Record attendance at Philly Bike Show

Published November 7, 2016

PHILADELPHIA (BRAIN) — Organizers of the Philly Bike Show, a consumer show that wrapped up Sunday, said they welcomed the most visitors and most exhibititors in event history.

The show had 3,700 attendees and more than 180 exhibitors.

Bina Bilenky, the expo director, said, "I am always inspired by the enthusiasm shown by the exhibitors, attendees and volunteers for the Philly Bike Expo. To be honest we have faced our share of adversity over the years: a freak October snowstorm in 2011, Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and now this year a public transport strike. Our Saturday numbers were down a little from last year, and I know a lot of downtown businesses were hit hard by the strike, but our Sunday crowd was better than last year which is very encouraging. We are well into planning for the 2017 event, and I am more excited than ever!"

The next Philly show is planned for Nov. 11-12, 2017.
