Bike Futures has become Australia’s leading bike conference for national and local leaders, planners, architects, urban designers and builders who use bike transport and recreation to advance their communities.

Keynote speakers include Johan Diepens, CEO and founder of Mobycon, the leading edge Dutch transport and mobility consultancy. Mr Diepens, a trendwatcher and strategist, will discuss different smart mobility solutions that are being introduced around the world.
