Alongside the business potential and procurement platform, EUROBIKE is also a natural hub for staying up to date with new trends and connecting with experts. One of the biggest draws for visitors is the BIKE BIZ REVOLUTION, which is dubbed as the Conference for Visionaries.

Startups also get to enjoy a full day’s worth of programming on the practical aspects of jumpstarting a business and navigating the current market.
Bikes and tourism often go hand in hand, and EUROBIKE promotes cycling tourism through the support programming at EUROBIKE TRAVEL TALK. It’s a special track of presentations on the current state of cycling tourism as it’s been affected by the pandemic. What are the challenges and opportunities to emerge? The main topic circles around pandemic-related travel restrictions, which has prompted people to go on so-called ‘micro adventures’. Cycling comes as a welcome alternative for a lot of people given the issues surrounding hygiene rules and occupancy. Taking a bike trip is quite healthier and a lot safer in comparison.
