Cycle California! Magazine presents the 13th annual BE-Pro Conference for bicycle event professionals on January 10 and 11, 2014. We are excited about our move to the Silicon Valley Hotel in San Jose, California.
BE-Pro provides an educational forum and networking opportunities for people who produce and promote bicycle rides, races, and tours.
The conference kicks off on Friday, with a reception and expo, an ideal opportunity for event directors to network with seminar presenters, event sponsors, and their colleagues.
Saturday begins with participant check-in, continental breakfast, and expo. The educational presentations will include risk management: what are the risks of running an event, how to plan to avoid them, and insurance to cover the unexpected. Additional topics will be announced soon.
BE-Pro has sold out the last several years. Moving to the Silicon Valley Hotel offers BE-Pro the room to grow. There is space for a larger expo and more participants.
Mike Nolan of the Grizzly Century said, “I feel compelled to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the BE-Pro conference. All ride directors should seriously consider attending the session! We may be experienced but we certainly don't know everything.”
Victoria Akins, from the Mustard Seed Spin says, “I thought the BE-Pro Conference was awesome -- learned a lot and feel like my ride will really benefit. Thank you, Cycle California!”
