Eurobike, the leading global trade fair for the bicycle industry, will take place again in Friedrichshafen between the 27th and the 30th of August this year (2014). 45,000 trade visitors, approx. 1,300 exhibitors and 1,900 journalists from all over the world will be expected to come and inform about the latest trends of the bicycle industry.
Demo Day – Bikes to Touch and Test
Although the fair officially opens its doors on the 27th of August, it’s worth heading out a day before. On Tuesday, August the 26th, the beloved Demo Day will take place. On the Demo Day, visitors can try out new products from the manufacturers in the nearby woodland, dirt tracks and roads all day long and test their quality. This year, for the first time, the Demo Day will take place directly at the exhibition grounds, namely at the „Messeparkplatz Ost” (East Exhibition Centre), and not in Argenbühl as before.
A Whole Hall for E‑Mobility
E‑mobility has become increasingly important in recent years. For this reason, the organizers have decided to dedicate the „Zeppelin-Halle” (Zeppelin Hall) entirely to this topic. Among other things, two test courses are available for trying out the E‑Bikes and pedelecs of different manufacturers. Special attention is paid to ensuring that climbing routes are also available on these courses, so that the visitors can get an idea of how well mountain routes can be mastered with these wheels.
Excellent Driving Pleasure
If you are interested in the latest innovations of the two-wheeler sector, you should not miss the presentation of the Eurobike Award. Here, new products are put to the test and evaluated according to the criteria of degree of innovation, functionality, reliability and sustainability. This means that not only trade visitors can find out about upcoming trends, but also consumers can make informed decisions about which products meet their requirements. An astute jury is provided not only by the organizers themselves, but also by the German Designer Club (DDC), which could won for the first time as a partner for the award.
Holiday on Bike – The Fair at the Fair
For the 15th time in a row, the passionate travellers among the visitors will be offered something special this year. Because on Saturday, the 30th of August, the Holiday on Bike will reopen its doors as a fair at the fair. This is all about bike tourism. If you want to explore the world on a bike, you have just come to the right place. Exhibitors from all over Europe, as well as South Africa, Israel and Thailand will inform about the current offers. The Holiday on Bike can be found at the „Eigangsfoyer West” (West Entrance Foyer).
Fashion Trends at Eurobike
Even the clothing for the riding should not be neglected. The Fashion Show takes care of this daily at 11:00, 14:00 and 16:00 on the „Bühne des Foyer Ost” (Stage of the Foyer East). Here will be shown what will be trending in the coming season. If you don’t want to fall behind when it comes to fashion, you should watch a demonstration.
Bikers Like to Let it Crash
Before the Bike Fair opens its doors again on the last day, the previous night celebrates vigorously, because bikers know how to have fun. On Friday, the 29th of September, from 18:30 2016 the Eurobike Party will take place on the open-air grounds West and Atrium. There, the largest dancefloor of Lake Constance is opened and night owls are offered the opportunity to live out properly. A bus shuttle service is set up for all those celebrating and returns them to their hotels for free. But if you couldn’t get enough of the party, you are welcome to come to the Riders Party at Club Metropol afterwards.
