DES MOINES, Iowa (BRAIN) — The Iowa Bike Expo, scheduled for Jan. 27 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, has broken its own record for number of registered exhibitors. The expo has 93 exhibitors lined up for 150 booth spaces, increasing last year’s total by almost 25 percent.
“We know we have a large audience,” says Mark Wyatt, executive director of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition and show organizer. “We upgraded to a larger space, added a demo track, and worked hard to recruit more exhibitors.”
The Expo has added a TerraTrike Demo Track, and the Vandoit Floor Seminar Area. This is in addition to the Bike Law Iowa Entertainment Stage, Bikes To You Women’s Lounge, and classroom areas for meetings.
New vendors such as Ergon, Kryptonite, Orange Mud, HED Cycling, SKS USA/SQ Labs, Selle Anatomica, ABUS, AAA, and Po Campo are joining returning vendors including RAGBRAI, SRAM, Trek, Primal, NorthAmerican Cycles, and TerraTrike.
More than 5,000 people are expected to attend the one-day event. More information at iowabikeexpo.com.
