Please see the official FOR BIKES 2017 Trade Fair figures below:
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.
