Headquartered in Belgium, Tecmate International General Manager Emmanuel Donati commented that "we like the concept that BIG BIKE EUROPE represents and the emphasis on service, workshop and accessories is a perfect fit for us." The recipients of several awards at industry events around the world, Tecmate will be showing new-for-2013 products at BBE.

BIG BIKE EUROPE is the all-new custom and performance industry expo concept for catering exclusively to the international parts, accessories, custom, performance, service, workshop and tuning vendor community.

A 'non-selling ProGrade' expo, BIG BIKE EUROPE is also the new, permanent host event for the acclaimed AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building (2013 will see the World Championship mark its 10th anniversary and first ever appearance in Europe).


BIG BIKE EUROPE will is a three day expo offering exhibitors an innovative and unique new Invitational/Open-admittance attendance strategy.

The first day (Friday May 10th, 2013) is an "Invitation Only" day set aside for motorcycle dealers, custom shops, custom motorcycle builders and customizers who receive invitations from AMD Magazine and the expo exhibitors themselves.

In turn invited dealers are able to register and invite up to 25 of their best customers and high mileage large displacement motorcycle riders, as their own 'VIP Riders' for complimentary three-day all-area expo access as their own guests, compliments of BBE's exhibitors.

The weekend (Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th) is open to general public, rider and enthusiast attendance with tickets available from as little as €10 a day (approx $15.00).

It is estimated that some two-thirds of the value of the European motorcycle market resides with the one-third of European riders who own 'Big Bikes' (source: ACEM).

In addition to a local population of some 18 million "high percentage motorcycle ownership" consumers (within a 100km radius of Essen, Germany, where BIG BIKE EUROPE is being staged), research suggests that some 60 plus percent of Europe's franchised motorcycle dealers and custom shops are within a three, four or five hour ride of Essen.
