EU Commissioner for Transport to address Velo-city 2005
Monsieur Jacques Barrot, the recently appointed EU Commissioner for Transport has now agreed to give the keynote speech at Velo-city, the biggest cycling transport conference. This is very significant. Together with M Barrot will be Ireland's Minister of Transport and other international speakers. Velo-city takes place in Dublin this year from May 31st to June 3rd 2005. At the last Velo-city conference in Paris in 2003, we had about 750 delegates from over 40 countries world-wide – all of who were involved in some way to increase the levels of cycling

Anything special about this Velo-city conference?
The Dublin conference includes first-class speakers from around the world, and is the first summertime Velo-city conference. The host city, Dublin, is at the centre of Ireland's economic surge, and is tackling the problems of rapid expansion through an integrated transportation strategy. The conference will be looking at the role of the bike within that strategy, as well as bicycle transport developments from around the globe.
Uniquely, Dublin also offers the delegates the chance to see the Dublin Port Tunnel under construction, visit the recently opened two line Tram system and control centre, or experience the Dublin Regional Traffic Management Centre in operation. Delegates can also buy a superb city bike at a knockdown price, as part of the conference package.
Any special deals?
There is a special discount fee for delegates from 2004 Enlargement and Accession applicant countries, and for non-EU developing countries, as well as cycle advocacy members. For ordinary delegates who register before March 11th, there is EUR100 saving on the standard delegate fee for the conference.
