BRUSSELS, Belgium – With the risk of being ‘snowed under’ in the aftermath of the Taipei Cycle Show, the Velo-city conference will take place from March 23–25, 2011 in Seville, Spain. The city of Seville, which was just awarded a UN-Habitat Best Practice Award, has been chosen to host the 2011 edition of Velo-city as a result of its successful establishment of a complete system of cycling infrastructures.
Velo-city 2011 expects to welcome more than 1,000 visitors from all over the world who – during the three-day conference – will highlight cycling as a means of urban sustainable transport. The conference will look into a breadth of subjects on Health, Education, Efficiency of public investment, Economic impact and employment.
Out of the more than 250 submissions that were received from 27 countries, 120 entries will be selected, to be presented and discussed in plenary and sub-plenary sessions, workshops and
round table sessions. An exhibition related to urban cycling will supplement and compliment the conference.
The conference slogan, “The Cycle of Life”, refers to the bicycle as a part of everyday life and a source of health for people of any age, contributing to more inhabitable cities and urban regions. The official languages during the conference will be Spanish and English.
