The ConferenceBike was designed by American Artist Eric Staller to replicate his artwork OCTOS - a circular bike for 8 riders. The OCTOS created so much interest that Staller decided to develop the bike into an actual product called the ConferenceBike. The ConferenceBike is a 7-seat Human Powered Vehicle that is used for tourism, team-building, elderly and handicapped recreation, school obesity and sustainability awareness programs. The ConferenceBikes are manufactured by German company Velo.Saliko
An invitation to exhibit OCTOS in Amsterdam in 1996 led to the development of the ConferenceBike.
