A long-running national cycling and walking conference is heading down a new path, by partnering with Australia’s first national Micromobility Conference.
The annual Australian Cycling & Walking Conference (AWCC) has been run by a dedicated group of Adelaide-based volunteers for more than 20 years. It has been held in Adelaide for much of that time but since 2018, every second event has been held elsewhere.
Bendigo hosted the conference in 2018 and it was staged in Newcastle in 2020.
After a successful 2021 AWCC in Adelaide, its organisers have announced the 2022 instalment will be held in partnership with the 2022 Micromobility Conference, at Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse on 25th-26th November.
AWCC President Linley Golat said: “With so many brilliant active transport initiatives occurring in NSW, we think it’s a great time to be heading to Sydney. We’re keen to participate in the exciting conference planned and learn from this year’s local, national and international content.”
Micromobility Conference founder Phil Latz (who is also the publisher of the Micromobility Report) said: “I greatly appreciate the confidence that the AWCC has placed in a brand new event. We look forward to working with the AWCC through the year, including their input in reviewing the abstracts from potential conference presenters.”
Although the Micromobility Conference is new for 2022, the Micromobility Report was a minor sponsor of both the 2020 and 2021 Australian Walking & Cycling Conferences.
