Stand space for this year's International Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire from Thursday 31st October to Sunday 3rd November is now on general sale and traders interested in exhibiting are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

The annual end-of-season event is the largest dedicated off-road show in Europe and, as a result, attracts many overseas visitors as well as enthusiasts in their thousands from the UK. More than 120 companies representing some 200 brands exhibited at the 2012 Show and the majority of stand-holders reported healthy sales and interest, confirming that as far as the off-road trade is concerned this show is the place to do business.

What did 2012 exhibitors have to say?

"KTM enjoyed a very successful event. The show continues to puts us in front of the dedicated off-road riders and motorsport fans that attend every year. I look forward working with the new owners to continue the show's success." Ross Walker, KTM UK.

"Dunlop showed key off-road products, ran two competitions and sponsored 'Man Of Steel' on the stage with sets of motocross tyres given away as prizes. A very good turnout made it enjoyable and great value for money." Mark Sears, Dunlop.

Debbie Taylor, Michelin. "Huge footfall with a very good mix of riders and dealers. The organisation was spot on and it felt like a proper show. A great atmosphere."

Dylan Brown, Putoline operations manager. "For Putoline the Dirt Bike Show is a very important exhibition to showcase the latest cutting edge lubricant collection to its consumers."

Moto; "Just to echo other comments...we had a great show," said Factory Media's James Carter.

"Rock Oil was delighted to have a stand at the International Dirt Bike Show," advised marketing manager Russell Bower. "The show marked the first time in over ten years that Rock had exhibited and it was great to be back, displaying our new-look packaging and launching new products."

Representing Shoei and Sidi, Aaron Holmes of Craig's Motorcycles said; "Best year so far. The half price Thursday made for a steady flow of customers with very good sales."

Surf 'n' Turf, Simon Lunt; "Best ever show with many sales. We met many old friends and made many new. In short, a total success."
