Registration has opened for this year’s ICBF Conference, taking place on Friday 14th June, which will focus on how cargo bikes and light electric vehicles can play a role in making cities healthier and more liveable.
ICBF 2019 host city Groningen has pledged to achieve zero emission city logistics by 2025. Cargo bikes are a key component in helping to achieve this goal, whilst making the city centre safer and more liveable.
The ICBF Conference will offer insights into how city logistics looks in Groningen and beyond, and what role pedal-power has to play. Participants can expect an inspiring programme packed with a wide variety of carefully curated speakers, fascinating break-out sessions and networking opportunities.
Keynotes from Karl Reiter of City Changer Cargo Bike, and Chris and Melissa Bruntlett of Modacity, respectively, will open and close the conference. Parallel break-out sessions will take place in the afternoon, allowing delegates to focus in on areas of interest such as service logistics, containerisation and innovation. There will also be plenty of chances to network with fellow-conference attendees at a “meet the locals” lunch, and at the end of the day with dinner and drinks.
We would like to invite all public, private and third-sector professionals with an interest in the influence that logistics, cargo bikes and light electric freight vehicles are all having on our urban spaces, and how that will develop in the future.
The ICBF Conference takes place in Groningen on Friday 14th June. The cost to attend is €195 (ex VAT) including coffee/tea at breaks, lunch and dinner at 7 pm. The price without dinner is €175.
