Velo-city Global is the world’s premier international cycling planning conference. The four day event offers delegates from around the world a chance to share best practices for creating and sustaining cycling-friendly cities, where bicycles are valued as part of daily transport and recreation.
Since 1980 conferences have been held in cities including Copenhagen, Paris, Dublin, Brussels, Barcelona, Perth, Munich and Montreal. Based on the experience in these cities and with increased global interest in cycling, we expect Velo-city Global 2012 to attract up to 1500 delegates.
Velo-city Global conferences bring together politicians, engineers, planners, architects, social marketers, academics, researchers, environmentalists, advocates, educators and industry representatives, who join forces and foster trans-national collaboration long after the last delegate has headed home. The event also draws experts from related areas, such as health, economics and the environment.
All the participants enjoy an exciting mixture of sessions, where the accent is on dialogue, participation, and information exchange. Not surprisingly, this quality experience sees delegates returning year after year.
