Velo-city 2013 An exceptional conference

Velo-city 2013 is well on its way to becoming the world’s largest cycling-themed conference. The preparations for Velo-city 2013 are in full swing and promise a great event.

So far, 1,000 representatives from 60 countries have registered as delegates for Velo-city 2013. 330 international presenters from various disciplines will ensure a lively professional debate in 240 lectures, seminars, workshops and other interactive discussion formats. 25 plenary speakers will provide delegates with new insights into urban cycling issues. The Mayors and Vice Mayors of cities such as New York, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Munich, Prague or Budapest, amongst others, have confirmed their attendance. The Velo-city 2013 EXPO is fully booked with more than 40 exhibitors and promises a valuable B2B event. We are looking forward to the conference participation of 60 Cycling Visionaries, who are invited to Velo-city 2013 as winners of the Cycling Visionaries Awards. International media coverage for the conference is ensured with over 80 international journalists accredited so far.

At the same time, Velo-city 2013 is embedded in the Vienna Bike Year celebrating urban cycling during the Vienna Bicycle Week just in front of the conference venue, Vienna City Hall. There will be a great variety of public side events, where delegates can get in touch with Vienna’s urban cycling cultures.

We are very much looking forward to your participation in Velo-city 2013!
