SIBEC: Unique, Powerful and Productive

SIBEC creates an unparalleled way to do business. It gives the most effective format for businesses to exchange ideas, create partnerships and identify innovations, best practice, trends and business opportunities.

SIBEC takes place in an exclusive venue away from the pressures of the office allowing both buyers and suppliers to focus on the business at hand. It’s focused, productive and offers networking in both formal and relaxed environments to maximise every moment spent at the event.

SIBEC helps create active communities by acting as a catalyst to support the ‘global’ ideals of the sector in encouraging more people to become and remain physically active in our club and leisure centre facilities.

One-On-One Meetings

SIBEC UK brings together UK's key purchasing decision makers and senior executives from the local public sector with prominent domestic suppliers to participate in a series of one-on-one meetings. Both buyers and suppliers get to choose who they would like to meet with and are each given a schedule of meetings.

The Process

  • Buyers and suppliers will receive a password to access the event website where they may post their company profile and contact details. Buyers' profiles will include details of projected spending budgets and other valuable market information. Both buyers and suppliers have the opportunity to select who they would like to meet with.
  • A customised meeting schedule is then drawn up for each company based on both buyer & vendor requests.
  • Each buyer is allocated a meeting table in a ballroom where all meetings take place over one and a half days. Each meeting lasts 20 minutes.

Networking Program

Throughout the event, attendees meet senior executives, operators and suppliers during meals and other planned networking activities.  This fosters communication and cross sharing of ideas, best practices and future business relationships.
