The 26th Annual Interbike International Bicycle Expo lands at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas September 26 - 28. More than 1,000 international brands cram into 660,000 square feet of floor space for the largest trade show gathering in North America.
Exhibitors, retailers and media gather September 24 and 25 for the Outdoor Demo in Bootleg Canyon on the outskirts of Las Vegas. Several brands, including Specialized, Trek, Kona, Felt, Cervelo, Giant, Orbea and Tomac, will be providing retailers and media the chance to test ride the latest products on trails and a closed-road loop.
In 2006, 735 companies exhibited their wares to more than 21,000 attendees. Several new exhibitors are making their debut in 2007. Here's a complete listing of 2007 exhibitors. This year's tech seminars/clinics are scheduled Wednesday - Friday.
