NEW The Cycle Show Business Conference
This year’s Cycle Show sees the launch of the business conference. With the UK retail sector caught in economic and political headwinds, the sessions will address key issues in establishing, maintaining and expanding successful retail businesses.
- Branding: Stand out in a crowded marketplace
- Store location – choosing the right store, rents, lease conditions
- Firing on all channels: Leveraging opportunities across your business
- Lifestyle: Understanding cycling and leisure
- Store design – How to maximise impact and sales
- Amazing associates: Finding, training and retaining staff
- Leadership: Creating the right management team for growth
- Customer loyalty: Getting and keeping customers
The aim of these business sessions is to provide examples of best-in-class retailing from beyond the cycling industry, looking for lessons from across the retail spectrum and particularly at sports and athleisure innovation.

The BikeBiz Awards at The Cycle Show
The BikeBiz Awards celebrate the UK cycle industry and the people and companies whose hard work behind the scenes keeps the cycle world’s wheels turning.
“I am delighted that the BikeBiz Awards will be returning to the Cycle Show this year,” says BikeBiz editor James Groves. ” The show continues to grow impressively every year, and pairing the Awards ceremony with the show’s exhibitor drinks reception will place our winners and nominees exactly where they should be: at the heart of the cycle industry.”
The Awards will feature retail prizes to honor high achieving chain stores, local independent shops and giant online retailers, awards for the distributors and wholesalers, accolades for the brands themselves and also for those providing essential services to the industry, from training to advocacy and beyond.
Just as importantly, the BikeBiz Awards is a chance for the trade to hob nob with peers, chat with rivals and make new business contacts. Taking place as part of the exhibitor party at the Cycle Show makes attendance ideal for exhibitors who have had a hard day setting up their stands as well as for attendees of the show who will be staying in the vicinity.
More details about this year’s Awards, including tickets and the nomination process, will be available in the near future.
