On February 19, 2024, the first SAZ Prologue took place in Dreieich, an event that brought together leading representatives of the bicycle industry to discuss important topics about the future of the industry and to award companies.

Of course, we at by,schulz didn’t miss out on this special event! It was an opportunity to deepen existing contacts and make new ones. Another highlight of the SAZ Prologue was undoubtedly the awarding of the winners of the SAZ Supplier Ranking. Smaller and larger companies were honored in various categories for their performance, products and service. At the concluding dinner, we were able to talk to other industry representatives in person, exchange ideas and discuss potential joint projects. It was a valuable opportunity to strengthen cooperation and cohesion within the bicycle industry.
