Within a short time the action sports industry has grown into a global influencer on mainstream brands, retailers, designers, and those alike worldwide. But although the industry has progressed tremendously since its beginnings, EXSIC’s which stands for The Extreme Sports Industry Connection, claims that there is a key element missing that is needed to move action sports business to the next level.
So what is it that EXSIC’s 22 year old Founder, Paul Heil III, quoted as “The American kid who grew up but never grew out of action sports“ is looking to promote within the industry?
The young founder currently based in Bratislava, Slovakia of all places aims to build a bridge from the US market to the European market via EXSIC‘s action sports conference Skate Surf Snow meant to be held this November 4th in Budapest Hungary.
Paul claims it is such events as Skate Surf Snow that plays a key role in keeping the industry educated with personal case studies and experiences shared from industry leaders and face to face networking that will push the industry to the next level.
The conference also hosts some fun aspects, like being held at an indoor skate park with a concluding local skate tournament, followed by a networking party in downtown Budapest.
Besides hosting unique action sports networking events, Paul has built a solid online action sports business community via EXSIC Memberships, you can check out more on this at the EXSIC Blog – www.exsicblog.com.
