Portugal Bike Value will be present in the Eurobike Convention – Smart Industry panel

The bike industry is shaped by a powerful, independent group of small and medium-sized enterprises and has mastered the major challenges of recent years on its own. However, sustainable growth in the sector must also receive support through political and institutional measures in order to remain resilient and economically viable. Alongside pure sales figures, additional factors for which the industry itself must bear responsibility will also play a key role here: waste in production and packaging, the use of finite resources and new materials, recycling and supply chain optimisation as well as the ability to reach out to new target groups and establish use of the bicycle for everyday routes. Comparable European standards are needed if competitiveness and economic viability are to be retained within the field of conflict between politics, administration and development.  From Portugal Bike Value by Abimota will be present Sergio Ribeiro.

PBV – Knowledge Network

In today’s “connected” world, knowledge (sharing) networks are increasingly important. These “Knowledge Networks” are nothing more than a set of individuals and teams that come together across organizational, spatial, and disciplinary boundaries to create and share a set of knowledge. The focus of these networks is usually the development, distribution and application of knowledge. The mobility sector has also been implementing this development model in the creation of new knowledge. The session consisted of: Brief summary presentation of the main areas of knowledge already available in Portugal on the theme of soft mobility. A panel of industry academics and experts, who will discuss how Knowledge Networks can be a response to emerging market challenges.

PBV – The Covid Reaction

On the account of the pandemic, people rediscovered the pleasure of walking on the street. Europe in general discovered (or rediscovered) the bike, discovered that there is life outside the home, that there is life outside the sofas, outside of social networks, discovered the outdoors. So, one of the ways to exercise in a solitary way, keeping the safe distance, is in fact the bike. This caused that demand increase exponential. No factory has been able to anticipate this reality and increase production capacity to meet this challenge. The factories already have a high level of technology and are not able in such a short time to produce twice what they previously produced. The session consisted of: Brief analysis of the effect of Covid 19 on the global soft mobility sector by ABIMOTA.

Portugal Bike Value, act local, think global

On July the 20th. the first digital market dedicated to soft mobility will be launched and Portugal, once again, will be at the forefront in innovation, with another tool conceived for the sector, and providing a close to reality experience. Portugal Bike Value Digital Market, is born in a year, in which COVID-19 makes difficult for fairs and exhibitions to take place, and in which travel constraints are a reality. “We had to work hard, and develop something totally new, that provides, in the virtual world, an experience very close to real”, says Gil Nadais, Secretary-General of ABIMOTA, who adds that “we understand that we should apply the rule of act local, think global and so, this event will take place, and the platform will be accessible to everyone, all over the world.” Portugal Bike Value program thus has a new tool, which gives the sector even greater visibility, thus continuing its mission of internationalizing the two-wheel “cluster” and smooth Portuguese mobility. Portugal Bike Value Digital Market, will be held as a virtual “fair” from the 20th to the 23rd of July, but it will become the portuguese digital international market.
