Cycling Industries Europe (CIE) Summit 2023

The premier EU Cycling Industry event of the year returns on 9 March 2023 in Brussels, Belgium!

CIE Summits are the high-level policy events where leading companies of the cycling industries get together with key Brussels stakeholders. A “must-attend” occasion for cycling industry leaders and policy-makers, the Cycling Industries Europe (CIE) Summit is marked as the top annual event to show how bicycle companies are contributing to a greener and healthier Europe and what key policy topics will influence our industrial strategies.

Big names, big points to be made

The political leader of Europe’s Green Deal, Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans of the EU Commission, will deliver a keynote speech at the upcoming CIE Summit 2023. He will be joined by MEP Karima Delli, Chair of the EU Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee, and by the Belgian Transport Minister Georges Gilkinet, the leading force behind the BENELUX Cycling Declaration which is uniting national governments in support for cycling.

POLIS will be participating in the event with a moderating role taken by our Secreatary General Karen Vancluysen.

An European Cycling Strategy

This year, CIE's focus will be on a European Cycling Strategy, which would aim at proposing cycling as the solution to some of the most pressing challenges Europe is facing today, from providing zero carbon mobility to our cities and helping to fight against the climate emergency, to growing a resilient economy with 2 million green jobs by 2030. Moreover, cycling stakeholders are making the case for an ambitious and comprehensive EU-level strategy to double the number of kilometres cycled in Europe by 2030 and build a more resilient and sustainable European cycling industry. The CIE Summit will bring together EU institutions, national governments, and cycling industry leaders to share the very latest news on how this ambitious plan could:

  • Double the number of kilometres cycled by people in Europe
  • Recognise cycling as a priority mode of transport and mobility industry
  • Support a competitive, resilient, sustainable cycling industry
  • Bridge an investment gap for infrastructure and industrial transition, backed by regulatory and trade stability to give a basis for investment confidence.
  • Support the local and regional structures needed to retain workers,
  • Invest in new technologies and make the transition to sustainable production of bikes and components.

Cycling Businesses Taking the Lead

The developing programme will feature:

  • CEO Panel and industrial sessions that will bring together the top opinion formers in the sector to debate and share the latest industrial trends such as growth, supply chains and sustainability
  • CIE and CONEBI's joint activity on how the associations are presenting the cycling industrial agenda to the EU institutions
  • Expert panels identifying the products, services, and markets that will lead growth in cycling in coming years

More updates on the programme will be given in due time.
