Feedback from the Show

Exhibitor Quotes

This show has been the single best trade show we’ve ever had, It was a combination of the quality of the buyers that we saw and the consistency of our booth being busy.
John Vance, President, Freewaters
It’s been a great show. Our goal is to have full, packed days- and that’s definitely been the case.
Charlie Setzler, President, Rusty
We do three sports categories- kiteboarding, wakeboarding and stand-up paddleboarding- and being in the heart of surf Expo allowed us to see a ton of buyers. Greg Kish, Sales and Marketing Director, Slingshot
Surf Expo has a great history and as a new brand and first-time exhibitor, we’ve had a great experience here. We’ve opened a ton of new doors and seeing all sorts of buyers, which is great for us.
Brandy Faber, Marketing Directory, Roark

Buyer Quotes

This show was very productive for us. We checked out some cool sunglass lines in the resort section and picked up a new line for our Michigan State Campus location. We would have never known of them unless we attended your show.
George Leichtweiss, Owner, Modern Skate & Surf
Surf Expo is the key strategy we use to market to the masses. I don’t know if there are a lot of industries who can count on one event that can get so many of their targeted market together in one place at one time.
Lisa Shinham, Wave Zone Skimboards
I thought the show was great - I spent all 3 days there from opening to close and wrote orders daily, especially with the smaller brands that don't have local reps.
Coco Tihanyi, President & Owner, Surf Diva, Inc.
We were able to place some great buys for our Spring 2014 season with some new and existing vendors. It was all very exciting!
