What is International Bowl Expo?

International Bowl Expo (IBE) is the bowling industry's premier annual convention and trade show featuring exhibits of a wide array of products and services. IBE also presents dozens of interactive seminars and "how-to" workshops that aim to assist proprietors, leveraging the latest tools and technology to improve and strengthen their businesses. The sessions serve to educate and expose proprietors to the latest trends, marketing ideas, profit center opportunities and new information about the industry to help build their businesses and spread the excitement of bowling throughout their communities. Attendance at International Bowl Expo is open to any owner/operator (or their employees) of a bowling center, billiard center, pro shop, or industry partner. Domestic companies, manufacturers, suppliers, or distributors that do not own/operate (or are the designated representative of) a bowling center, billiard center or pro shop must purchase an exhibit booth to participate in International Bowl Expo.

  • Traditional Bowling Centers
  • Hybrid Bowling Centers
  • Family Entertainment Centers (FECs)
  • Boutique Bowling Establishments
  • Bowling Pro Shops
  • Bowling Coaches
  • Candlepin Centers

Attendees Say

  • It’s Electric! Being at Bowl Expo is a lot of fun, there are many innovative products out there. You get to see the next big thing before it becomes the big thing!

  • One of the best reasons I’d think to come is to visit with other bowling centers and seeing how their operations are and networking amongst one another.

  • I get a good pulse to where the industry is at and who the people are that are making those trends and taking the industry to where it’s headed.

  • I come to Bowl Expo to take a break from my business, get rejuvenated while meeting with other proprietors, and learn key things from the different educational seminars. It gets me back in the game. It gets me mentally thinking that I can do things better and I can do things differently at my center.

    North Bend Lanes – North Bend, OR

  • It’s a great way to find new ideas for your bowling center. Not necessarily if your center is struggling, but even if you have a booming bowling center! Not only can you offer stuff to other people, but there’s some great ideas out there that maybe you’ve just never thought of before.
