Eurobike 2019 is moving back to its more traditional date of early September.
The 28th annual show – originally scheduled for 31st July to 3rd August – will now take place from 4th-7th September.
It will retain its organisational concept of three days for trade visitors, followed by a show day for the general public.
"The wish expressed by numerous market players to move Eurobike to a later date in future has received tremendous support both during and after the past trade exhibition. We are now pleased to be responding to this wish and are moving Eurobike back to its traditional date at the beginning of September,” said Klaus Wellmann, CEO, Messe Friedrichshafen.
Eurobike head Stefan Reisinger explained the correction to the timing: "Compromises are not always the best solution. Although it is something that all players within the industry would like to see, we simply have to accept that there is no ideal date for a leading trade exhibition that suits everyone.
“Some emphatically demand the early date while others support the later timing. The convictions of the different trends are firmly rooted and even if we are in a position to offer every exhibition format, there is no blanket solution. It is now certain that a date at the beginning of September is the best possible period to organise Eurobike 2019.”
