Postcards From The 2013 Custom Chrome Europe Dealer Show And Bike Show Series. March 23/24th

CC1cyril1A few facts about the CCE  Dealer Show:

CCE has 2200 active Europeean dealers, half of them visiting the yearly show during this weekend. At an average of 3 persons per dealer, it’s about 6600 professionals of the V-Twin European industry getting exposed to the custom part offerings of some of the best V-Twin vendors on both side of the Atlantic. The contingent of US companies exhibiting in Mainz is quite impressive (Ness, Performance Machine, S&S Cycle, Barnett, Avon Grips, Rivera Primo, Daytona Twin Tec, Vision Cycles, and many others) taking advantage of a still very low dollar against the euro (1 euro = $1,29 dollars) to expand their market share in Europe.

Tomorrow Sunday March 24, the general public will be admitted to the show and about 6000 new visitors (entry is 10 euros) are expected to join dealers and get a chance to admire the 125 custom bikes in competition. Many of these top creations will tour Europe until this summer with some of them being shipped in August to Sturgis for your viewing pleasure…

CC2CCE Marketing Director Axel Scherer (left) and Managing Director Andreas Scholz (right), strong of a crew of 54 people, know how to manage a very multi-lingual dealer network and entertain it during all weekend. I am talking about informative sessions during the show (your writer did 2 stage appearances explaining efficient online marketing) but also at night (big party Friday evening at the Wiesbaden hotel where most of us are staying, another bigger one Saturday evening with a Tex Mex theme…) Tomorrow Sunday is judgment day, and yes, be patient, I will feature the best custom creations from Europe.

    I just hope Custom Chrome USA makes a come back one day. CCI Europe seems to be run very successfully, it’s a shame Dae Il Corp can’t get their act together in the US!
