Velo-city 2017 is the world's largest cycling summit – and this year it comes to Arnhem and Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Visit Royal HaskoningDHV at the Dutch Cycling Pavilion in Nijmegen.
Velo-city 2017 is the annual global cycling summit about cycling, cycling infrastructure, bicycle innovations, bicycle safety and social and cultural change driven by cycling around the world. The Velo-city conference, associated exhibition and numerous events and excursions will take place between 13 and 16 June 2017, in the world's premier cycling nation: the Netherlands.
As organiser of the 2017 edition, the Netherlands has chosen the Arnhem Nijmegen City region as its venue. This is a leading region when it comes to cycling infrastructure and bicycle innovations.
1,700-2,000 delegates from across the globe are expected to participate in Velo-city 2017. Both ahead of and after the conference, various trips will be organised in close collaboration with cities such as Amsterdam, Utrecht, ’s-Hertogenbosch and The Hague.
Cycling is the centerpiece of this conference and at its core are the people. The roles and needs of people will be discussed from the human factors of cycling to the importance of coherent, safe and connected infrastructure. We think it is important to come into contact with you and to share knowledge about the developments in cycling mobility.
