In the build up to the show an extra exhibition hall was added to contend with exhibitor demand, increasing space by 6,000 sq meters to 32,500 sq meters. This year the number of exhibitors rose to just under 200, with brands numbering from 400 to 600. Growing numbers of dealers, manufacturers and importers from Belgium, France, Germany and Italy attended the show.

According to the organisers, 82 per cent of visitors owned racing bikes, 62 per cent had MTBs and 26 per cent owned touring bikes.
