From strategy to implementation

At the conference, representatives of administrations, tourism destinations, railway companies and associations will present strategies, concepts and projects on cycling tourism. In this way, the ARE would like to promote the exchange between different subject areas and emphasise the importance of good coordination.

The first part of the event will focus on national cycling strategies and their impact on cycling tourism in the Alpine region. Subsequently, the integration of bicycles in the planning of infrastructure projects and the loading of bicycles in public transport will be discussed.

In the afternoon, workshops offer the opportunity to learn more about specific aspects and projects. Afterwards, the participants will engage in the topic of destination marketing and the question of how cycling tourists can be better informed. Changes in the digital sphere will be highlighted in particular.
