Sunny San Diego in January?! Count us in!
We’re gearing up to attend the second annual CABDA West, January 15th-16th at the Del Mar Racetrack outside of San Diego. We’ve sent our UBI team to CABDA in Chicago before, and have to admit we’re more than a little thrilled that they’ve added a west coast version in sunshine-land.
What’s In Store At CABDA West: Bike Gear and Industry Trends
CABDA stands for Chicago Area Bicycle Dealers Association, but this show offers a whole lot more than Chicago-specific material. Topics at this year’s show include:
- Shop Sales & Retail Strategies
- The Future of eBikes
- Wheel Building & Technology
- Tech Clinics
- Biking Nutrition
- and more...
From new mechanic techniques to top bike gear, the expo showcases the latest and greatest the industry has to offer. We’re looking forward to checking out the clinics from Shimano (setting up their latest Di2 systems), SRAM (an intro to their new GRX), Rotor America, and of course checking out other exhibitor booths in the expo hall.
Check out the full seminar schedule here.
This year, CABDA West will have two additional exhibit halls (making the expo 70% larger than 2019), more food, keynote speakers, and indoor/outdoor demo tracks. That means more fun for us!
Staying Current on Bike Industry Trends
Heading to CABDA is always a great opportunity for us to stay up-to-date on the latest technology and trends in the bicycle industry, and talk shop with other businesses and shops from all around the North America. Participating in expos like CABDA is one of the ways we keep our curriculum top notch, hobnob with UBI partners who help us offer the latest and greatest, and stay current in our continuing education seminars.
If you’re planning to be there, stop by Booth #442 in O’Brien Hall and learn about the classes we’re offering in 2020. Plus, we’ll have some free UBI swag to give away (great for UBI alumni who want to commemorate their time in bike school!).
We hope to see you in San Diego!
