On Saturday, June 6 - Norrtälje Custom Bike Show goes virtual!

Press release from Twin Club Mc:
 Norrtälje Custom Bike Show goes virtual!

Unfortunately, due to the current social situation with the Corona virus, there is no possibility 
of organizing Custom Bike Show in June 2020 as usual. Instead, Twin Club Mc will host 
an unusual Custom Bike Show - a virtual exhibition.

Saturday, June 6 should be the Custom Bike Show, in Societetsparken in Norrtälje with lots of cool motorcycles and thousands of visitors. But this year, the exhibition and festival will not be in compliance with the restrictions of the Public Health Authority. However, the organizer Twin Club Mc still wants to be able to offer all motorcycle enthusiasts an exhibition, and will therefore invite to a virtual exhibition.

Custom Bike Show is an event that normally takes place on the first Saturday in June. The motorcycle season starts for many interested with a visit to Societetsparken down town Norrtälje. 4000-5000 motorcycles usually come and fill all nearby streets, which for the day are converted into parking spaces. The park has 10,000 visitors - motorcyclists and motorcyclists of all ages.

This year's exhibition will be a completely virtual event, but arranged so that anyone who wants to follow it all digitally will have an experience that can be recognized by many from a regular Custom Bike Show. To achieve this vision, the club has developed a website with several unusual solutions.

Twin Club Mc has worked with Anders Eriksson at Roslagens Webbyrå to create a digital meeting place for both exhibitors and interested visitors.

"Digital exhibitions are not uncommon - but doing an exhibition with several different classes and combining this with creating an exciting digital day is new," says Uffe Karlsson, member of Twin Club Mc, who participated in the development work.

For those who are interested and want to participate in the exhibition, are supposed to submit one or more pictures on their motorcycle.
The pictures are placed in different forums corresponding to the different classes in a regular exhibition. This year's exhibition includes the classes:
HD Chopper, Chopper, Custom, Racer, Classic and Modified Standard.

Unfortunately, there will be no selection for the World Championship of Custom Bike Building, but new for this year is that everyone who attends the virtual event can vote in all classes.

In addition to motorcycle exhibitions, there will be various digital activities to take part in during the day - a music program, with possible live broadcasts and various elements and events that during a regular day in the Societetsparken!

The Custom Bike Show is organized by Twin Club Mc, which is one of the oldest motorcycle clubs in Sweden. However, the way to organize the exhibition this year is completely new!
