The health of SBFE’s employees and the participants at SBFE’s 2022 Annual Member Meeting is of great concern to SBFE. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, SBFE may put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Prior to the 2022 Annual Member Meeting, SBFE will keep attendees informed on the protocols.

What is an SBFE licensee?

An SBFE licensee is an organization that pays a fee to SBFE and receives SBFE data on a recurring basis in exchange.  Licensees develop SBFE data-driven products and services exclusively for SBFE members with the data they receive.
