Interbike has experienced a surge in individual retail buyer registration. It's up by 45 percent compared to the same time period last year.

The number of pre-registered businesses is showing an even larger percentage increase, 55 percent higher compared to last year.

The opening of retailer registration was formally announced on Interbike's blog, InterbikeTimes.com, and by email to US retailers on May 8th.

"Since announcing registration was open on InterbikeTimes, retailer registration has been very strong," said Rich Kelly, Interbike's marketing manager.

"An online comment on the blog post wondered how the current economic conditions would affect registration. That's a good question and there are many factors that affect people's decision to attend the show, but so far it looks like a large number of retailers are feeling that it's important to attend this year."

Interbike registration ionline saves attendees time and money. Retailers who register before August 15th will receive free show credentials in the mail and expo information prior to the show. For attendees who register after August 15 or register on-site the fee will be $35.

Online exhibitor registration will open Monday, June 16th.

The trade-only gathering kicks off with two days of OutDoor Demo in Bootleg Canyon and continues at the Interbike Expo in Las Vegas.

OutDoor Demo - Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City, NV
Monday, Sept. 22 - Tuesday, Sept. 23
Interbike International Bicycle Expo - Sands Convention Center, Las Vegas
Wednesday, Sept. 24 - Friday, Sept. 26
