How much will the conference cost?

For 2018, the current summer registration rates are as follows, and will move up to the next rate after August 24th, 2018 @ 8pm EST:

$545 for presenters

Please note these registration rates are for the full conference, which grants you access to over 100 breakout sessions, poster displays, Pecha Kucha style presentations and, of course, mobile workshops. Returning attendees may notice that mobile workshops now include a registration fee. We have made this change in order to support the Local Host Committee’s commitment to equity. Fees collected will be remitted to local non-profits, charities, and/or conference legacy projects.

Will you offer scholarships?

Our Scholarship process has now closed. Scholarships and work exchange/volunteers are being administered based on financial need, and the conference’s underlying commitment to equity.

Weren't you called "Pro-Something or other?"

We were, however; we prefer the simplicity and clarity afforded by Walk/Bike/Places.  We have not forgotten our past and the glory of Pro Walk/Pro Bike/Pro Place, a conference that began in earnest in 1980 as Pro Bike. Read more about our conference history here.

Who is planning this event?

The conference is produced by Project for Public Spaces, a non-for-profit with offices in New York City and Washington D.C., with support from our local partner Bike Easy, based in New Orleans.
