QBP SaddleDrive moves to new location for August event

By Stephen Frothingham

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (BRAIN) — QBP will hold its 2018 SaddleDrive event Aug. 20-24 at Seven Springs Resort, which is an hour away from Pittsburgh.

The company said the new East Coast location has a wider variety of riding surfaces that are well-suited for QBP’s bike brands and for riders of all skill levels. The distributor also said attendees will appreciate the venue for its layout, which ensures retailers are close to all the action.

“This venue change will allow retailers to ride all of our bikes on the types of terrain they were designed for, which means they’ll leave with a strong feel for which bikes they want to stock as well as how to best sell them,” said Meghan Gess, QBP’s events manager.

SaddleDrive will include ride opportunities, one-on-one time with brands and sales team members, and in-depth educational opportunities. The event is invite-only; select retailers will receive invitations in April.
