Awards to return on October 6th; Lobbying begins now; New categories introduced for 2010

The BikeBiz cycle industry awards are back

The third-ever BikeBiz cycle industry awards are returning this year, with new categories and a brand new venue.

The BikeBiz Awards will take place on Wednesday October 6th at the Sway Bar, Great Queen Street, London, close to Holborn tube station.

Taking place on Wednesday October 6th, it’s the perfect curtain raiser for Cycle Show. Following the barnstorming success of last year’s event the prize categories have grown, now including awards for Product Innovation, Retail Account Manager and Rising Star – for a business that has grown or developed significantly over the past 12 months. Lobbying for all categories is now open.

Last year’s winners included Condor Cycles, Wiggle, Evans Cycles, Madison, Zyro, Singletrack, BikeRadar and Charge.

“The BikeBiz Awards are a perfect way to recognise the very best amongst retailers and suppliers,” enthused Stuart Dinsey, Intent Media managing director and BikeBiz publisher. “This year we will have around 150 people enjoying a great night, at very very low cost, on the eve of Cycle Show.

"We are taking the event forward, and we look forward to building towards these exciting Awards over the coming months."
