Brisbane locks in cycling event for three years
Brisbane will host the first Asia Pacific Cycling Conference (APCC) in April.

With support from Brisbane Economic Development Agency, the event will also be held in Brisbane in 2025 and 2026.

The conference from Australia’s national cycling body, AusCycling, will be held during the 2024 Brisbane Cycling Festival (BCF) in April, with 300 delegates anticipated.

Delegates are expected to come from the cycling community, industry, academia and government.

“With almost four million Australians riding a bike every week, it has never been more important to talk about the contribution cycling makes to Australia’s cities, towns and regions,” said CEO of AusCycling, Marne Fechner.

“The APCC is bringing together thought leaders across a range of disciplines and areas of interest to collaborate and share their expertise in a two-day program.

“We could not be happier with the calibre of speakers we have headlining the conference in 2024.”

Local and international speakers will be covering cycling related topics including advanced urbanism, city planning, urban design, micro-mobility, the relationship between active transportation and public health, and universal design culture.

“Brisbane is a city that can do it all, and combining industry offerings with major events is the best possible outcome for our city as we maximise visitation and enhance economic opportunities,” said Brisbane’s lord mayor, Adrian Schrinner.

“Brisbane is a hub for active and healthy lifestyles [and] aligning the Asia Pacific Cycling Conference with the Brisbane Cycling Festival will see the city become a key destination for bike tourism in the lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“We look forward to welcoming hundreds of cycling enthusiasts to Brisbane, who will fill our hotels and restaurants and deliver a significant economic impact.”
