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.
