This year’s show will also continue a stronger presence of women’s categories, including brands like: O’Neill, Insight, Roxy, QSW, as well as the newcomer from …Lost, Black Sheep.
Another huge, new category for AGENDA is sandals. Brands such as Reef, OluKai, Freewaters, Sanuk and Cobian will be showing this August.
This year’s AGENDA Anaheim show in January brought over 5,000 attendees, including press and key retailers, Urban Outfitters, Zumiez, Tilly’s, PacSun, Karmaloop, Active Ride Shop and Zappos.com.
AGENDA Huntington Beach expects to surpass 7,000 attendees, as it will be AGENDA’s largest trade show to date, boasting an additional 30,000-sq.-ft. showroom space. The show will run concurrent with the 2011 Nike U.S. Open of Surfing, the largest action sports consumer festival in the world.
