Summit Overview

Every year, the cycling industry faces a unique set of challenges akin to what other industries go through. However, the cycling industry has its own remedy to help overcome these challenges. Now in its fourth year The IBD Summit is where leading retailers come to sharpen their skills, meet with event sponsors and engage with industry veterans on hot topics affecting our very existence – to ultimately have a voice when it comes to shaping our industry today, and in the future. Be a part of the IBD Summit on January 27-29, 2015 at the Marriott Phoenix Tempe at the Buttes.


The IBD Summit is to the retailer, like a derailleur is to a bike.
Our event arms shop owners, managers and other key staff with the information needed to help them shift to a gear that makes it easier to do business. Through a combination of panel discussions, break-out groups and top level presenters, The IBD Summit is the only event where the content is designed specifically for bicycle retailers. No other event in the country offers this kind of focus, and no other organizer can bring this event to life than Interbike.

We Learn, We Network, We Ride
Whether you are a retailer that is seeking to get their business to its first milestone, or a seasoned-veteran looking to better understand the latest trends – The IBD Summit is the only event that can help take your business to the next level. Our event kicks off with an evening reception/mixer where everyone gathers for a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres before listening to our keynote speaker. On day 1 and day 2, we integrate speaker presentations with break-out groups, panel discussions, high-quality food and a little fresh air – as we enjoy a few road rides with bikes loaned courtesy of our sponsors.

We Make Change
New for 2015, retailers at the IBD Summit will participate in the creation of a manifesto of change. We will bring in industry veterans and experts to participate in panel discussions on topics that affect the very existence of the IBD. If you want to help create change and be part of a new revolution in the cycling industry, come to the IBD Summit and be heard.
