IMBA rolls trail access and MTB conference into one

Date: June 20-23, 2006. Venue: Whistler, British Columbia. Title: IMBA Summit/World Mountain Bike Conference. Perfect for: "mountain biking advocates, land managers, trailbuilders and the bike industry."
Publish date:

This is a merger of two conferences and according to the International Mountain Bike Association "creates an unprecedented opportunity for mountain biking advocates, land managers, trailbuilders and the bike industry to come together for education, collaboration and strategic planning for the future of mountain biking and trail access."

IMBA's bi-annual Summit has been held at various locations since 1996, and the North Shore Mountain Bike Event Society's World Mountain Bike Conference has been hosted in North Vancouver since 2004.

IMBA executive Mike Van Abel said:

"The merged conference promises to be the largest single gathering of mountain bike advocates ever. Rolling these two events together will result in a better conference which will attract a broader audience of mountain bike enthusiasts."

The 2006 IMBA Summit/World Mountain Bike Conference is open to the public and will feature advocacy seminars, trailbuilding workshops, networking, riding,parties and celebrity guest speakers.

"The opportunity for riders and land managers to come together at one location to discuss the future of mountain biking is a logical and significant step in the development of the sport," said Richard Juryn, event producer.
