The organising team at the Bike and Tri Expo in Manchester, UK, has confirmed that the consumer show will not take place in 2018. Originally scheduled to return to EventCity, Manchester, on 10-11 March 2018, the two shows in one – Bike Expo and Tri Expo – offered up the only endurance sport related consumer shows to cover the North West of the UK, an area renowned for cycling and triathlon.
A spokesperson from Hamerville Media Group, the organiser of Bike and Tri Expo, said “We are very disappointed to have to announce the cancellation of the Bike and Tri Expo Manchester. We did not get the support we needed from exhibitors/brands; and the decision was made that it would not make commercial sense to go ahead with the show.
“It is such a shame not only for our loyal exhibitors, but also for our visitors – as this was the only show of its kind in the North of the UK; and we have had some wonderful feedback since our sad announcement. To keep events like this alive, there needs to be more support from brands within the industry. We thank all our exhibitors for their continued support and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
