Last week we attended the Surf Expo in Orlando and enjoyed making great connections with past and present clients along with meeting new contacts. There were many great seminars at the expo ranging from merchandising to website and social media along with runways of the latest gear showcased by models.
The Surf Expo is the longest running surf, skate, swim and beach lifestyle trade show in the world. It is produced in January and September in Orlando, Florida and draws buyers from specialty stores across the U.S., the Caribbean, Central and South America and around the world. The show features approximately 2,600 booths of apparel and hardgoods and a full line-up of special events, including fashion shows, annual awards ceremonies, and demos. Average buyer and exhibitor turnout exceeds 26,000 attendees including retailers, exhibitors and media per show. The January 2016 Surf Expo will be held January 14-16, 2016.
