12th International Motorcycle Conference
1st –2nd October 2018 Cologne

On October 1 and 2, 2018, ifz traditionally invited to the specialist congress in the run-up to INTERMOT, which uniquely brings together motorcycle experts from various sectors and from all over the world every two years. Even in 2018, ifz had the honor of welcoming 150 visitors from 23 nations. As far as internationality is concerned, a new record has been achieved, underscoring the uniqueness and significance of the International Motorcycle Conference.

But not only quantitatively was the conference a complete success, also in terms of quality in the form of outstanding contributions, the visitors were full of praise and not least the round table discussion on the first day of the conference provided for controversial and lively discussions.

The conference program was rounded off by a banquet over the roofs of Cologne. In the „FRÜH-Lounge“ the contributions, impressions and discussions of the day could be revived with a clear view of the Cologne cathedral.

What conference attendees repeatedly praised is the special atmosphere of this event, the unique opportunity to deepen the existing contacts with other safety experts from the different sectors around the PTW or re-establish such.

The contributions of the conference are available on CD in our Shop as volume 18 of the publication series “Forschungshefte Zweiradsicherheit” (proceeding No. 18) of the ifz.
