Velo-city is where advocates, cities, policy makers, researchers and industry leaders meet to shape the future of cycling and sustainable urban development. The Velo-city story began in 1980 in Bremen with deep ties in the founding of the European Cyclists’ Federation. Since then, conferences have been held in cities all over the world including Ljubljana, Brussels, Seville, Vancouver and Rio de Janeiro.

This year’s edition will take place in the beautiful city of Ghent, Belgium. Boasting an unrivalled 4-day programme with 80 + sessions on all things active mobility, sustainable urban planning, cycling economics, industry, political action and cycling activism, we strive to push cycling higher up the political agenda. The conference takes place around the dynamic Velo-city exhibition that serves to showcase the latest innovations for a better cycling experience in cities and beyond.
