CycleSummit 2020 Online Event

Monday, November 9th, 2020

CycleSummit Online Conference

The Summit 2020 was supposed to take place in Yorkshire, which was postponed already in April to next October, 2021.

For the 2020 event we found an alternative place at Lake Constance, Germany but with the rising number of positive COVID tests and travel restrictions we decided to cancel this event as well. 

Now we present the CS20 Online Concept, with almost everything that you expect from a real CycleSummit:

  • 1:1 meetings at the virtual marketplace in private rooms
  • presentations on a main stage, broadcasted to all participants
  • social events like an Apérol meeting,  Round Table discussions and an informal Coffee Corner 
  • Workshops and Webinars from our software & app developing partners

To schedule the 1:1 meetings you will receive an invitation to create your online profile at Also, you can send meeting requests through our website but you need to organize them yourself. 

The first 45 tour operators will get a permanent online meeting room. The Duration of each meeting is set to 20minutes. In between the meetings you can attend to Round Table discussions, meet others in the virtual coffee corner or simply go back to the real life in your (home)office. 

We will only use two software tools: Zoom for the meetings, presentations and webinars, and for open conversations.

The online event starts on Monday, November 9th at 9am (CET) and ends at 9pm. This is the most convenient way to also include tour operators from North and South America

Once registered you have full access to the company profiles of each participant. Use our online messenger to schedule your meetings.

There are over 20 meeting slots during the day. Most meetings will take place in a private 1:1 meeting room on Zoom.  A detailed schedule can be found here and will be available for printing soon. After about 2 hours a short break with presentations from our partners will interrupt the meetings.

Webinars from our partner will take place on several times during the day. You don’t need to sign-up, just hop-in the Zoom Webinar-Room. Details can be found on the agenda that will be available for printing soon.

On we set-up different circles that you can join anytime. Some of them are open for socialising and hang-outs. Other circles have a discussion topic and an expert who introduces a certain topic. These tables are limited to 15 participants each, so a real time conversation can take place.

The web profile of every participant and CycleSummit Club member provides informations about the company, business and tour categories, a short and long description, contact details and optional some photos. We  provide a messenger that makes it very easy to get in touch with each other. Not registered users only see the member directory with some core facts. We recommend to join the CycleSummit club. 

The CycleSummit Club is a permanent network and the easiest way to keep in touch through out the whole year. It’s also the best way to get access to the market and meet new faces in between the core events. A membership fee (99.- EUR for tour operators and 199.- EUR for other organisations) will help us to cover the costs of this permanet service. 

The main event – The CycleSummit – will take place once a year. This is a 3-4 day meeting of about 80 tour operators from over 25 countries. The main event is hosted by a cycling destination and is more than just a b2b marketplace. 

This year, the online summit is included in the CS Membership.

CycleSummit is usually sponsored by the hosting destination. This year, several organisations are supporting the CycleSummit in different ways. Some of them will hold a presentation or webinar. Learn more

There’s also a huge array of food hailing from the county’s award-winning restaurants and eateries, including locally sourced pub food and high-end dining at Yorkshire’s five Michelin starred restaurants. With iconic long-distance cycle routes such as the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway, North York Moors Cycle Way, the Way of the Roses and the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route, cyclists of all levels are in for a treat in Yorkshire.

Its heritage as a fashionable spa resort continues in the Montpellier Quarter with the Royal Pump Room Museums, decorating the importance of the local mineral springs.
