SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (BRAIN) — Interbike has announced several new and returning retail education opportunities at this year's show.

The Mann Group returns with two 4-hour, IBD-specific retail management sessions and manufacturers including SRAM, Shimano, FOX, and Campagnolo will offer technical training. New for 2015 are more e-bike training sessions on the show floor in Interbike's new Electric Theatre, presented by Bosch.

The two Mann Group sessions are condensed versions of Mann's multi-day seminars. This years' sessions are "Driving Performance & Profitability Through Leadership" and "GEAR Training – The Mann Group's Cutting Edge Sales Management Program." They are being held Tuesday Sept. 15 and Friday Sept. 18, respectively. Retailers must register in advance at interbike.com/education/mann-u-at-interbike. At press time, both sessions were more than 50 percent filled through pre-registration.

E-bike training in The Electric Theatre, presented by BOSCH include:

  • The Dirt on eMTB's, presented by IMBA
  • Guerilla Marketing: Create a Local E-Bike Presence in an Industry with Little National Branding, presented by ExtraEnergy.org
