The London Bike Show could have seen as many as 31,912 visitors, according to event organisers VOS Media.

As part of a much larger exhibition, combining The Outdoors Show, The Active Travel Show and the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show, Excel is said to have seen as many as 85,912 people over the four days.

Organisers revealed attendance for The London Bike Show, The Outdoors Show and The Active Travel Show was 31,912 – an increase of five per cent on 2011, with visitors to the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show making up the remaining audience.

London Bike Show manager Geraldine Reeve said: “The industry has embraced VOS Media and The London Bike Show which we’re really pleased about. We’re extremely passionate about cycling and we’re delighted to be creating a very exciting event for the industry. We’ve already started planning for the 2013 London Bike Show and we’re very confident that the show will be bigger and better again. As cycling continues to grow within the UK we’re determined to keep improving the show to underpin the UK’s cycling industry.”

VOS says that many exhibitors have rebooked their slots for next year, with Madison’s Dominic Langan stating: "For Madison it is our premier consumer event of the year."

The London Bike Show, The Outdoors Show and The Active Travel Show will return to ExCeL London from January 17th to 20th next year, and will again take place alongside the London Boat Show.
