The IMBA Summit and World Mountain Bike Conference (June 20-23, 2006, in Whistler, BC) will be a premier event for trail advocates, land managers, resort and ski industry representatives, and members of the mountain bike industry. Register now and you'll save $100 per registrant. Or enroll three people and pay for two — but hurry, because Early Bird pricing offer expires March 31.
"This much-anticipated conference is the first-ever merger of the IMBA Summit with World Mountain Bike Conference," says Event Director Richard Juryn. "Our event plenary will focus on hard-hitting topics including risk management and liability, sustainability and multi-use trail access and other challenging topics from international experts."
Delegates from around the world — Africa, Nepal, Netherlands, Israel, United Kingdom and Australia — will attend. Confirmed speakers include Welch recreational trails expert Dafydd David; former IMBA President and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee Jim Hasenauer; and Switzerland's Darco Cezin, an organizer for the 2005 World Mountain Bike Championships. Other bike luminaries will give presentations on a range of topics — check the conference web site for speaker updates this spring.
