Almost 30,000 visitors and a full PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition centre: As it has already become a tradition, during the last weekend of March the halls of our Exhibition Centre were full of crowds of cycling enthusiasts. In five halls filled with cycling goods they could see really a lot of news this year, at the stands of three hundred exhibitors coming from six countries of Europe. Altogether 137 journalists were registered in the press centre. Even though the trade fair had a hard competitor in the decision making whether to visit the trade fair or “to go biking” in beautiful summer weather, we registered 29,201 visitors. We are looking forward to seeing you again in 2018!
The FOR BIKES Cycling Trade Fair has undergone an unbelievable transformation for the eight years of its existence in the opinion of many people, and now it is possible, without any doubt, to perceive it as the largest and most important event of its kind not only in our country, but even in Central Europe. “We are pleased by the view of the halls full of exhibitors and visitors and we are also delighted to see that the exhibitors became fond of the trade fair and try to present their products in the best possible way. It is a wonderful overview of cycling, and I believe that all will feel satisfied at the trade fair,” said Pavel Hájek.
Ondřej Cink, one of the most popular contemporary Czech riders racing for the Bahrain-Merida Pro Cycling Team, will visit the MERIDA 3A13 stand at FOR BIKES.
Tthis year, Ondra is experiencing his road debut after leaving mountain bikes.
He will be at the exhibition on Friday, 31 March from 15:00 to 16:00.
The 8th FOR BIKES is quickly approaching, and though the exhibition takes place in two months, the exhibition area designated for the exhibition is getting sold out as the demand for joining the show has increased every year. It is clear even now that in 2017 the exhibition will be bigger than last year, exceeding the 270 exhibitors the show had in 2016. There are still some places available, so do not hesitate and contact us to get a non-binding quote for exhibitin at the largest cycling trade fair in the Czech Republic.
