World Cycling Forum: Capitalising on the current bike boom

BERN, Switzerland - Registration is now open for the 2021 World Cycling Forum (WCF) being held on 6 and 7 September 2021 in Munich, Germany. The 2021 WCF comes after a period of unprecedented global demand inside the bicycle industry and during a challenging time for the bicycle business as they grow and adapt to the new post-COVID-19 normal.

The 2021 World Cycling Forum succeeds the two previous editions in Porto, Portugal and Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The main theme of the two-day international conference is this year: “Capitalising on the Current Bike Boom”.


Strategically placed between two major bicycle tradeshows

The WCF will consider The Market Today and the Market Tomorrow through a series of expert presentations and engaging discussions that will focus on:

  • Growth and challenges of the online purchases
  • The value of the traditional bicycle shop vs. online sales
  • Learning from other industries on how to deal with shifting retail environment
  • How do we ensure best practice in customer care
  • What does the future hold for the bicycle industry

The 2021 World Cycling Forum is targeting top level management and the decision makers of bicycle and e-bike manufacturers in Europe, US and Asia; purchasing, procurement, supply chain directors and managers; CEO’s, COO’s and MD’s of P&A manufacturers and distributors in Europe, US and Asia; decision makers at retail chains, retail cooperatives, retail franchisers as well as industry associations and stakeholders.
