High-performance sessions focused on improving your business and bottom line
Interbike is bringing IBD Summit-level sessions and speakers to the 2018 event, as part of a new focus on education. All seminars are available free of charge to Interbike attendees.
IBD-Specific Content Designed & Moderated with NBDA and The Mann Group
The Retail by Retailers educational discussions were designed based on feedback from the Interbike Retail Advisory Board and in partnership with The Mann Group and the National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA). The objective was to highlight important topics impacting IBD’s today and to learn from retailers who are having success in those areas.
The Forum presented by eBay
Back in its second year, The Forum, presented by eBay, offers short bursts of educational content for IBD’s each day of the show. These 30-40 minute sessions allow you to stop by between appointments without committing to a full hour seminar in a conference room. The Forum is located on the show floor in Hall 2.
The Mann Group has designed a unique and innovative approach to specialty retail leadership development. Once again, it has created a unique program exclusively to fit the needs of IBD’s. Mann U at Interbike is designed exclusively for Interbike retail attendees and is free to attend.
The Supplier Seminar Series at Interbike is the first of its kind education for suppliers and their teams. These innovative presentations focus on issues affecting suppliers directly from design to human resources. All seminars and panels are available free of charge to our exhibitor attendees.
