Walk/Bike/Places 2020
Keep Me Updated

The premier conference in North America for walking, bicycling, and placemaking professionals from the public and private sectors.

Walk/Bike/Places is North America's largest active transportation and placemaking conference. Held every two years, Walk/Bike/Places is a unique conference experience that combines experiential learning from walking and biking the streets of the host city, with nearly 100 expert-led breakout sessions and locally-led workshops. The conference is produced by Project for Public Spaces. Here's a preview of what we will be talking about at our 2020 conference: 2018 program.

About

Walk/Bike/Places strives to be the most informative and progressive active transportation conference. Since we were founded in 1980 we have focused on leaving a positive legacy in our host city, tackling the most important and challenging issues of our day (climate change, resource scarcity, intolerance, and economic inequality), and making the conference a place where new and diverse voices are heard. Be sure to look out for our call for proposals announcement in late fall 2019.

Indianapolis

While the city is best known for The Brickyard, it has been transforming itself over the past decade to celebrate other forms of transportation. The Indianapolis Cultural Trail, which melds transportation and placemaking, is the crown jewel of the city's downtown. The trail, along with the Indy's greenway, blueways, protected bike lanes, and bus rapid transit system, have lured employers, residents, business and events such as ours. Public spaces such as parks, markets and open space have also been important catalysts for the city's redevelopment. Join us for Walk/Bike/Places 2020 and we will explore all that Indianapolis has to offer.
