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.

The Outdoor Retailer Show was even busier the second day.

 

By happy hour time on Friday, it was tough to walk through the halls. Patagonia had a concert inside its booth, Billabong hosted Donovan Frankenreiter live at its branded room, and The North Face had a huge happy hour for VF brands with key athletes giving presentations in a giant camping tent-like booth.

 

The party of the evening went to Teva, which hosted an 80’s theme party with an 80’s cover band from LA. The party was packed until 2 a.m.

 

Saturday's OR crowd didn't heat up until mid-to-late morning, with many brands using coffee machines to lure new buyers.

 

Overall, there was a consensus that a lot of action sports brands are using SUP as a vehicle to tap into the outdoor market and vice versa. I noticed a lot of outdoor brands with surf and SUP graphics on their booths.

 

And a lot of the action sports brands showcased technical apparel that can be worn not just in the surf, but also on bikes, as well as line extensions geared toward a slightly older consumer.

 

We’ll have lots of brand updates in coming weeks from all of our interviews at the show.
