Retail Advisory Panel

Our Retail Advisory Panel partners come from all types of retail and all walks of life. Together, they touch upon every category of product offered on the show floor. They partner with our Buyer Relations Team by suggesting ways to improve from the buyer perspective through physical plan flow and  event and educational program ideas. They also help our sales team identify the freshest brands, newest products and trends. The RAP is a great cross-section of attendees that epitomize the vision and necessities of the buyers at Surf Expo.

We genuinely appreciate their partnership, helping deliver the best show we can to all the great attendees of Surf Expo. Stoked for the support team!
