No Interbike in 2019: Emerald Expositions Searching for Alternatives

RENO, USA -Yesterday, Interbike organizer Emerald Exposures announced the cancellation of the 2019 edition of America’s leading bicycle show. “The past four years have been difficult for the U.S. bicycle market,” says Darrell Denny, Executive Vice President of Emerald Expositions’ Sports Group. The U.S. bicycle market is already heavily struggling but this year’s announced import tariffs on bicycle products out of China was too much for Interbike.
