Business All-Stars TRIBE Gathering – in association with Virgin Media Business, October 2019


About TRIBE Gathering

Join us at October TRIBE Gathering in association with Virgin Media Business – where we’ll be sharing actionable insights that will help you overcome challenges and continue the success that you’ve been achieving.

These gatherings will also facilitate networking and collaboration among the AIBF Business All-Star TRIBE and supporters.


Tribe gatherings are primarily for our accredited Business All-Stars and AIBF supporters.

Occasionally we open up some spots to businesses who are not yet accredited.

If you’re the owner/director of a progressive and established business in Ireland then you can book the general admission ticket. We would love to have you at one of our gatherings. Please note places are limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.


If you’re brand new in business with little to no sales track record or a part-time business owner possibly in network marketing, MLM, or are just running a side project our tribe gatherings are not suitable for you at this time.
