EuroVelo will be returning to the Messe Berlin exhibition grounds for the 2019 edition of ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel trade show, which will be held on 6-10 March, 2019. You are all invited to visit us at the Hall 4.1 booth 256 and to join the Cycling Tourism Day!

In cooperation with ADFC (German National Cyclists’ Association), EuroVelo will organise the Cycling Tourism Day on Friday, 8 March. Among the main highlights of the event will be the EuroVelo Award, the launch of the new EuroVelo website and European database for cycle tourism and a networking reception with food and drinks.

On the main stage, EuroVelo will unveil the latest route to join the EuroVelo network which will become the fourth new route to be added to the network since it was first launched back in 1995. Following this launch, leading experts from the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF), the Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club e.V. (ADFC) as well as other cycling and tourism organisations will get together for a panel discussion about the development of “scenic cycle routes and trails through natural and cultural landscapes”. The discussion, open to the questions from the public, is a perfect opportunity to learn more about opportunities and trends in European cycle tourism. But the number of seats is limited, so make sure to arrive in time!

The last ITB also marked the inauguration of the EuroVelo Cycle Tourism Awards. At last year’s ceremony, France was recognized as the most popular cycle tourism country meanwhile EuroVelo 15 – Rhine Cycle Route claimed the title of the most popular EuroVelo Route in 2017. It is going to be interesting to see who takes home the trophies at this year’s EuroVelo Awards!

With over 170,000 visitors, the ITB provides a great opportunity to meet both professional and members of the public interested in cycling tourism in Europe. Be sure to come join us at the dedicated ECF booth located in Hall 4.1b Adventure Travel (booth no. 256) where we will also welcome visitors for a networking lunch from 12:30 on Friday 8th March as part of the Cycling Tourism Day.

Later in the day, on the adventure stage, there will be several sessions showcasing successful cycle tourism products at European, national and regional levels with practical advice and best practices to attract cycle tourists. We will be particularly highlighting our successful long-term developments such as EuroVelo 13 – Iron Curtail Trail, EuroVelo 15 – Rhine Cycle Route and our current on-going projects like AtlanticOnBike, Biking South Baltic!, MEDCYCLETOUR and the EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route COSME project.
