The 2nd TBI global conference will target global equipment and apparel manufacturers, service providers, technology providers, industry executives, event directors, coaches and other professionals who operate in the swim-bike-run world. The conference will focus on the business of the sport – trends; challenges; growth forecasts; promoting the sport; new technology; social media and mobile trends; international mergers/acquisitions; and other topics designed specifically to bring insights into the market forces that shape the globalization and growth of triathlon, and its related sports of swimming, biking and running.

“We are proud to partner with TBI and Challenge Family to provide registration services for the 2nd global conference.” said Lapio founder Klaus Preisler. “With customers located all over the world, it made complete sense for us to be a part of this event, bringing industry leaders together at a global level.”

Online registration powered by Lapio will be available through the morning of July 10. TBI members who register for the conference will also have the opportunity to purchase a Challenge Roth VIP package at a discounted price. These are premium packages and only 100 are available.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for TBI, Lapio and Challenge Family to work collaboratively to bring together some of the world’s triathlon decision-makers at the world’s largest long-distance event,” said TBI president Jack Caress. “With so many European multisport leaders already headed to Challenge Roth in July, it made perfect sense to create a summit where triathlon leaders can network, acquire new information to advance their business and the business of triathlon, and witness the incredible Challenge Roth on Sunday.”

In addition to Challenge Familyand Lapio, the conference is sponsored by Quintana Roo , Ashworth Awards and FinisherPix.
