Eurobike limiting maximum number of visitors per day for November show

Published September 30, 2020

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Eurobike announced Wednesday that trade show visitors per day will be limited to 10,000 and spread across five exhibition halls and two additional halls.

The five exhibition halls total 24.7 acres. Nearly 400 exhibitors — down from the normal 1,400 — are expected to attend the three-day COVID-19 delayed show on Nov. 24-26 at Lake Constance. Last year, the show drew 39,834 visitors during the four-day event, up from the 37,379 that attended in 2018.

Entry restrictions into the country are currently in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic, including a 14-day quarantine before entering Germany from many countries, including the U.S. In addition, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention currently recommends avoiding travel to Germany.

Under Friedrichshafen rules, trade fairs can be held with "appropriate traceability, social distancing and hygiene measures," according to the show.

"Larger formats and internationality are understandably more like limiting factors at present," said Eurobike organizer Stefan Reisinger. "Whereas, modest sized events and regionality are perceived as helpful. As such, the coming special-edition Eurobike will be bringing together industry members who do not have to travel halfway around the world by plane. Nevertheless, Eurobike will take place live as we believe that this is important, and this belief is also shared by some 400 international exhibitors."

He also adds that the show will be focusing on networking, know-how and knowledge transfer, in keeping with its slogan, "Eurobike Special Edition — The Place To Connect."

Eurobike originally was scheduled Sept. 2-4, but the show announced in May it would move to the late November dates due to COVID-19 concerns. The rescheduled show will not include a consumer day; some regular features, like bike demos and social events, will not be held.

Eurobike is scheduled Nov. 24-26.
