Interbike returns to Las Vegas from Sept. 14-18 and more than 1500 brands will be exhibiting at the Mandalay Bay convention center.
“I get frustrated when I hear people say that they can see everything online, or that there’s not anything new to see at Interbike by the time the show arrives,” said Pat Hus, Vice President of Interbike. “I am going to assume that many of these naysayers haven’t been to the show in many years, and haven’t seen how it’s evolved. No matter how many private events you attend, there is just no way you’ll have seen all that will be revealed at Interbike. Smart brands (big and small) are using the opportunity to let retailers see, touch and experience products first-hand, for the very first time. We understand the role that the private events play in this new ecosystem, but Interbike is about so much more and one of those things is learning about all of the other amazing innovations that are being launched by great companies at our event. This is the life blood of our industry.”
While several well-known brands such as Look, Timbuk2, Guru, and Polar are set to show new product at Interbike, many others have indicated the same. Some examples include:
