iceBike* 2023 South opens its doors tomorrow, ACT to be joined again by new service partner Tyl by NatWest

Posted on 8 Mar 2023

ACT at iceBike* 2023 With the North edition having closed its doors only a couple of days ago, we are again readying ourselves to meet with members at the South edition of iceBike* 2023 at The Tobacco Dock in London tomorrow (Thursday 9th March) and Friday 10th March.

Many retailers new and old visited us at The ACT stand over the weekend, finding out how they can maximise the benefits of their membership and also learn about what Tyl by NatWest, our new card payments provider, are able to offer - nearly all of which finding out they can save on their costs!

Don't forget Tyl by NatWest will also be delivering the "Open Banking & What It Means for Cycle Businesses" seminar between midday and 12.20pm each day, so do listen in to find out how current trends and changes will be benefiting your business now and in the future.

In addition account managers will be present to speak to retailers and answer your questions on the ACT stand, as well as staff from The ACT on hand to answer any queries about all of our other services.

We will also be joined by Spokes People, our Cytech training providers based in Milton Keynes, there to discuss your training needs and talk all things Cytech.

If not done so already, you can register to attend here: https://www.icebike.co.uk/

We'll see you there for iceBike* South edition!
