Moscow hosted a new bike trade show called Bike-Expo in September. The event started on Sept. 8 and took place at an exhibition hall in Sokolniki, just outside of the Russian capital city. The area features a large parking lot for cars and a dedicated metro station. It is also popular among cyclists because of its vast network of bike lanes. The first two days of Bike-Expo were reserved for professionals while the weekend was open to the public. It was the first time a bicycle show in Russia was held in September. The Velo-Park show, in Moscow, currently takes place in February or March. Next year's edition of Bike-Expo is already scheduled for Sept. 7–9, 2017. Meanwhile, the Velo-Park show is also moving to Sokolniki, and next year's edition will take place there on Feb. 10-12, 2017.
