The Moving Together Conference
In 1998, both the statewide bicycling action plan and the statewide pedestrian action plan, called for the establishment of an annual statewide conference for educational and networking purposes. The first two of these conferences were held in Worcester in 2000. In May, at Clark University, 50 persons gathered to discuss only walking issues. Later in the year, at the Worcester Holiday Inn, 50 people focused only on bicycling issues. Each mode was discussed separately.
In 2005, the conference moved to Boston. The first several years, the conference was held at the Marriott Courtyard on Tremont Street. Interest continued to grow until attendance hit approximately 250 persons and the conference moved to a larger venue at the Back Bay Sheraton.
In 2013, the conference was held at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Transit joined the conference for the first time as a featured mode. More workshops than ever were offered and over 480 people attended the event. It brought together individuals involved in the areas of planning, public health, bike and pedestrian safety, transit, advocacy, elected offices, law enforcement and education.
