Surf Expo is held in September in Orlando, Florida and draws buyers from specialty stores across the U.S., the Caribbean, Central and South America and around the world. The show features approximately 2,500 booths of apparel and hardgoods and a full line-up of special events, including fashion shows, annual awards ceremonies, and demos. Average buyer and exhibitor turnout exceeds 27,600 attendees including retailers, exhibitors and media per show. The September 2016 Surf Expo will be held September 8-10, 2016
The addition of the kayak and canoe segment of watersports is a perfect fit for the Surf Expo summer marketplace, a show that connects manufacturers and retail buyers in the Surf, Wake, Wind, SUP, Skate, Swim, Resort, Footwear and Coastal Gift markets. The crossover business from water lifestyle categories currently found at Surf Expo will result in expanded business opportunities for both the kayak and canoe retailer and manufacturer.
