Big thanks go to IMBA member companies Icebreaker, Osprey, Polar Bottle and Green Guru for helping to raise more than $5,000 for IMBA at the Outdoor Retailer trade show, held earlier this month in Salt Lake City. Following that success, IMBA is preparing for Interbike, the bicycle industry's premier gathering in North America (Las Vegas, NV, Sept. 19-21).

The fourth-annual IMBA Industry Leadership Breakfast will be held on Sept. 20. Retailers, brands and all Interbike attendees are invited to "arrive tired and leave inspired" by updates on new initiatives and success stories from around the globe. Breakfast will be served in Venetian Ballroom G starting at 7 a.m., with the program running from 7:30-8:45 a.m.

All breakfast attendees receive a free coffee mug while supplies last. No RSVP needed; all are welcome. Thanks to Interbike for sponsoring the breakfast!
