Core 2008 was "hugely successful", the 15-supplier hotel show now pushes on for 2009

Core announces 09 dates

The Core Bike Group has announced that next year’s show will be held January 25th-27th 2009. The venue is to remain Whittlebury Hall.

Show co-organiser Darren Mabbott of Silverfish said: "Core Bike trade show continued to grow in 2008, with not only more brands from more exhibitors but also through the growing number of IBDs attending the show who make it their must-see event of the year.

"As well as over 150 brands on display, this year also saw evening entertainment in the form of a packed Gala night and an inspirational talk from road racing star Johan Museeuw, while the days were filled with seminars, free lunches and the chance to meet and talk to the people behind the brands not only in the UK but also representatives from brands around the world."

The 2009 show will be the fifth running of Core Bike.

"Core will continue to combine the personal time and attention from suppliers that you might receive at a single supplier show, but with an unprecedented selection of the UK’s top bicycle and P&A brands at one nationally central location," said Mabbott.
