With pre-show ticket sales of 2,000+ up more than 100% over the previous high, and the website so inundated with NAHBS traffic that the server was down for several hours on Thursday 25th, the Shimano NAHBS is enjoying record popularity in the final run-up to the show.
21 international exhibitors at the show represents an increase of 75% over the next best year, and journalists have come from all over the world too. A wide variety of unconnected cycling events, parties and fundraisers are taking over the weekend, and the energy surrounding the Shimano NAHBS is building to a fever pitch. Our pick of the parties is the COG Magazine Love Your Bike photo exhibition on Saturday night.
Show-goers are advised to consider attending on Friday and Sunday, rather than Saturday which is expected to fill the show hall to capacity.
