Main client objectives

Cycle Tours

Raise the profile and understanding amongst senior decision makes about Leicester vision, ambition and success in providing facilities for, and the promotion cycle and walking

We invested considerable time with Leicester City Council understanding the narrative they wanted to communicate – cycling and walking strategy is being used to create a better place which in turn is bring in investment and creating jobs.

Leicester City Council’s appointed project manager played a very active part in the programme development. n Ahead of the event we developed a series of feature articles and supporting news stories from an in-depth interview with the elected Mayor to a detailed technical feature on the conversion of an old car park into a high quality public space. These were used in print and online and subsequently have led to pretentions at other conferences – both Landor events and with third parties.

Within the programme we built in content with local stakeholders (e.g. employers, developers, local Universities, volunteers) and key partners (e.g. British Cycling and Sports England) and fly in two keynote speakers from New York Transit Authority and NACTO (North American Chief Transport Officers) . Building memorable links between New York’s surprising success in developing cycling and Leicester’s approach and ambition.

Studies tours, rides and social activities designed to showcase and experience the City.

Mobirise

Support Leicester’s case for winning Cycle City Ambition Grant support

We built a narrative both internally and externally – this was built into the design.

Key influencers and decision-makers were invited to speak and attend.

The Transport Minister spoke and deeply involved the core DfT active travel team

Created a space for ‘fringe’ events and meetings with many networking opportunities.

Created critical capacity locally – local authority, business stakeholders, 2x LEP’s and Universities

Generated considerable publicity – local TV, radio and newspapers and trade press. 

Mobirise

Increase internal understanding, in particular, understanding around the park, the cycling and walking strategy support and how it interlocks with the wider city vision as a Great City to Live, Work and Visit

We devised a programme which enabled contributions for various LCC heads of department including inward investment, public health, tourism and transport development together with elected Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby. We understand this was a first, and greatly appreciated.

Over 100 local delegates

Part of the exhibition was made available to local organisations.

Study tours, rides were used to best effect and pre-existing activity (like the mass schools ride and Sky Ride) were brought together with the Cycle City Active City event acting as the catalyst.

Exhibition

The Curve theatre was utilised to its fullest with a multi-stream conference and exhibition venue – a first.
