobike 2008 will take place in 12 halls! Will that be enough to cater for every company that wants to exhibit at the world’s biggest bike show?

It helps to relieve the waitinglist, which is according to Stefan Reisinger Project Manager of Eurobike: "not too long and from next year on we will be able to accommodate even more companies."

Thanks to the very mild winter, one of the two new halls that currently are under construction at the Messe Friedrichshafen, will be (nearly) completed next September and ready to be used on a preliminary basis.

The 6,300 m² hall A7 is located at the newly constructed East entrance of the exhibition grounds that will also feature seminar and conference facilities. If all these facilities will be up and running next September is not yet clear. However, what is clear now is that the extra East entrance will improve the accessibility of the 2008 Eurobike show.

Extended opening hours

Next to the new A7 hall, also the Zeppelin hall will again be used for Eurobike 2008 bringing the total number of to be used halls to 12! This year Eurobike, taking place from 4 to 7 September, will introduce new extended opening hours. Eurobike will open its doors to one hour later (10:00 am) but close two hours later (8:00 pm) in the evening.

According to Messe Friedrichshafen there are three good reasons for this change: Exhibitors and trade visitors will have an extra hour to take care of business at the show; the longer opening hours in the evening are in keeping with today’s trends, and the new schedule significantly helps to reduce roadway congestion by eliminating trade show rush hour traffic in the mornings and evenings.
