This year there will be 150 newcomers among the more than 1 400 exhibitors at Eurobike in Friedrichshafen, where about 60 000 cycling trade visitors will congregate around Lake Constance from 4-7 September. The trade only show days are 4-6 September, with a Festival Day open to the public on the 7th and the Bike Biz Revolution conference on September 3rd, the day before the start of the show.

On the evening of the first show day visitors will be given a glimpse into the future of cycle-related product developments when the “best new” award winners are introduced. There were 400 entries this year, from which the expert panel of six selected the 43 most impressive in terms of design, degree of innovation, quality of finishing, price versus performance and value added.  A final nine products were selected as the gold award recipients because they particularly impressed the jury or are able to add something unique to the bicycling sector.

During the business conference topics such as data-driven business models, digitally networked bicycles and a Spotify-like approach to mobility and how the digital era will influence and transform the bike industry in future, will be discussed.

During the show more than 100 events will be presented, including trade lectures by the Eurobike Academy, workshops and demonstrations.
