Supplier Display 

Each supplier is assigned a table for the one-to-one meetings and buyers will visit their table at the pre-scheduled time. In addition, suppliers are invited to bring one product or piece of equipment to display at or near their tables at an additional cost.


Networking opportunities

The foundation of SIBEC is based upon a meetings forum that creates the ideal networking environment. All delegates  stay at the same resort and attend with their mind focused on business and the desire to derive maximum benefit from the event.

Additional activities built into the meetings' program, a casual networking event, meals, receptions and evening activities all ensure that you will meet with your key targets and have the opportunity to develop further business relationships.
