Eurobike and Taipei Cycle Shift 2019 Show Dates
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – Eurobike as well as Taipei Cycle are reversing their decisions on organizing their shows on earlier dates. Both organizers have announced their 2019 dates which clearly indicate that they are moving back towards their original schedules.
The 2019 Eurobike show will take place from Wednesday, July 31, to Saturday, August 3. Next year, Taipei Cycle is returning to their original March dates. This show will take place at the end of March 2019.
Return to original format
For its 2019 event Eurobike is not only moving to a later date but also returning to its original format which includes a public ‘Festival’ day. On the reasons behind these decisions Eurobike show organizer Messe Friedrichshafen says in a press statement “Based upon numerous discussions with retail and industry partners, the vote of the bike sector is very clear: there is a desire to include all bike fans in the Eurobike in the future. There is currently no clear consensus among the industry regarding the question of the ‘right’ date for the 2019 season, with preferences ranging from June to September.”
Furthermore Eurobike manager Stefan Reisinger says “The date in early August 2019 is currently the time frame in which the largest number of dates preferred by the industry overlap, and the vote for a concept for the show that includes an appeal to consumers was very clear. In the future, we will continue to flexibly manage the date and concept for the Eurobike, so as to agilely respond to the needs of the marketplace.”
2019 Taipei Cycle
In a last June meeting the Taiwan Bicycle Association (TBA) decided to turn back to the original schedule for the Taipei Cycle Show which is in March. TBA is co-organizer of the Taipei Cycle show while organizer, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), supports this decision. With that Taipei Cycle is confirmed to return to March in 2019. The exact date is set for March 27 – 30, 2019. The show will take place not only at its usual location in the Nangang Exhibition Hall 1, but also in the new Nangang Exhibition Hall 2. The Taipei Cycle Show of 2019 will be held in conjunction with the Taipei Int’l Sporting Goods Show which runs from March 28 to 30 at TWTC Hall 1 & 3.
Next year’s Taipei Cycle will take place only five months after the 2018 edition. This year’s Taipei Cycle show takes place from October 31 to November 3 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Halls 1 and Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC) Hall 3.
