About the Show

Since 1976, Surf Expo is The Global Watersports and
Beach Lifestyle Tradeshow.

Since we can’t meet in-person this summer, we we've created this virtual space for our communities to connect, conduct business, network and learn. Surf Expo Connect is where the community of brands, retailers and media unite together.

Welcome to Surf Expo Connect

On behalf of our entire show team, we welcome you to the very first virtual gathering of the surf, watersports and beach lifestyle industries.

Everyone has a Surf Expo story, whether it’s the industry veterans or the young team rider making his first trip to our bi-annual industry gathering. The ability to come together face to face at Surf Expo has built relationships, launched brands and jettisoned careers over the years. Unfortunately, this year we have all been thrown a curve with the pandemic and with safety front of mind we are not able to meet face to face. Like many of you who were forced to adapt to a new retail landscape over the last 6 months, we are excited to be able to pivot and provide you a new virtual marketplace in Surf Expo Connect. While nothing replaces the ability to meet in person, our online event will allow continued connection between buyers and sellers. Our goal is to promote new products, brands, educate and bring our community together online.

We wish you all a safe and successful 2021 and look forward to hearing from you on how we can improve our virtual platform going forward.

Until we can see each other in person soon stay safe.
