Register for Velo-city 2001

Town planners, cycle adovates, politicians, journalists and others - 1000+ people in total - will be making a beeline for Glasgow and Edinburgh in September as the Velo-city conference touches down for the first time on Scottish soil
Publish date:

What is being billed as the "world's biggest cycle planning conference" has launched its invitation to register to prospective delegates.

1000+ delegates from all around the world will converge on the joint venues of Gkasgow and Edinburgh in September.

Velo-city is now 21 years old. It was staged in Amsterdam last year.

The invitation to register has been launched on http://www.velo-city2001.co.uk

Hard copies are available through the conference secretariat, telephone 0141 434 1500.

Since its launch in 1980, the Velo-city series of cycling planning

conferences has become an international focus for transport experts, town

planners, politicians and cycle campaigners.

The 2001 Velo-city has attracted over 300 abstracts for possible conference papers. The prospective speakers come from 42 countries.

This is the first time the Velo-city series has visited Scotland. It is

taking place between September 17 and 21, with the middle day of the

conference reserved for delegates to cycle between the two cities.

“I believe we are set fair for success,” said Olly Hatch, director of the

Velo-city series of conferences. “The organisers of this conference have set

an agenda that moves the debates about cycling on. By choosing the conference

themes they have, they have made this a Velo-city that will definitely be at

the cutting edge.”

Velo-city 2001 director, Erl Wilkie said: “Velo-city 2001’s emphasis on the

likes of health and children’s issues has given this conference a cutting

edge that everyone in cycle planning is desperate to be a part of.”

The conference themes are: Health and well-being; Tourism and economy;

Children and mobility; Environment and land use; and, finally, Sustainable

transport and planning.
