SIBEC is an unparalleled way to do business. SIBEC takes place in an upscale venue away from the pressures of the office. It’s focused, productive and offers networking in both formal and relaxed environments to maximize every moment spent at the event.
A key component to a successful business is the ability to develop a network of industry partners – suppliers who can provide products that can serve the best interests of the fitness and fitness club management from throughout the country to be able to network and share best practices. SIBEC creates the platform to foster these relationships--the event combines a forum of one-on-one meetings with great networking activities for the perfect combination to promote business relationships.
- Buyers and suppliers will receive a password to access the event website where they must post their company profile and contact details. Buyers' profiles will include details of projected spending budgets and other valuable market information. Both buyers and suppliers have the opportunity to select who they would like to meet with.
- A customized meeting schedule is then drawn up for each company based on both buyer & vendor requests.
- Each supplier is allocated a meeting table in a ballroom where all meetings take place over two days. Each meeting lasts 20 minutes.
- There are a total of up to 22 meetings over the two days.
Throughout the event, attendees meet fellow club management as well as suppliers during meals, receptions and other planned networking activities. This fosters communication and cross sharing of ideas, best practices and future business relationships.
