This is a full day event, featuring a number of talks and group discussions geared towards making 2017 a productive and successful season for New England cycling. We encourage both event promoters and potential promoters in the New England region to attend. Promoters attending the summit will be eligible to participate in the 2017 NEBRA Promoters Support program, a group of initiatives including NEBRA grant and loan programs, social media promotion and cobranded promotional materials. Promoters wishing for their event to be considered for inclusion in the 2017 NEBRA Trophy Series are also asked to attend the Summit.

Our speakers will include NEBRA staff, regional officials and event promoters.

We strongly encourage in-person attendance. The interaction between our regions promoters is a big reason for the success of New England’s events, and we would like to continue that theme of cooperation and collaboration at the Summit.
