The international motorcycle community's reunifying hub

INTERMOT Cologne (written as INTERMOT Cologne in German) is the one-stop international trade fair for bicycles, scooters, and motorcycles as it not only gives industry professional opportunities to conduct business and discuss industry trends but also welcomes the public. This gives exhibitors the chance to get feedback from the end consumer. INTERMOT Cologne has long been part of the bigger IFMA show, which targets bicycles, but the event split into its own entity back in 1998 when interest in motorcycles proved strong enough to warrant a separate event. Exhibitors represent the incredible wealth of two-wheelers and all associated product categories – electrical equipment, motorcycles, scooters, e-bikes, engine parts, engines, gear oil, infrastructure, bicycle helmets, bike bags, electric bicycles, motorbike transport case and sidecars.

INTERMOT Cologne has been happening in Cologne, Germany, every two years with the editions falling on even years. The event is slated for later in the year, taking up October as its month, and lasts five days. Koelnmesse serves as the official host and shares organisation duties with the German Motorcycle Industry Association. Admission is given to professional visitors and the public as well, and the working hours have yet to be announced for the edition. Commuting to the Koelnmesse is a simple task. If you don’t have a car to drive you on the excellent motorway system, you still have an ample choice in public transportation. The city rail has four lines, but there’s also the tram and metro to help you reach the exhibition grounds.

INTERMOT Cologne is a powerhouse of a trade show, and you’ll be more than satisfied with your results at the end of the edition. The last edition saw over 1000 international exhibitors and an audience that rose to 220,000 international visitors total. The mix between professionals and enthusiasts gives you valuable feedback on your product's viability, not to mention how you boost the recognition of your brand. Regarding professional backgrounds, you have manufacturers, retail dealers, buyers and wholesalers, component suppliers, technicians, decision-makers, importers, and exporters. On the other end of the spectrum, the dynamic program that features drag racing and demo races has generated interest in professional racers and stuntmen. You won’t find a more galvanized audience anywhere else than INTERMOT Cologne.
