    Interbike: Annual Time & Place

    I was planning on going to Interbike 2010,but that plan has been extinguished for this year. Unfortunately I have already purchased my airline ticket to Las Vegas from 9/20-9/24/10.

    My question is this, is Interbike always held in Las Vegas on the same week in September every year? I am looking to change my flight from this year to next years venue.

    Thanks in advance.

    The organizers of the show are actually considering moving it to early August for next year. As for location, this is up in the air, at this point. Other venues being discusses are Anaheim and Salt Lake City, but it could remain in Vegas too.

    They should make a announcement soon, maybe at this year's show.

    Personally Interbike should be in Colorado. Just think of the access to the trails from the resorts to the front range to Fruita and its close to my house.

    Interbike has never been about the riding opportunities.

    That sucks, place it in the middle of bike season, in a place that is more expensive to get to, that may have mediocre options for the dirt demo (best thing in the show as you can test out many of the next years parts as well as the bikes) etc. Don't get me wrong, I hate Vegas itself but Colorado would at least be more interesting than Anaheim....

    Anaheim was actually the original location. The demo riding isn't great but riding in the greater LA area isn't bad in general. Plus if it's in August you may be able to get some seats to an Angels game from one of the vendors.

    kinda bummed it won't be in Vegas next year. Interbike is a good excuse to go to Vegas.

    Yep, remember going in the early 90's when their wasn't any bike demos, at least it was later in the season though, I think the IB organisers must be based in California where there is no off season for shops. Any shop in an area where their selling season is limited won't be a fan of leaving in August, the fall is better for those who are starting to see snowflakes at that time of year. I know that the guys from the shop I was going to go with next year are planning on skipping it now.
    Angels are a baseball team right?

    IB night at Disneyland was always fun.

    I could care less than not at all about any ball and stick game.

    FYI: I posted this in another thread, but it's relevant here...

    They did a bunch of analysis for four towns for Interbike: Vegas, Salt Lake, Denver, and Anaheim

    They got a + or - for each of the following categories ( I placed their abbreviation if they had a + by the category):

    - Exhibit space <= LV, A, D (maybe)
    - Location that would maximize attendance <= LV, D, A
    - Large, diverse and affordable hotels, restaurants, entertainment <= LV, D, A
    - Close International airport <= LV, A
    - Good union relations and quality service <= LV, SLC,
    - Outdoor Demo: weather, good trails, etc. <= LV, SLC, D, A
    - Cycling culture <= SLC, D, A

    LV (Las Vegas) = A-
    A (Anaheim) = A-
    D (Denver) = C+
    SLC (Salt Lake City) = D+
