CABDA postpones Denver demo event

Published June 27, 2019

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — CABDA has postponed a trade/consumer demo event it had planned to hold in the Denver area this fall, due to venue logistics. Jim Kersten, CABDA's show director, said he plans to go forward with a Denver event in the future.

CABDA will hold three trade shows this winter, in the Chicago, San Diego and New York areas. The Denver event was planned to include trade and consumer elements. 

Kersten said he "quite literally hit a roadblock' trying to obtain permits for an event this year."

His chosen venue is near a concert amphitheater, which has planned events at the same time as the proposed bike demo. 

"Our original plan for on-site attendee parking was no longer possible. We then came up with an alternate plan for off-site parking with shuttle buses. However, current and planned construction along two major approach roads has made this plan untenable," he said in a letter to the industry Thursday.

"We are committed to hosting a quality, public demo event in the Denver area, but we need to ensure that it is set up for success. This includes comprehensive plans for parking, traffic flow, and logistics. We also need proper lead times so that our partners can properly budget, schedule demo product and staff, as well as enough time for us to attract local attendees," he said.
