APBP and PPS to partner on Walk/Bike/Places 2020

Project for Public Spaces (PPS) and the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) are both pleased to announce a new joint venture for Walk/Bike/Places held next in Indianapolis, IN, August 4-7, 2020.

Walk/Bike/Places 2020 will feature 7 breakout tracks: Infrastructure, Planning, Place, Health, Advocacy, Transit and Excellence. As part of the partnership in 2020, APBP will manage the Infrastructure track to ensure that the content promotes best practices and that it meets the professional development needs of APBP members. For more about the conference tracks and formats visit the conference website. The full program will be revealed in early Spring 2020.

Under the joint venture PPS has contracted with APBP to manage the event’s exhibit space. The conference will continue the tradition of providing discounted registrations to APBP members. New for 2020: complimentary APBP student memberships for anyone who registers for Walk/Bike/Places as a Student/Recent Graduate.

“Formalizing a relationship with APBP has been a longstanding goal of the conference,” said Mark Plotz, Conference Director of Walk/Bike/Places. “APBP members represent the largest segment of our audience and they are important to the sustainability of our event. It is only right and long overdue that we go beyond our verbal support for the organization, and make a pledge to APBP’s future,” Plotz added.

Jessica Roberts, APBP President, noted "Walk/Bike/Places is the premiere gathering for active transportation professionals, and our members tell us how much they value its outstanding professional development and networking opportunities. We are thrilled to be working closely with PPS to make Indianapolis the best conference yet."

Early Registration is now open for Walk/Bike/Places 2020 until March 31, 2020, and this year’s sponsorship and exhibitor package can be found here.

Walk/Bike/Places 2020 will feature 60+ breakout sessions, peer coaching by subject matter experts, and poster displays. The 3-day conference will also feature mobile workshops that showcase the best placemaking and active transportation projects in the host city, all led by members of the local community.

We hope you will join APBP, PPS, and 1,500 other planners, placemakers, advocates, health professionals, designers, engineers and others in Indianapolis, this summer, to make Walk/Bike/Places 2020 a great success!
