|Register online today and go about your business worry-free for the rest of the summer. If you're attending Interbike '03 and looking to save precious time and energy with the details, this could come as welcome advice; as the online registration process to attend North America's largest bicycle trade event is now live. |
And for those planning to attend this year's event, registering for Interbike '03 has never been easier -with several registration options for all attending categories; including exhibitors, retailers, distributors, importers / exporters, and working media. These options are designed to expedite the application process and eliminate on-site registration lines in October--as over 20,000 industry--insiders are expected to attend the 2003 expo.
Simplest of all options is Interbike's online registration feature--which can be found by visiting http://www.interbike.com/interbike/expo/2003/registration/press.jsp --where attendees can quickly register for the show in a matter of minutes. For past retail attendees, registering for Interbike gets even easier, as the system allows you to bypass the details and register in the time it takes you find the name of your shop in the pull down menu. For exhibitors, this efficient feature becomes available in early June, which this year includes the new Exhibitor Badge Fee Program to support the Bikes Belong Coalition.
In addition, all attendee categories have the option of downloading registration forms that can be either mailed or faxed to Interbike. Those submitting registration forms before August 29, 2003 will receive show credentials and expo information prior to the show--a big plus once show time rolls around.
"The online registration process is a great convenience for all Interbike attendees," said Lance Camisasca, Interbike Trade Show Director. "With everyone's time at a premium, the online service provides a one-stop spot for everything Interbike related. Beyond registering to attend the expo itself, visitors can book discounted hotel reservations and air travel through Interbike's Travel Desk, reserve seats for the Industry Awards Dinner, or check out the virtual floorplan," said Camisasca.
In addition to online registration, expo attendees can also find registration cards in Bicycle Retailer and Industry News in the coming months. Once completed, the postage paid registration forms can be returned via U.S. mail or faxed directly to Interbike.
Also new this year--and reason alone to visit the Interbike Web site--is the virtual floorplan, updated daily. The comprehensive floorplan features up-to-the-minute information on the exhibiting companies and their current location on the expo floor, while also allowing you to customize and print out maps for navigating the show with ease.

Held once a year, Interbike is North America's largest cycling trade show, attracting over 20,000 attendees from around the world. Prior to the show, Interbike now hosts a two-day OutDoor Demo allowing retailers and media a chance to test the latest in bikes and cycling equipment. The next chance to see the future of the bicycle industry will be at Interbike in Las Vegas, Nevada October 10-14, 2003.www.interbike.com
