CeBIT & International Cycling Executives at Breakfast with the Bunch in 2016

CeBIT Australia will again be partnering with the International Cycling Executives (ICE) to host a unique networking and learning environment for members of the C-Suite business community who have a shared passion for riding a bike.

With the event moving back into the City in 2017 the format for our partnership with ICE has evolved. This year CeBIT will host three separate ‘invite only’ rides in the build up to the event. Each ride will conclude with an in-depth roundtable discussion over breakfast. C-level executives from many of Australia’s most important businesses will benefit from this unique environment to relax, share, benchmark and learn from their peers. Limited to just 16 riders the participants on each ride will get a unique chance to form lasting, meaningful and productive business relationships.
