North American Hand Built Bicycle Show organiser Don Walker has appointed ECHOS Communications as the show's PR agency. Walker has also appointed SJE Productions for show management and strategic direction. This year’s show will be held in March 10-12th in Salt Lake City.
"I've been soul searching on how to make the show better for everyone involved, from the exhibitors to the media to the attendees," says Walker. "This move has me sold on the fact that I have struck gold for all involved.”
Billy Sinkford, partner at ECHOS Communication of San Francisco says: “We have been passionate about the handbuilt community for a long time, and look forward to working with Don to grow the show. I have attended nearly every NAHBS in some capacity, and working to gain more exposure for the builders and exhibitors. We are fortunate to have several amazing builders as long time clients.”
SJE Productions is owned and operated by Steven Elmes, formerly of Fat City Cycles, and founding partner of Independent Fabrications.
"Don and I have talked regularly regarding NAHBS since shortly after I left Indy Fab back in 2001," says Elmes.
"Having gone back out on my own to assist small companies with their marketing strategies, Don and I both felt the timing was right for me to help him on a more formal basis."
