PRIMEtime & PowerHall

ICBA is where vendors and stores truly connect.

With prequalified buyers at the ICBA Retail Conference, you maximize your revenues. ICBA features extraordinary opportunities to increase business, strengthen existing relationships and create new ones. You’ll discover a markedly different atmosphere than at a typical tradeshow. ICBA has a strong business-focused, upscale and exclusive feel. Buyers are not aimlessly wandering tradeshow aisles, pausing here and there for a moment. Every participant at the ICBA Retail Conference  has somewhere to go and someone to meet with. Meeting with you is their destination.

What is ICBA PRIMEtime?
One-to-one meetings improve relationships, build trust and provide the personal connection that empowers your business to grow. ICBA preschedules private PRIMEtime meetings (choose 20-,30- or 40-minute sessions) and PowerHall 10-minute meetings with retailers who buy and sell your products and services.

Store and vendor commitments to ICBA makes face-to-face meetings possible. ICBA assists buyers with free airfare and free registration.
