----------

CIE’s 2020 Summit will be all about how cycling industries can transform Europe’s mobility sector and massively contribute to reaching the goals set in Europe’s Green Deal.

Cycling has been chosen as one of the megatrends of the 2020’s by forward-looking players such as IKEA and Deloitte. And this is where the focus of CIE’s 2020 Summit will be. Cycling industries are the gamechangers of decarbonised Europe and at the summit the sector and its new innovations will be put in the spotlight. The work of CIE’s members is great news for our industries and great news for the planet.

Expect a high-level policy event where the leading experts of the cycling industries will get together with key Brussels stakeholders. Expect to hear about some of the latest up and coming innovations paving way towards the transition to greener and sustainable mobility. Expect buzzing networking with inspirational guests and top-notch experts from the industry. Expect an exciting line up of speakers, including Paul LeeHead of Global TMT Research at Deloitte, giving one of the keynotes of the event and EU experts who will signpost where some of the EU’s billion Euro budgets for business will be available.

For CIE Members, a second day of activities will follow on 29 April. CIE Expert Groups invite you to share their industry-leading work on Market Intelligence, Cargo Bikes, Cycle Logistics, Connected Cycling, Innovation, Bike Sharing and Sustainability before we hold our members’ annual meeting.

More details will follow soon.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brussels and seeing many of you on 28-29 April!


Member Briefing: COVID-19 business response

26 March 2020

Webinar (online)

As the current COVID-19 outbreak is having massive repercussions on the cycling sector, Cycling Industries Europe have decided to host Member Briefing Webcasts in support of the industry. These short briefings will include:

  • a run-through of the situation economically and politically
  • an interpretation of how that affects the cycling sector
  • an overview of what to expect in the coming weeks and months, particularly in terms of government interventions on relief, recovery and funding
  • an insight on how to express your position to your government, region, chamber of commerce, suppliers and customers
  • and a follow-up on recovery actions by the EU, central and development banks, etc.

Kevin Mayne, CEO of Cycling Industries Europe, will provide a 20min briefing on these topics, followed by a Q&A during which you will be able to comment, ask questions and hear what others have on their mind. You will also have an opportunity to indicate which topics you would like us to cover in future webinars, so that we can provide the best support possible to our members. Depending on the circumstances, we will invite guest speakers to give us their expertise and recommendations for recovery.

Make sure to register, as the link to the webinar will be sent 24 hours prior by email to those registered.

Looking forward to speaking to you on the 26th March (3pm - 3:30pm).

Until then, stay well & safe!
