(I'm not a part of this event, but wanted to share it for those interested in Recumbents and that will be in SoCal next Oct.)
Announcing the 1st Annual Recumbent Cycle-Con - Oct 16-18, 2010
Recumbent & Tandem Rider Magazine is pleased to present the first annual Recumbent Cycle-Con Trade Show and Convention, an all new event designed specifically for the recumbent bicycle industry. Industry-Only Hours will provide time for recumbent cycle and accessory manufacturers, dealers and distributors to conduct business together. Public Hours will provide opportunity for excited recumbent enthusiasts and the interested public to see and test-ride bikes right on the grounds of the Pomona Fairplex.
The Pomona Fairplex is located about 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, California. (Google Maps address: 1101 West McKinley Avenue, Pomona, CA 91768). The Fairplex is a world-class exhibition facility, and is an excellent venue allowing nonunion booth setup / tear down, no charge for electrical hookups, and much lower space rates than events such as Interbike. The exhibit building is also fully carpeted - no extra charge for booth carpeting.
The Fairplex a very large fairgrounds allowing secure demo and test riding areas free of any vehicular traffic. Camping and quality hotel facilities are located right at the Fairplex, with additional camping and hotels nearby - all at rates much lower than Las Vegas. For Interbike exhibitors, affordable drayage and storage from Las Vegas to the Fairplex will be provided. (Interbike 2010 is September 20 - 24)
The Fairplex has a very strong marketing team which will help promote the public portion of the event to the millions of people living in the Fairplex's southern California market area, so a large number of new recumbent enthusiasts can be expected to participate. The Fairplex staff is very excited about this event and is committed to helping plan for a smoothly-run event.
The Fairplex is easy to reach via freeway from anywhere in the Los Angeles metro area, and it is close to two International Airports for those flying in (Los Angeles International is about 40 miles away, and Ontario International is about 15 miles. A bus/train/shuttle from LAX will cost less than $20.00). The Pomona Fairplex is freeway-close to all the famous Southern California tourist attractions like Disneyland, Knotts, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain and miles of sunny beaches.
