Tuesday, 4th May
Starting on Tuesday we'll escape our daily routines and dive into the cosmos of bike tourism. The MTB Tourism Orientation delivers three hours of concentrated insider and expert knowledge about bike tourism. Afterwards we will host an open exchange together with Jasper Jauch via YouTube livestream.
Mountain Bike Tourism Orientation
The Most Important Facts About Bike Tourism
In three hours (including a networking break) we will present the fundamentals and success factors of mountain bike tourism. The MTB Tourism Orientation will summarize the core findings from seven years of research and exchange at the annual German Mountain Bike Tourism Congress. From market potential, to service quality, to target group specific offers, the orientation gives you an intensive yet brief overview on the current state of mountain bike tourism. But don't worry about any information overload, afterwards all key facts and figures will be published online in our participant handout.
Starting with the roots of biking in the USA, bike legend Hans Rey takes us through the history of biking... which naturally leads to the question - where is it headed in the future? Over the next two days we will gain valuable insights from speakers who helped shape mountain biking as we know it today.
