Eurobike Connect goes live

Eurobike Connect, the new online platform, goes live today.

Now users can use to extend and manage bike industry contacts, find and compare product groups and present themselves and their company 365 days a year.

“The bike is now firmly part of the future. It’s connected and digital. Even more reason for us to take this step and expand the show to support the industry with the Eurobike Connect digital offer,” said head of Eurobike, Stefan Reisinger.

The new digital service aims to be the first business network for the bike and mobility industry. The challenge: moving from trade show organiser to become the comprehensive industry intermediary and replace Google as the main source of information and business connections.

Together with the digital agency Scholz & Volkmer, who is responsible for concept and implementation, the result is a modern, specialist networking tool with advanced search functions, individual profiles and relevant international bike contacts. The concept is based on research conducted with international bike industry experts, who were consulted regarding future challenges and requirements. Interested parties who want to join the starting line-up can register now for a company profile to benefit from a 30% early discount on annual membership.

The targeted search functions make it possible to quickly find products, companies, individuals and more, plus further refine search filter options. The special matching process has been designed to reliably produce effective results. Companies can present themselves with their own easily maintainable company profiles to showcase products and provide information. This will ensure high-quality presentation – according to the degree of maintenance invested – and guarantee that they can be found and contacted. Eurobike Connect is not only aimed at exhibitors, who will automatically receive a free account for one year, but also for everyone who wants to be part of the international bike and mobility network. This also includes individuals, who can create a free personal profile.

“This was the perfect project for Scholz & Volkmer. The combination of contemporary mobility and digital product is right up our street. We’re really motivated and delighted to continue working to support Eurobike Connect,” said Peter Post, managing director Scholz & Volkmer.

There are also additional services, such as the product search function, reminder lists and appointments and planner tool – all elements that will help the new platform grow together with the international bike community. The Wiesbaden-based creative agency successfully implemented the new Eurobike website earlier this year.

Eurobike 2020 takes place from 2nd to 5th September 2020 on the exhibition grounds in Friedrichshafen.

The 2019 show saw more than 1,400 exhibitors present the latest technological innovations to more than 60,000 international visitors from the trade and the general public.
