The Velo-city conference series is the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) annual global cycling summit organised by the ECF and selected host cities.
Velo-city conferences are widely considered as the premier international cycling conference series and serve as a global communications and information platform and target to influence decision makers, and improve the policies, planning and provision of infrastructure for cycling and the daily use of the bicycle in an urban environment.
The conferences traditionally involve experts, representatives of associations, institutions, policy-makers and social agents, universities and companies.
This will not be the first time that Velo-city goes to Dublin. The city hosted the conference back in 2005 with great success.
“Velo-city 2005 proved a catalyst for cycling growth in the city - the number of cyclists in the city increased by 147% since 2005, but also the conference showed that cycling was a real and viable mode of transport for Dubliners,” says Owen P. Keegan, Chief Executive of Dublin City Council. “Hosting Velo-city in Dublin in 2019 will accelerate the efforts by Dublin City Council and our partner agencies to further the development of Dublin as a world class cycling city.”
The 4-day event from 24th to 28th June 2019 will take place at the Convention Centre, Dublin.
