CABDA opens retailer registration

Organisers of the CABDA Expo have announced that attendee registration has opened for the 2020 trade shows, CABDA West outside San Diego, CABDA Midwest in suburban Chicago, and CABDA East in metro New York City.

Early registration is free for retailers, mechanics, mobile operators, bike fitters, rental locations and tour operators.

New for 2020, CABDA is also offering free registration to retailers from adjacent industries, including camping outfitters, resorts, running and hiking stores, spin studios, ski and snowboard dealers and climbing/mountaineering specialists.

“There is tremendous overlap between our industry and our friends in the rest of the outdoor and fitness markets, especially in the apparel, protectives, nutrition, GPS, and point of sale categories,” CABDA show director Jim Kersten said. “We want to give our attendees as many options as possible when cultivating their product offerings.”

CABDA is planning on ‘significant growth’ at its West and Midwest locations. “Exhibitor demand is definitely higher. We’ve added more capacity in both Chicago and San Diego, and we’re planning on double-digit increases in attendee growth,” Kersten said.

To keep up with growth, CABDA has expanded its lodging options offered at each of their venues. Kersten added: “We’re beyond the point where a single hotel can meet our housing needs. Plus, more hotel options allow folks to better utilise their chosen hotel rewards programme.”

CABDA West will take place from 15th to 16th January 2020 at the Del Mar Racetrack outside San Diego. CABDA Midwest will take place 12th to 13th February  2020 at the Schaumburg Convention Center near Chicago. CABDA East will take place from 11th to 12th March 2020 at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus New Jersey.
