The Summit will start April 17 with 50 retailers from more than 40 stores registered.
“We’re thrilled with the quality of the shops that have signed up,” said Pat Hus, Interbike’s managing director. “While we’d hoped to get somewhere closer to 75 shops for our first year, we have a stellar list of attendees that includes many of the best retailers in the country. They’re in for a great conference.”
The summit curriculum includes discussions of consumer trends, the economy, marketing, customer service, succession strategy and several panels of leading retailers and category innovators. Speakers include trendspotter Marian Salzman, Nielsen VP of consumer research, Todd Hale, and PUBLIC Bikes founder Rob Forbes.
