The dates of next year’s Bespoked Bristol have been set for March next year, with 45 exhibitors already signed up.
Pitched as the place for the public, industry and press to meet independent makers and designers, the 2012 show will promote new frame building talent of those just starting out and not yet functioning on a commercial level.
2012’s Bespoked Bristol – the UK Handmade Bicycle Show – will run from March 23rd to 25th at Brunel’s Old Station in the centre of Bristol. Last year the show saw 2,500 people attend.
The show organiser told BikeBiz: "We had 31 stands last year so the demand is up significantly. The interest in the show has been huge and we’ve moved the date forward mainly so that if orders are placed they can be met for the summer. We had originally planed for the show to be around that time but with moving the show last year we need to change the date."
