International Bicycle Trade Fair is axed by Poles

WTR, the International Bicycle Trade Fair, was being organised by the Polish Youth Society, Green Federation (the biggest nongovernmental organisation in Poland), and the POLPLAST Marketing Agency.

WTR’s Jan Trawinski blamed the cancellation on lack of initiative – and cash – from the burgeoning bike factories and suppliers in the region:

"In the current economic situation the majority of the Polish manufacturers and distributors of bicycles cannot afford to rent stands, even at a very low price."
