The Executive Council of Ancma – the Italian Association of Bicycle, Motorcycle and Components Manufacturers – has resolved to make the International Bicycle and Motorcycle Exhibition of Milan (EICMA) a yearly event starting in 2005.
Sixty-three years old in 2005, EICMA was held yearly until 1957, when it became a biennial event. While the show will again become a yearly event, organizers have split the bicycle industry from the motorcycle industry and offered each market separate dates: The bicycle industry showcases September 16-19; the motorcycle industry showcases November 15-20.
The 30-member Executive Council of Ancma passed the resolution with a unanimous vote, “accepting a request formulated by a large number of Italian and foreign Exhibitors, speaking on behalf of both vehicle and component manufacturers,” according to a statement released by the organization.
