There’s a new bike show coming to Portland, Oregon dubbed MADE that’s scheduled to make its debut in September of 2023, with the goal of picking up the torch for artisan framebuilders to show-off their wares in a new outdoor venue.
MADE is supported by industry sponsors and ECHOS Communications, a PR and marketing agency specializing in supporting cycling and active lifestyle clients, which will feature events at Chris King, Speedvagen and Breadwinner Cycles, giving show-goers the opportunity to demo products.
Registration for MADE will open this September, with commitments from companies like Moots, The Pro’s Closet Museum, Bicycling Magazine, Paul Component Engineering, Mosaic, Bike Flights, Schon Studio, Speedvagen, Stinner, Abbey Bike Tools, Chris King, Argonaut Cycles, Breadwinner Cycles, WZRD Bikes, Retrotec, Btchn Bikes, Falconer Cycles, Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, Tomii Cycle, Frontier Bikes, Bender Bikes, Bike Flights, Monē Bikes and more already in place.
“MADE is the next evolution of handmade consumer and trade events, creating a format that is inclusive, exciting and supportive,” states Billy Sinkford, VP, ECHOS. “The event will celebrate and support framebuilders and the culture that surrounds them, and our collective goal is to bring awareness to this segment of the industry. To that end, we will be offering free booth space to all builders for the inaugural 2023 year.
Registration for the 2023 show will open in the Fall of 2022, providing for booth space to framebuilders for the inaugural event. Moreover, show sponsor Bike Flights plans to offer free shipping of bikes for all exhibiting framebuilders.
