Preparations for the chancellor’s visit are being coordinated by Messe Friedrichshafen and the Zweirad-Industrie-Verband (ZIV), the German bicycle industry association.

The show will be held August 28-31, 2013. The show is trade-only for its first three days and then open to the public on Sunday, August 31.

An outdoor Eurobike Demo Day will take place on Tuesday, August 27, in the nearby town of Argenbühl.
