Keeps me in the loop
Keeps me in the loop

Being an Executive Edition member allows me to not miss a beat when it comes to the Industry business news. Definitely keeps me in the loop plus goes great with my morning joe.

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.

BRA University and Surf Expo seminar series

By Press Releases
July 07, 2011 3:34 PM

Press Release:

 

With so much change in the retail world and the action sports landscape, Surf Expo—our partner since BRA's inception— remains the place to check in and check the pulse of the industry. And with the trade show only a few months away, we'd like to announce two educational series that will take place in Orlando.

 

The first is our new BRA University series! A four-hour session titled "Converting Online Traffic to Foot Traffic: Bringing Business to Your Door" will teach you best practices to implement social media, video, a virtual storefront, and the optimal website to bring your brick and mortar store to the Web.

 

Following this info-packed morning you can join us as we hop a shuttle to Surf Expo's Demo Day for an afternoon of discovering new products and networking with other retailers and manufacturers. BRA University is in session Wednesday, September 7, from 9am-1pm. Cost is only $50 for BRA members and $75 for non-members.

 

We're continuing the Online theme for our Surf Expo seminar sessions, which take place at 11:30 and 2:30 daily at "The Stage" on the show floor. Learn how to shoot and edit your product photos, how to implement video, how to interact with your community through a social community and much more.

 

Check Surf Expo's Schedule of Events for more details. These seminars are free to attend and require no reservation, but you must be a Surf Expo attendee. Register for Surf Expo here.

 

Surf Expo's goal is to make sure the show is continuously relevant, timed right and offers unique and powerful opportunities for its retail attendees. We encourage you to take two minutes to fill out a survey to help guide the future of the show.  For more information on the Surf Expo, visit www.surfexpo.com.
