Tradeshow Season is Upon Us!

Tradeshow season is upon us! We’re gearing up for a long month of travel and can’t wait to see you all at Agenda (January 5-6) in Long Beach, Surf Expo (January 9-11) in Orlando and SIA Snow Show (January 28-February 3) at Copper Mountain.  All events bring retailers, exhibitors and media together, and a Board Retailers Association presence always proves to be an awesome opportunity make connections, catch up and chat about the industry and recruit new members.
