Las Vegas – bright lights, big shows, gambling, nightlife – it’s a pretty fun place to visit. But it’s so much more than just the strip!
Las Vegas hosts a variety of trade shows and expos, whether in one of their convention centers, hotels, or casinos. You never know what you’ll find! While some are tailored to specific industries, others are suitable for specific interests. For instance, an expo going on from Wednesday September 10 to September 12, the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino will host the Interbike Expo, the place to be for avid cyclists and bicycle retailers.
What It Is
Top names and newcomers in the cycling industry, whether a retailer or manufacturer, will gather to bring you the latest in the world of cycling. It’s quite an experience, and offers something for everyone who loves biking. There are a host of events offering a little something for everyone. Besides showcasing hundreds of exhibitors, they will bring numerous speakers and special opportunities for cycling lovers.
Want to test out the latest and greatest? Check out the OutDoor Demo in Bootleg Canyon. This allows you to try it before you buy it, in the right terrain (none of that street and sidewalk stuff). If those off-road trails scare you and road biking is more your speed, don’t worry – Bootleg Canyon features some paved trails just for you, so you really do get the best of both worlds.
Demoing bikes right outside the venue isn’t a problem either – there is a Demo Track located outside the back doors in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino parking lot, and it’s hard to imagine a more perfect way to test bikes out.
Why not start the day of September 10th off with the Industry Breakfast? You’ll enjoy a wonderful breakfast while listening to the industry’s most inspirational speakers in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino’s Islander Ballroom. At the end of the day, kick back with a cold one and mingle with other cycling enthusiasts at the Lobby Social.
Watch the best of the cycling industry walk the red carpet at the IB Awards Night. There will be a celebrity host to present awards to the cream of the crop of the industry, complete with delicious dinner and top-shelf wine.
If you’re a retailer, there will be educational workshops to help you grow your business, as well as Mann U, a Retail Leadership Event that helps you become the very best. If you’re a customer, check out The Lab – this is where the new, innovative products are available to check out. Try it out, and buy it if it interests you.
Before it all kicks off, participate in the 2nd Annual Ride 2 Recovery Interbike Honor Ride on September 9th. This 26-mile bike ride honors the brave men and women who are our nation’s veterans, starting at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and ending at the OutDoor Demo at Bootleg Canyon. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget, all for a great cause.
On September 12th, Interbike Expo honors its customers with Customer Appreciation Day. From 9:00am to 4:00pm, customers can get a pass to check out all that the industry has to offer. Feast your eyes on the latest from all of the top brands in the cycling industry, as well as new up-and-coming brands. Whether you’re in the market for components, clothing, accessories, bikes, or nutritional supplements, you’ll find it here. There are over 1,400 brands represented at Interbike!
If you feel like a good race, check out CrossVegas, a nighttime cyclocross race on September 10th. It will kick off at the Desert Breeze Soccer Complex here in Las Vegas, in its 8th year and one of the biggest events in the cyclocross world. If it’s just too ambitious for you to consider, why not be a spectator? It’s an exciting event that you don’t want to miss. If you’re an avid cyclist, or someone looking to take up the sport, and you’re in the Las Vegas area from the 10th to the 12th, head to the Interbike Expo.
It’s an experience that can’t be missed, and if you do plan to exhibit at the expo, make sure that your trade show booth stands out.
