The TRAVEL TALK is the place to talk about the latest trends and innovations. The focus is on networking with representatives from the tourism sector (destinations, hotels, service providers) and the bicycle industry (industry, trade, associations), as well as media and bloggers.



The growing cycle tourism benefits from the megatrends of sustainability, ecological awareness and the sharing economy. These trends are different in urban, rural or alpine areas based on the different challenges and target groups. The 19th TRAVEL TALK creates synergies, mutual learning and illuminates the possibility of connecting urban, rural and alpine regions with digital and analogue concepts.

How do the different actors shape bicycle tourism in their destination with exciting collaborations? How are challenges overcome? What can a mountain bike region learn from a small town cycling concept? What role does cycle tourism play in reagrd to everyday routes and commuters? How can the synergies of the tourism, infrastructure and marketing be better exploited? Which sport events for MTB and E-MTB combine tourism and bicycle industry?


Why is the TRAVEL TALK your conference? 

Are you working on interesting concepts for cycle tourism in your city or region, are you a bicycle manufacturer with the best solutions for fleet management, or are you developing great new digital gadgets for the cycling tourism? Then the TRAVEL TALK is your event.


Velokonzept has been instructed to design and organize the TRAVEL TALK for the EUROBIKE. We want to make it interactive, so we are happy to receive your call for participation until March 20th 2020.


An international audience of experts is looking forward to get to know you and learn from the developments in your destination. This could be for example your innovative services and digital products, your approach to market new attractions, your new way of working with partners from other regions or the bicycle industry.

We are interested in innovative and exciting contributions for a B2B-audience. Therefore please no pure advertising or marketing lectures!


How can you get involved?


There are different formats at the TRAVEL TALK:


    - keynote speech (approx. 15 min.)
    - 3-minute pitch with the option to pitch for another 10 minutes afterwards.
    - Discussion (panel, fishbowl)
    - workshop (60 minutes)
    - networking format


In between there is a lot of time to get to know each other, exchange ideas and network in innovative formats. The core element of the day is our coffee break pitch. 10 different people pitch their project in 3 minutes, then there is a coffee break with a digital vote and the two most voted projects can present their project again in 10 minutes.


Your application for the call of participation is not a guarantee that the proposal will be included in the congress program.


If we select your contribution, you will receive free access to EUROBIKE. Fees and expenses are generally not paid.


We look forward to your ideas!
