SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA (BRAIN)—Interbike's individual retail buyer registration is up 45 percent compared to the same time period last year (as of May 28).
The number of pre-registered businesses is showing an even larger percentage increase of 55 percent compared to last year.
"Since announcing registration was open on InterbikeTimes, retailer registration has been very strong," said Rich Kelly, Interbike's marketing manager. "An online comment on the blog post wondered how the current economic conditions would affect registration. That's a good question and there are many factors that affect people's decision to attend the show, but so far it looks like a large number of retailers are feeling that it's important to attend this year."
Interbike registration is available online at its Web site (www.Interbike.com). Online registration saves attendees valuable time and money, and ensures access to the biggest and most important bicycle industry gathering of the year. Retailers who register before Friday, August 15 will receive free show credentials in the mail and expo information prior to the show. For attendees who register after August 15 or register on-site the fee will be $35.
Online registration for members of the media is now available and online exhibitor registration will open Monday, June 16.
