Surf Expo Industry Party to Return to Typhoon Lagoon
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 May, 2013 : - - Surf Expo is once again partnering with Sanuk to invite each and every one of its 15,000 tradeshow attendees to the industry party of the summer at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon on Saturday, September 7. The Typhoon Lagoon Industry Party was a highlight of the 2012 show—and this year’s event will continue to raise the bar.
"Last year’s event brought thousands of industry retailers, manufacturers and media together for a night of fun and a surf contest in the world’s largest wave pool to help promote the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association’s Stokes Me humanitarian charity initiative," says Senior Marketing Manager Jill Knowles. "With the increase in attendee pre-registration we’re seeing, we are expecting a higher turnout this year."
According to Michael Minter, Sanuk Global Marketing Director, "We are thrilled to be once again teaming up with Surf Expo on this amazing event. Not only was last year's Typhoon Lagoon Party a tremendous amount of fun for all involved, but it also served as timely reminder of how valuable it is to spend quality time together with our industry and retail partners. Any opportunity to relax, have fun, share laughs, and break away from the pace of business we're all in is a good one. We look forward to seeing everyone there again this year!"
Don’t delay: Register today for what’s shaping up to be the best Surf Expo September show ever.
Encompassing more than 215,000 net square feet of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, Surf Expo's September 2012 tradeshow was roundly praised as the most successful in years, with more than 11,400 buyers attending the show during its three-day run.
