Core Bike Show 2014 is ten years old and Bike Biz take a look back at the last ten years and what's to come!

Core Bike is hitting its decade milestone in rude health. We speak with some of the founders...

Follow us, if you will, through the mists of time all the way back to 2004. The setting is the West Brom Moathouse, as it was then known (now the Park Inn), where a crack team of six bike trade distributors unveiled Core Bike to the unsuspecting bike industry for the very first time.

From those humble beginnings Core has grown and grown again. The show saw double the number of exhibitors by the time it was 2007 and then it left the delights of West Brom in favour of Northamptonshire’s more spacious (and, it has to be said, more swanky) Whittlebury Hall Hotel.

Now there’s 23 exhibitors (and don’t rule out any additions before the show begins in January) that are spread across two floors of the hotel to provide yet more exhibition space for the notoriously in-demand show. So in-demand that it has exceeded the expectations of the founders.

“When we started the show we never anticipated it would grow to the size it is today or become such a popular event with UK retailers,” explains Windwave (Solent) MD Peter Nisbet. “I don’t know where the last ten years have gone but I have enjoyed every show.”

Core Bike was conceived as a distributor house show on a bigger scale, explains Ison Distribution MD Lloyd Townsend: “Ten years ago, we thought that by working together we could offer forward-looking UK dealers a fantastic trade event that combined the close contact advantages of a house show with a trade event that included the cream of the UK industry in one location.”
