Organisers plan a longer event for 2012 event

First Scottish Bike Show attracts over 5,000

The debut Scottish Bike Show took place at the weekend, attracting over 5,000 visitors over April 16th and 17th.

Show organisers Magdala Media have praised the response to the consumer show and have revealed the event will return next year with more an extra 1,200 m2 space for exhibitors.

The 2012 show will also run for an extra day on Friday, so the show will stretch from April 13th to 15th.

The Scottish Bike Show was well supported by consumer media, with over local and national TV and local papers covering the event. Virtually every exhibitor said they’d be back for next year’s show, Magdala told BikeBiz.

“The visitor numbers showed that the Scottish cycle consumer is very much alive and well,” said 2pure’s Marco Librizzi. “The mix of consumers was wide and varied, from hard core MTB and road riders to commuters and families.

Alpine Bikes director Bryan Sheddon said the show was "a great success for us".
