The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Surf Expo Swim Section Boasts More than 250 Lines This September

By
August 13, 2010 6:43 AM

Boardsport and Beach Retailers from the U.S., Caribbean, South and Central America Ready to Buy

Still a month before the September 10-12, 2010 show, Surf Expo announced today that its swim section is near sell-out status.

With more than 250 women’s, juniors’ and childrens lines, it’s the deepest offering retailers have seen at Surf Expo in recent years. New lines like Original Penguin, WeSC and Seafolly are joining hot swim brands like Malibu Dream Girl, Sunsets and surf shop mainstays like L*Space, Quiksilver, Billabong and O’Neill, to create an offering that spans the gamut of the coastal marketplace.

“The swim industry has always made Surf Expo a priority. Swimwear is a product every waterfront shop and resort needs,” says Show Director Roy Turner.

“With a large buying contingency from the Caribbean, South and Central America at our September show added to the mix of retailers from across the country -- and retailers buying from both action sports and resort and boutique retailers -- manufacturers can expect to be busy non-stop.”

Space in the Swim section is almost sold out! To get your line in, contact Account Executive Jane Preston today at 813.645.9694 or jpreston@surfexpo.com.

Here is just a small sampling of the swim lines set to exhibit at Surf Expo next month:
