2016 Colorado Bicycle Summit call for presentations

collage_Summit-breakout
We are currently accepting ideas for breakout session topics and suggested speakers for our 2016 Colorado Bicycle Summit. The summit is scheduled to take place in Denver in February, with 250 bicycling enthusiasts in attendance. Attendees include bicycle advocates, transportation planners, industry leaders and elected officials.

Breakout sessions are typically one hour long and feature a moderator and panel of up to three speakers, but there is some flexibility in the format depending on the topic. Successful topics have included Accelerating Change Through Pilot Projects (protected bike lanes, etc.), Bike Parks in Your Community, Forum on Women and Bicycling, Bike and Ped Counting Programs, Riding our Way to a Healthier Colorado and Making the Case – Walking and Biking Mean Business, to name only a few.

We’re interested in whatever topics you think might be of interest! Note that we often need to combine topics and suggested presenters to best meet the needs of our audience.

Deadline to submit is Wednesday, September 9.

Thanks for your help in making our upcoming summit another success!
