SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. – July 15, 2010 – Interbike is hosting four lounges on the show floor of its International Bicycle Expo 2010. The indoor portion of the bike industry's weeklong event will be held September 22-24, 2010 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, and preceded by the OutDoor Demo September 20-21, 2010.

To provide attendees comfortable, easily accessible networking areas where they can meet and relax, Interbike will host the Women's Product Showcase, Urban, Networking, and New Product Lounges.

“The new lounges are spacious rest areas in the midst of the Interbike action where attendees can sit down, eat lunch, meet people and soak in what's going on around them,” said Rich Kelly, Interbike marketing director. “Each lounge dotting the show floor has its own focus and feel, representing a variety of cycling communities and showcasing the industries newest and most innovative products.”

The new Interbike lounges include:

Women's Product Showcase Lounge
Presented by Outdoor Industry Women's Coalition (OIWC)
Women-specific designs make their mark on Interbike in OIWC's Women's Product Showcase. The lounge is a welcoming and informative area where attendees can view displays of product designed specifically for women, learn about the exhibitors that support them and meet peers vested in the women's market.
