Seminar schedule announced for Icebike 2023

Madison has announced its seminar schedule for Icebike 2023.

The schedule covers a wide array of topics and includes talks from guest presenters such as industry veteran Jay Townley.

This year’s Icebike will be split across two venues and two dates, within one week – one in the North of England and one in the South.

Icebike North will take place on Sunday 5th and Monday 6th March at the Manchester Velodrome. This will be followed by Icebike South on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th March at the Tobacco Dock in London.

Visitors can attend Townley’s video seminars to learn about evolving multi-national American brands as well as what the bike shop of the future will look like. Find more detail on these topics below and submit questions to Townley in advance via this link:
