Attendee Registration Opens for Interbike 2017
- Increased Focus on Retailer Education; PayBack Program Gaining Momentum -
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. – May 8, 2017 – Interbike, the largest bicycle industry trade show in North America, today announced that registration has opened for all attendees including retailers, distributors and media.
The focus for this year’s event is on retailer education, with numerous fresh and new sessions being put together and finalized in the coming weeks. The show is bringing IBD Summit-level speakers to the event both as part of Interbike University, and in partnership with the NBDA’s Super Seminars Plus. Experts from The Mann Group and Garage Peloton will present sessions related to retail growth strategies specifically for independent dealers that includes the latest trends in customer service, employee satisfaction, leadership, sales processes and more.
“Interbike is dedicated to being the annual event where North American retailers can not only meet face-to-face with current and prospective brands – they can learn from experts both in and out of the industry to help them grow their businesses,” said Pat Hus, Vice President of Interbike. “We’re taking it up a notch this year with plans for on-floor education, panel discussions from retailers sharing success stories and more.”
Interbike’s recently launched PayBack program has started to gain momentum with brands like Feedback Sports, Sidi, Lectric Cycles, Inno Racks, Nite Ize and more signing on early, as well as national distributor J&B Importers. The program rewards retailers for placing at-once orders with participating brands at the show with cash rebates. Retailers are given extra bonuses for placing orders with more than one brand, and can make up to $1500 – which has the potential to cover travel and expense costs to Interbike.
