"The TBI conference was a great platform for us as newcomers to the triathlon business to meet and network with established players in the field."

"TBI was a fantastic opportunity for global cross fertilization of ideas and thinking across all key areas of the sport. Superb creative facilitation of networking. A must attend event!"
