Participation numbers for the 2021 Eurobike trade show have exceeded expectations, according to organisers. A total of 630 exhibitors from 68 countries and 18,770 trade visitors attended the show, while 13,424 consumers came to the two Festival Days.
Klaus Wellmann, CEO Messe Friedrichshafen said: “With four days of high visitor numbers, Eurobike 2021 was a big success. Despite numerous challenges, we were positively surprised by the significant international presence. In sunny weather and a positive atmosphere, there was strong business drive, further underling the enormous potential for bicycles.”
Burkhard Stork, Managing Director German Bike Industry Association (ZIV), said: “Despite the challenging conditions, the Eurobike team has once again staged an outstanding industry gathering and successful international trade show.
“As the last year for Eurobike at Lake Constance, a bridge has been built for the future of the show in Frankfurt. The time in Friedrichshafen was fantastic. We would like to thank the trade show organisers and the city of Friedrichshafen for these many excellent years. The importance of Eurobike for the unique development of the German and international bike business is something that cannot be stressed often enough. We’re delighted to continue the partnership at Eurobike 2022 in Frankfurt am Main,” he added.
Bernhard Lange, managing partner of Paul Lange & Co. OHG, said: “Naturally, we feel somewhat sad at having to say goodbye to Friedrichshafen – we have been partners since the trade show first started at Lake Constance and greatly appreciate the warm welcome the region has always shown. Nevertheless, the move to one of Europe’s foremost metropolitan regions is the right way forward to restart as Eurobike 2.0 and meet the requirements of the bicycle industry as it becomes a leading driver of modern, sustainable mobility.”
In 2022, the 30th edition of the event will take place from 13 July to 17 July in Frankfurt.
