CABDA opens retailer registration for its three fall trade shows

Published May 26, 2021

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — Organizers of the CABDA Expo have opened attendee registration for their fall 2021 trade shows, which include shows in Southern California, Chicago, and the New York City areas.

Early registration is free for bicycle retailers, professional mechanics, mobile operators, bike fitters, rental locations, outdoor stores, and tour operators.

"Every single member of our industry has been running on overdrive for more than a year. We're excited to finally get back to doing what we love: Bringing together our great bike shops and our great suppliers," show director Jim Kersten said. "In this time of massive supply chain upheaval, looking for new vendors and pivoting to new products has never been more important to dealers."

New for 2021, the CABDA Expos will be hosted as hybrid events, with activities taking place in-person as well as digitally. All attendees will receive access to the platform, which will allow them to attend digital seminars, visit virtual booths, and schedule in-person as well as online meetings with exhibitors.

CABDA's Deputy Show Director, Tylor Robertson, said, "We learned from our CABDA Online event this past February that the real benefit of digital events is the reach, we had shops in attendance from parts of the country and parts of the world that might never make it to one of our physical events.

"So combining the best aspects of a digital show with the tremendous benefits of a face-to-face event seemed like a no-brainer."

Registration for all of the CABDA events can be found at
