Networking possibilities

The 1stWorld Cycling Forum of two years ago underlined very clearly the importance that participants attach to the possibility of interacting with each other informally. That’s why the program of the 2019 World Cycling Forum largely provides for networking. Coffee breaks, joint lunches are on the program for the two days. In addition, after the program of the first day a cocktail party is scheduled before the BBQ dinner of the aft deck of the SS Rotterdam.
