Walk/Bike/Places Conference will convene in New Orleans, September 16-19, 2018. The timing could not be more perfect, as New Orleans will be celebrating its 300th birthday while we celebrate our 20th conference! Join us for a remarkable experience in a city that is best appreciated by foot, and traverse some of the 2,650 miles of sidewalks that connect the city's culturally vibrant neighborhoods and places.
If you prefer to bike, rest assured that New Orleans has you covered with bike share, which will launch in 2017. And if statistics are your thing, New Orleans's 2.8 percent bike-to-work mode share beats all but 7 of the most populous U.S. cities. For our placemakers, we cannot think of a more unique and vibrant city in North America. At the conference you will enjoy dynamic public spaces brimming with music, art, and people. But most of all, in this city full of improvisation and life, you will directly experience what Jane Jacobs called the "ballet of the sidewalk.” We can't wait to meet you in New Orleans!
