Eurobike Travel Talk calls for active participation

Eurobike’s Travel Talk is taking place for the 18th time on 6th September, with this year seeing Messe Friedrichshafen and Berlin-based agency Velokonzept calling for active participation in the congress for the first time.

Travel Talk enables the latest trends and innovations from bicycle tourism to be presented and discussed as part of the leading international bicycle trade exhibition.

The “Call for participation” invites companies and organisations involved in the travel and bike industry to contribute suggestions for the congress themes: trends & innovations, facts & figures, digitalisation, bicycle retails and cycle tourism, travel organisers, sustainable mobility and co-operation between the bike industry and toursim sector.

Proposals can be submitted via the Velokonzept Event Portal by the 22nd March.

Velokonzept Managing Director, Ulrike Saade, said: “The Call for Participation is intended to encourage a more diverse range of exciting contributions and innovative ideas about the future of cycle tourism and further strengthen co-operation and networking between the different parties involved.”

In addition to the growing number of themes, the range of formats at the conference is also increasing. Alongside classic presentations and panel talks, there will be new workshop formats, networking opportunities and pitch formats.

Eurobike 2019 opens to trade visitors for three business days, 4-6 September and for all bike fans on the Eurobike Festival Day on Saturday, 7 September 2019. For more information visit and

Last month, Eurobike announced a new partnership with the Association of German Engineers (VDI) Wissensforum aims to enable greater synergy between the automotive and bike industries. The partnership will see the Eurobike Academy take technical knowledge transfer and professional exchange on the latest industry developments “to the next level.”
