GORINCHEM – The trade fair for the two-wheeler industry, Vélovak, which was planned on 27, 28 and 29 September 2020 in Evenementenhal Gorinchem (Netherlands), will be moved to 19, 20 and 21 September 2021. “Since the press conference by the Dutch government of 18 September, but also before that, the sentiment among exhibitors has changed. The need to postponed the fair trade increased more and more. Vélovak is a trade fair that focuses on the Benelux, but due to the new COVID-19 measures from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, Vélovak cannot be continued in a full-fledged way ”, says Mascha de Bruin on behalf of Vélovak.

To make the two-wheel trade fair Vélovak possible at the time of COVID-19, organizer Easyfairs had doubled its efforts and measures, fully in line with all health and safety guidelines. All conceivable protocols were ready to bring the two-wheeler industry together in a safe and responsible manner.

De Bruin: “Even before the press conference and afterwards, we received more and more signals from exhibitors that they wanted to move the fair. As an organizer of Vélovak, it is our duty to listen to the exhibitors and that is why we have reconsidered with various parties involved. The sector indicates that this edition could better be postponed. Of course we regret this decision enormously. Especially in view of the significant impact this has for the participating and related parties with all the preparations and actions that have been set in motion. However, it is currently the only correct decision. ”
The next edition of Vélovak will be on September 19, 20 and 21, 2021 and will take place, as usual, in Evenementenhal Gorinchem. “We are now contacting all exhibitors and parties involved and doing everything we can to make the transfer as smooth as possible,” says De Bruin.
