From June 20 to 23, 2006, guest speakers from around the world will be gathering in Whistler, British Columbia to present to a global gathering of mountain bike advocates, trail builders, land managers, tourism professionals, ski resort managers, and members of the mountain bike industry. The unique three-day IMBA Summit/World Mountain Bike Conference will include seminars on mountain bike tourism, trail design, and other topics related to the rapidly evolving sport of mountain biking.
Coming from as far away as Wales, Israel and the Netherlands, presenters will touch on the conference’s major themes including Communication, Collaboration and Clubs — raising the level of communication among trail users, government officials, and land managers for the benefit of local trails; Planning Successful Trail Communities — to promote healthy, active and outdoor lifestyles; Managing Risks and Trails — innovative trail management solutions; and Where do we Ride from Here? — from family free-ride parks to women’s clinics, what will be the emerging trends of the sport.
