Event cancellation: International motorcycle exhibition was planned for January 29 to 31, 2021

Due to worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic, Motorradwelt Bodensee will not be held


Friedrichshafen – Due to the significant deterioration in the situation relating to the coronavirus pandemic, Motorradwelt Bodensee will not be taking place in January 2021. The trade fair team previously remained optimistic, as the number of registrations was quite promising for the event, which was scheduled to take place on the exhibition grounds at the end of January 2021. However, due to the recent rapid rise in the number of infections and the resulting withdrawals by exhibitors, it was with a heavy heart that fair management found it necessary to take the step of canceling the exhibition. “We very much regret having to do this, but current developments leave us no other choice in regard to Motorradwelt Bodensee,” Petra Rathgeber said, explaining the difficult decision the team was forced to make.

The motorcycle exhibition scheduled to take place at the exhibition center in Friedrichshafen from January 29 to 31, 2021, cannot be held under the present conditions. It is currently not possible to foresee what direction the situation will take leading up to January 2021. The trade fair team therefore hopes that all involved can show understanding for this decision and immediately begin planning to participate in the next edition in January 2022. The date for the event has already been set for January 28 to 30, 2022.


An attractive presentation platform where exhibitors will be able to present their new products and highlights online is planned for January 2021
