High profile the Netherlands at Velo-city 20102010
Getting more people worldwide to cycle is the common goal of the Velo-city 2010 participants. Velo-city is the largest international conference on cycling. This year some 1000 participants are expected in Copenhagen from June 22 to 25. The Netherlands will have a strong delegation there.
The phenomenon Velo-City has been in existence 30 years this year. From humble beginnings as a European platform, it has grown into a worldwide event with visitors from all parts of the globe. As of this year the conference will therefore be called Velo-City Global. Participants include mayors, town planners, cycling experts, consultants, decision makers and interest groups. The slogan is ‘Different gears - same destination’: everyone has a different background, faces different challenges and comes from different parts of the world, but all have the same goal.
The Netherlands will have a high profile there. Almost twenty organisations will represent the country on the accompanying exposition. In a large pavilion consultants, authorities, centres of expertise( for example Fietsberaad) and commercial parties will demonstrate what they have on offer in the fields of cycling, bicycle facilities, road design, traffic safety, bicycle parking facilities and so on.
