E-Motions celebrates successful event premiere

From 11-13 May 2018, the new e-bike event "E-Motions" attracted more than 8,000 visitors to Carinthia on Lake Millstätter See. For three days, everything revolved around the topic of e-bikes in this beautiful holiday region. With perfect weather conditions, e-bike fans gathered information on the latest wheels, accessories, drive systems and travel offers at 33 exhibit booths. Approximately 300 current e-bike models of different types were presented at the Expo.

With 33 exhibitors from Germany and abroad and 300 test e-bikes, the premiere of the e-bike event "E-Motions" last weekend in Millstatt am See in the southern Austrian region of Carinthia offered a first-class, well-rounded event showcasing currently available e-bike models and products.

During the three-day fair, many event visitors received expert advice and tested the extensive range of bikes. There were 20 local bike guides traveling daily around Lake Millstätter See and on the weekend, they led 380 tour participants to the most beautiful locations in the region. The E-Roadbike Experience with the former cycling professional Paco Wrolich was also extremely popular.

Many manufacturers have already confirmed their participation in the e-bike event for 2019. Bernd Lesch, Director of Marketing / Product at Winora Group, comments: "The E-Motions premiere was an all-round successful event, which was very well received by visitors. A highlight was of course the location on Lake Millstätter See, which attracted numerous test riders to tours around the lake or the surrounding mountains. We are looking forward to being a sponsor again next year and meeting many interested e-bike fans."

In addition, a variety of side events thrilled visitors of all ages. At the movie night, exciting stunts and interviews with the greats of cycling shimmered across the screen. On all three days, a "Street Food Market" as well as numerous beach bars and lakeside terraces were an invitation to relax on the lakeshore. Young bike riders were able to let off steam in the Kärntnermilch children's cycling course and get tips and tricks from the pros. Spectacular stunts, show acts and trick battles by bike greats like Tom Öhler, Bobby Root and the Pedal Society provided exciting entertainment every day.

"Our expectations were far exceeded. The region around the Lake Millstätter See has proven to be an E-Bike and E-MTB Eldorado.” Monika Weber from Delius Klasing Verlag is pleased about the successful event premiere and adds: "We are looking forward to the second edition of "E-Motions" from 31 May to 2 June 2019."

"At this point, we would like to thank all exhibitors, partners, sponsors, tourism associations, media partners, the province of Carinthia, Carinthia advertising, the municipality of Millstatt and especially all landowners for their confidence in us. Together, we were able to lay an important foundation for a successful future at the first e-bike event "E-Motions" around Lake Millstätter See," adds Maria Wilhelm, Managing Director of Millstätter See Tourismus GmbH.
