"Building Tomorrow's Mountain Biking Today"

We would like to invite you to the seventh International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) World Summit in Bentonville, Arkansas.

From Whistler, British Columbia in 2004 to Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 2014, IMBA’s world summits always draw a worldwide audience. Each host community adds its distinct flavor, as leading representatives from mountain bike advocacy groups, land management agencies, and the bicycle industry gather to share success stories and plan the future of mountain biking.

Featuring Northwest Arkansas and its iconic trail systems within the Ozark Mountains, participants will experience the rugged beauty of this area exploding with mountain bike enthusiasts and see the unique trail connectivity that showcases both the bustling downtown city and the scenic Ozark landscape.

The World Summit program includes keynote speakers, educational sessions, an expo, networking and—of course—plenty of time to explore local trails.

Join us for the 2016 IMBA World Summit—you won’t want to miss it!

SOLD OUT! Thank you for the outstanding turnout.
