A Comfortable, Top-Notch Venue
The venue for the 2018 IBD Summit will be announced later this Spring. Please check back for more details to come.
Panels & Presentations Led By Industry Leaders
All of the content is put together by industry veterans who have their fingers on the pulse of the retail bicycle landscape. We partner with leading organizations to help guide the discussions – including the National Bicycle Dealer’s Association, the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association, PeopleForBikes and more.
Powerful Keynotes by Professional Speakers
The event kicks-off at our opening reception with a keynote speaker that delivers a strong message – one that sets the tone for the rest of the week. Then, we start each day with presentations from some of the top speakers on the circuit, relaying information that help small business owners grow their brick and mortar livelihood.
Small Group Breakout Sessions
One of the featured and most anticipated aspects of the event is the ability to “further the conversations” discussed during the course of The IBD Summit. Event producers carefully put together small groups that are balanced with all types of participants – retailers, suppliers, distributors, etc. The results of these group meetings are recorded and published on the IBD Summit website to build on from previous year’s notes.
Road & Mountain Bike Rides
We supply the bikes, you bring your pedals, shoes and gear. Whether it’s a group ride through the roads of the local city, or shredding the mountain trails, there’s an opportunity for you to re-energize during the course of each day’s curriculum.
Productive Networking Opportunities
Many of the top bicycle retailers and suppliers in attendance, The IBD Summit provides the perfect environment to network with your peers. So many opportunities are available, from the morning breakfasts to the bike rides to the post-event gatherings in the bar – and everything in-between. Don’t miss out on what we believe is one of the most valuable aspects of the event.
