Intermot Cologne

October 1-5, 2014


INTERMOT Cologne is a major international trade fair for motorcycles, scooters, and bicycles in Europe, and Germany’s most important and largest trade show. In 2012 the show attracted record numbers with more than 203,000 visitors from 117 countries and over 1,022 exhibitors from 37 countries. The exhibitors presented 1,437 brands. Every two years the international motorcycle and scooter community – including not only enthusiastic riders, fans, and potential buyers but also a large amount of industry representatives and decision makers – is meeting in Cologne. With its size and profile, INTERMOT Cologne is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for motorized two-wheelers, including electric bikes and motorcycles. A broad range of parts, accessories and clothing for powered two-wheelers is presented as well.

In 2014, INTERMOT will dedicate once more an entire hall to showcase current trends and developments in the field of electro-mobility. INTERMOT’s e-motion section can be found in hall 5.2 where visitors will have the opportunity to test e-bikes and e-scooters. In 2012, e-motion already showcased around 215 brands and attracted approximately 100,000 visitors.
