The one, undisputed leader
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.

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.

SIMA & BRA RELEASE INDUSTRY BOOT CAMP SPEAKERS AND SEMINAR TOPICS

 

– Early Bird Registration Discount Ends Wednesday, October 20 –

 

ALISO VIEJO, CALIF. & WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, N.C. (October 20, 2010) – The Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) and the Board Retailers Association (BRA) are proud to announce the seminar topics and speakers for Industry Boot Camp. For the second time in the SIMA Boot Camp series, SIMA will be joining forces with BRA to bring both manufacturers and retailers together for two days of educational seminars, speakers, candid discussions, and valuable networking time.

 

The event will be held on November 8 - 9, 2010, at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, Calif. All levels of employees from any department who would benefit from the panel discussions, seminars and industry networking time are highly encouraged to report for duty!

 

"In planning out speakers and seminar topics for our Industry Boot Camp summit, SIMA & BRA have endeavored to create a meaningful forum for education and inspiration," says Doug Palladini, SIMA President and Vans' VP of Marketing.

 

"We want surf industry manufacturers and retailers to gain insight into current issues, as well as those of tomorrow and beyond, and to leave everyone better equipped to succeed in 2011."

 

Each day will begin at 9:00 A.M. with an Opening Congress where retailers and manufacturers will gather together to hear from a keynote speaker. After the conclusion of the Opening Congress, attendees will have their choice of which three of the six seminars they would like to attend and participate in each of the two days.

 

There will be two separate seminar rooms happening simultaneously and Boot Camp attendees will have the opportunity to hand pick which seminars would benefit their business the most.

 

"BRA and SIMA have come together again and expanded on last year's Industry Boot Camp, to provide an expanded two-day program comprised of a wide-range of educational seminars and networking opportunities for both manufacturers and retailers," said Duke Edukas, Co-Chair of the Board Retailers Association and Co-Owner of Surfside Sports.

 

"Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from leading industry experts addressing a variety of subjects facing our businesses, from lessons in entrepreneurship to marketing and sales and product development."
