Surf Expo is proud to announce Surf Expo Connect, a virtual space to connect brands with retailers and media, taking place September 16-18, 2020 with online access to the Surf Expo Connect platform continuing until November 20, 2020. [Please note: This is a change from the original Surf Expo date of September 10-12.]

Due to the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing the community together safely and successfully is currently not feasible. Though disappointing that we won’t be able to meet in-person, Surf Expo is committed to offering new ways to keep the industry connected and make sure business can still be conducted.

The Surf Expo Connect Virtual Event will enable you to host the industry in your virtual booth, showcasing your product lines and news and more on your own customizable page. Retailers and media will be able to search and discover your current inventory, upcoming for fall/winter, and new for spring/summer 2021.
