Highlights from Surf Expo September 2016
The Surf Expo September 2016 show kicked off with a bang in Orlando Florida with over 2,500 booths, 9,500 plus store fronts and over 27,600 attendees.
We had an incredible show! We caught up with old friends, made many new ones and managed to create an amazing energetic floor where business gets done and boy did we all succeed!
Wednesday kicked off with the Surf Expo Board Demo Day
Supporting the Stand Up Paddle, Wakeboard, Kayak & Canoe markets, Board Demo Day allows the retailer to ‘try it before you buy it’. The event gives exhibitors valuable face to face time with key retailers, and the opportunity to demo new boards, paddles and equipment.
Surf Summit 2
The industry’s second ever Summit to accelerate the future of surfing outside the ocean.As we see it, the vision is clear: build authentic, sustainable and profitable surf experiences to grow the surf industry and provide the mental, physical and emotional stoke of surfing to those that do not have access to the ocean. To do this, the Summit will gather the industry’s top minds including surf park and surf pool developers, investors, operators, suppliers, academics, experts and athletes to discuss the opportunities and challenges related to the development of man-made surf destinations.
