The show organization reports that currently the main floor is sold out. Companies can still gain access to the show by exhibiting at OutDoor Demo and in the newly created Paddock at Interbike area.
“Show brings value again”
“It’s great to see companies like Giant, Felt and others coming back to the show,” said Pat Hus, Vice President of Interbike. “It says we’re doing something right and that the show is once again bringing real value to its exhibitors and our attendees. At the end of the day, that’s always been our goal.”
“Giant USA is excited to return to Interbike,” said John Thompson, Executive Sales Director of Giant USA. “We are thrilled to communicate our brands exceptional capabilities and impress Interbike attendees with what we believe is the planet’s highest level of bicycle engineering and performance.”
Felt’s Director of Marketing, Doug Martin, points out that: “we felt like we needed to be back on the Interbike floor this fall for a number of reasons. In addition to a 2014 line-up we consider to be our best ever, we have several all-new product platforms we will be introducing at the show. “
Accell’s single largest booth
Pat Hus also mentioned that several longtime exhibitors have either increased their booth size, and/or added space at OutDoor Demo. The Accell Group will now have the single largest booth at the show with more than 10,000 square feet of space in its newly designed campus of brands, and several others have increased their footprints as well including Easton Bell Sports, Opus, Norco and Poc.
