Jointly organised by IFEMA and KANDO and backed by ANESDOR, it will be held from 5 to 8 April at IFEMA

The motorbike sector will be back in Madrid in full force in 2018 with one of its most emblematic events: Vive la Moto, Madrid's Big Motorbike Trade Show, which will take place from 5 to 8 April at IFEMA. This event, jointly organised by IFEMA and KANDO, is backed by ANESDOR, the Spanish National Association of Motorbike Sector Businesses, which represents over 96% of the Spanish motorbike market.

This new project will be one of the big new events in the IFEMA calendar for next year, and undoubtedly the most anticipated by motorbike fans. The Motorbike Trade Show has not been held in Madrid since 2007. It returns to the capital in the context of a market recovery, with excellent expectations in terms of success and participation. This annual event will be held in Madrid in even years and in Barcelona in odd years.
For this new edition, IFEMA has already reserved more than 16,000 square metres of exhibition space in hall 12 and in the area connecting to hall 14 at Feria de Madrid. Both spaces are capable of hosting a major commercial exhibition full of the latest from brands, as well as a space for activities, demonstrations and trials for the public.
This announcement kicks off the marketing of the event, which is backed by ANESDOR, enabling it to meet its goal of maximum industry representation. The main brands that make up ANESDOR have already confirmed their presence at Vive la Moto. In this regard, the activities, product presentations and the presence of major brands will be the event's main attraction. Vive la Moto will be the go-to event for the sector and expects to welcome a large number of visitors from all over Spain.
A growing sector
Vive la Moto, Madrid's Big Motorbike Trade Show, comes at a key time in the motorcycle industry, which grew by 16.1% and saw 171,304 units registered in 2016.
José María Riaño, the general secretary of ANESDOR, said that "the consolidation of growth in the sector has allowed big trade fairs to come back to Spain, along with the support of brands and motorcycle manufacturers for these types of events". In this regard, Riaño explained that "this trade show is emerging as the go-to event for motorbike fans and industry brands and professionals in Spain".
It has been ten years since IFEMA held its last Motorcycle Trade Show, which had a special following since its inception, with spectacular attendance numbers and a high degree of visitor loyalty. The news of its return to Madrid, one of the main markets in Spain and the most active in terms of promoting sustainable mobility, has aroused major interest in the motorbike industry, which has always seen the event as a key element for positioning and stimulating trade.
