Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Press Release:

San Juan Capistrano, CA (April 6, 2010) – Action Sports Retailer, ASR, announces 2011 dates with January 13th-15th as the dates for the ASR Access event and August 18th-20th for ASR Marketplace. The selected dates and the event’s number of days, back to three, come in response to the industry’s evolving sales and marketing needs. Earlier dates for the January event will allow for fall line breaks, while providing brands with the opportunity to wrap-up summer season sales.

“ASR’s role is to provide an effective and convenient platform for retailers and exhibitors to conduct business. So utilizing show dates that best serve the industry’s evolving needs is imperative,” says Andy Tompkins, VP of ASR. “The 2011 Access event will now come on the wake of retail holiday season momentum, when dealers have an accurate view of what’s trending and are ready to buy.”

Holding the event over three days allows for more opportunities for networking, time to attend business seminars and will make it easier for International buyers, distributors and exhibitors to make the trip to San Diego. Retailers attend the winter edition ASR event to see a full spectrum of product as they are making final purchase decisions for summer and previewing fall. ASR’s 2011 dates have been endorsed by SIMA, IASC, and BRA as a beneficial time for the industry’s buyers and sellers to connect.

Major ASR events will continue to be held in San Diego, CA. The upcoming ASR Marketplace for spring/summer buying will take place August 13-15, 2010. Go to ASRBiz.com to learn more about attending upcoming events.
