The Philly Bike Expo has sold every exhibitor space for the 2018 show. This is a first for the show and a sign of the PBE’s growing importance on the calendar for bike brands of all sizes.
In the span of just a few years, the PBE has grown from an affair highlighting regional brands and builders into a significant exposition, pulling in industry leaders like Shimano and SRAM as well as an increasing number of brands from across the US and beyond.
“This is great news for us, registrations have been trending upward since we started sales this year, and we’re excited to open the doors to the public this weekend. Attendees will be able to learn about a wider range of cycling brands and topics than ever before,” says show director Bina Bilenky.
Selling out of vendor space shows that the Philly Bike Expo has become the most important chance for East Coast cyclists to interact with the industry, and an important bookend to the years’ tradeshows where brands can interface with consumers, media and industry partners.
