It's Back! Women Bike Pop-Up Shop
The Women Bike movement is powered by innovative advocacy campaigns and growing riding clubs. It's alive in the racing community and discussions within the biggest players in the bicycle industry.
But, equally important, the Women Bike movement is on Etsy and Kickstarter and the racks of your local bike shops.
Across the country, a growing number of established and start-up companies -- run by women -- are gearing up creative products, services and solutions for bicyclists. With a theme of "United Spokes" we want to showcase those efforts and ingenuity at the 2014 National Women's Bicycling Forum on March 3!
Are you a female entrepreneur with a bike-related business? We want to feature you and your product(s) in the Women Bike Pop-up Shop!
The cost of exhibiting at this full-day event is $200 and includes the $100 registration fee to attend the Forum proceedings, as well. We have limited capacity for 25 vendors - with three feet of display space each. Our selections will be based on ensuring a diversity of entrepreneurs and product offerings, but the sooner you apply the better your chances!
Applications are due January 13. Selected participants will be notified by January 17.
Last year, the Pop-Up Shop was a huge success with 2/3 of participants saying they loved the opportunity to see and speak to women entrepreneurs (and shop!) and more than 1/3 saying they wanted to see more. Connections were made among vendors as well, with more experienced business owners striking up conversations — and lasting relationships — with women new to the field.
Well, we listened to your feedback! For 2014, we added additional slots and provided the option to pair up entrepreneurs with different levels of experience.
Exhibitors: Apply today!
Participants: Register early to get an additional discount to the Forum and National Bike Summit!
