"Hosting the Cycle City Active City Conference in Leicester is a significant endorsement of the city’s approach to encouraging cycling, walking and public realm improvements.

It is an excellent opportunity to share the great things happening with the City Mayor’s ‘Connecting Leicester’ programme, which has improved links for cyclists and pedestrians between key areas of the city.

There will be a warm Leicester welcome in the heart of the East Midlands for experts and change-makers from across the UK and beyond.

The conference is a great opportunity to share ideas, experiences and examples of how we can all create streets, new developments and cities that work for people, not just cars, and work to build a people-friendly city for the 21st century. This is a conversation that Leicester City Council is pleased to support and encourage."

We carefully curate the best conference programme by featuring an essential mix of keynote presentations from government ministers, council hosts and sponsors, plus streamed seminars on a range of topics, plus the well received Speed Learning sessions! 

We present the perfect blend of conference papers and networking opportunities at the exhibition and both elements work extremely well.
