After a seven year stint at Messe Berlin, bike festival VeloBerlin will now settle at Berlin’s Templehof airport.
The historic space has 20,000 square feet of hangar space within which the show will be held, set alongside the now public airstrips, which will serve as a great platform for bike testing.
“We are pleased that, in the future, we will be able to hold the VeloBerlin on the grounds of the former Tempelhof Airport. The location is exactly what we wanted and offers an ideal setting for the German capital’s largest bike festival,” says Stefan Reisinger, Eurobike head, member of the management at Messe Friedrichshafen and organiser of the VeloBerlin.
Ulrike Saade, managing director of Velokonzept and promoter of VeloBerlin since 2011, adds: “The years at Messe Berlin were great. But this is exactly the right time for a change. We are extremely pleased that we can offer exhibitors and visitors a fantastic bike festival on the grounds of the former airport.”
It is expected that the 2018 show may draw as many as 300 brands.
The venue 2018 is easy to reach using all modes of transportation. The Paradestrasse subway station is adjacent to the site and sufficient parking is also available. Visitors who ride their bike to the event can either safely park it in front of the exhibition halls or take it in the event with them.
