Running from July 2-4, the 2019 edition of Eurobike Media Days was held in the Kronplatz region of South Tyrol, bordering Italy and Austria. The specialist meet-the-media event offered up ‘ideal conditions for putting new sporty bikes of the 2020 season to the test’.
At the fifth edition of Eurobike Media Days – organised by trade show specialist Eurobike – 21 sports-oriented manufacturers, marketing a total of 23 brands, met with 140 journalists from selected industry media outlets in 15 countries.
Plenty of sunshine and the scenery of the South Tyrolean Dolomites with extensive trails and around 120km of test tracks provided ideal conditions for the event.
“As in previous years, the fifth edition of Eurobike Media Days was held under ideal conditions for industry journalists from around the world to inform themselves about the new models of 2020, as well as to test ride, photograph and film them,” said Eurobike Director Stefan Reisinger.
“Meanwhile, the exhibitors were delighted to have the opportunity to intensively exchange with international journalists. The tremendous support we received from our partners Südtirol, Kronplatz and Hero played a decisive role in ensuring that participants successfully got to test road bikes, gravel bikes, and MTBs with and without e-drives, and to discuss them in a relaxed atmosphere.”
Next year’s Eurobike Media Days will also take place within the late-June/early-July timeframe. The exact dates and venue will soon be announced by the event’s organizers.
