The uniqueness of IC-BEC is that it is both an exhibition and a conference – thus giving value-added and life-changing experiences to both exhibitors and non-exhibiting attendees. While exhibitors are showcasing their goods and services, interacting, and expanding their markets, non-exhibitors, but persons who are interested in business have the opportunity to learn from business leaders, experts, and coaches, of international repute, about what it takes to go into and succeed in business. As has already been noted, it is all about transformation; and there cannot be transformation without education and proper information.
