18 Jun IMBA Europe summit: Mountain Biking in the post-COVID era

Online

The Mountain Bike segment is a major part of the cycling industry in Europe, but it is hardly mentioned in the current discussions about cycling recovery. We need to change that and give MTB a voice. That’s why CIE is working with IMBA Europe to create a dedicated summit just for mountain biking on 18th June. This meeting is for everyone in the MTB sector – suppliers, brands, event managers and MTB centres, please inform all your contacts in the MTB sector that this event is happening. 

The aim of the summit is to provide insights on how to unlock the potential of MTB during the COVID-19 reopening process and recovery planning. Leading experts and policy makers in the fields of adventure travel, MTB tourism & trail development, outdoor recreation and the cycling industry will discuss: 

  • how MTB tourism will look post-COVID
  • how MTB's economic potential & benefits to society can be unlocked during re-opening and recovery planning
  • where MTB fits in the EU Recovery Plan and Green Deal
