The Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition makes its debut at the Dubai World Trade Centre from January 12th-13th, 2018 and is gearing up to be one of the most important cycling events in the Middle East.
The Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition will gather the top local and international bicycle brands, retailers, touring companies and cycling clubs allowing both professionals and enthusiasts to experience the latest in cycling technology and innovation.
“I strongly believe that the regional cycling community and industry have long awaited a cycling exhibition that gathers the world of cycling under one roof. The Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition will fill this demand and greatly contribute to the growth of cycling in the Arab world.”
Sheikh Faisal bin Humaid Al Qasimi, President of the Arab Cycling Federation.
Speaking about the event, Osama Al Shafar, President of the UAE Cycling Federation, noted; “The launch of the Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition is a direct result of the significant growth of cycling both in the UAE and the neighbouring countries. Although hosted in Dubai, this cycling exhibition will be one for the region.”
Plans for the exhibition began early in the year with bicycle companies from Italy, Germany, India, China, Hong Kong, Australia and the United States of America participating in the event.
“The aim of the Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition is to bridge the cycling worlds of Asia, Arabia and Europe in Dubai. Just as important for us is to compliment the plans of the Dubai Government who are finalizing the construction of 500km of cycling tracks in Dubai. We intend to do this by creating a cycling event that will accelerate the growth of the sport and the cycling culture in Dubai, the UAE and the wider region,” said Oliver Osea, Project Director, Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition.
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai recently gave the green light for an additional 500km of cycling track in Dubai in October, which will result in over 600km of track in the emirate by 2021.
