Since the inception of Executive Edition, I only need 1 stop

As a retailer in the surf industry for the past 21 years, I have had to use multiple sources to stay informed to the news within surf. Since the inception of the Executive Edition of Shop-Eat-Surf.com, I need only one stop. Thanks for providing such a valuable tool to all of us in the industry. Shop-Eat-Surf is a must read for all of our staff at Maui Nix.

Our fall and winter show, from January 18 - 20, 2012, was a success.

 

We had just under 1,500 attendees. Of these attendees, there were 750 retailers representing 400 retail locations across Canada. The show's square footage was 85,000 square feet -- nearly double our size from last January, up from 58,000 square feet last January.

 

And there were 125 booths housing more than 300 brands. The expanded size of the show floor impacted the tighter flow of previous shows, but we've received nothing but positive feed back from the majority of brands were consistently booked throughout the show.

 

Beyond the show hours, we had a busy week of social events including a media reception and opening night happy hour on Wednesday Night which included an art show curated by Comune and a musical showcase sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon.

 

In partnership with Quiksilver, we hosted over 150 people for a night of riding and refreshments at Grouse Mountain on Thursday night and packed the house at Fortune Sound Club for Friday's closing party.

 

Here's our video recap:
