The VELOBerlin bicycle trade fair sets up shop on Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th this year at Berlin Messe Nord. It's one of the largest public exhibitions for bicycles in Germany. We were there last year, proudly representing the bike share community. Exhibitors present their products, concepts, and events related to transport, navigation, future mobility, and urban cycling to get consumer feedback. It's definitely a cool space to check out, and, bonus, you can find us staffing a table.
A few other community bike reps from Berlin are also involved. We'll be teaming up with Mitradgelegenheit, ADFC Berlin, and bike clubs Cycling without age and BIKEYGEES to organize a community-style tour through the city to the Berlin Messe Nord location on both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
