At the end of a job it is always helpful to take a breath, allow yourself a moment to relax and then look back and coldly assess how it went.
As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think there are any more effective words to say it: the
Bikenomics Forum was crazy cool.
This is not out of complacency or anything else, but I simply enjoyed myself like crazy. In its second edition, the event involved about 160 practitioners from the world of planning, design, tourism, and public administration and 20 speakers who not only showed their vision and knowledge but, more importantly, entertained an engaged and attentive audience.
The beautiful location provided by the municipality of Lignano Sabbiadoro + a perfect team of fitters, organizing secretariat, sound direction, etc. they made sure that rather than the usual conference, a kind of show came out.
EUREKA is all I can say.
Eureka, because we finally found the formula of not making certain themes boring.
Eureka because we have found a format that works and is bound to improve over time.
Eureka because everything worked perfectly.
Eureka because the speakers were magnificent.
Eureka because the industry is finally maturing and even major newspapers such as Il Sole 24 Ore and Corriere della Sera are realizing this.
Bikenomics exists, it is a reality, and it is only at the beginning of a rapid rise that stems from necessary changes in the mobility habits of Italians in the near future.
The Bikenomics Forum in Lignano Sabbiadoro was a small demonstration of what the sector can offer, not only in economic terms, but also in social and cultural terms.

Right now we are taking a breather, but we do not stop thinking about the next edition that we want even more beautiful, richer in content and comparison, more fun and enjoyable.
You just need to decide where (suggestions welcome).
Let’s turn Italy into a bikeable country.
