We've also been more interested in our snowboard companies then we are trade shows.
It took a year of nonstop work to build the 2017 show. Hours on the phone daily all Summer long, travel, and lots and lots of dollars out of our pockets. Sleepless nights, and more stress than was healthy.
This year, we're far too busy working on our own projects to run a show.
P&L was rewarding, but ultimately our responsibilities are to our own young companies. Real friendships came out of the show. Almost everybody I've spoken to is collaborating on a project with people they connected with through the show.
There's a huge opportunity right now for a snowboarding specialty show, but we're not going to be the ones to do it this year.
We're truly grateful to all of you for your support, even to those of you who didn't join us. Many insights were gleaned over all those endless hours of phone calls. It's incredible that I can pick up my phone and call any of you for advice, a ride to the airport, a pep talk, or a beer.
Company profiles and contact information for all the 2017 show participants will remain here on the site. Support companies that you truly believe contribute something positive to snowboarding. Every dollar is a vote cast for the kind of world you want to live in.
We're sharing a little spot Downtown during the new OR Winter show, January 26-27.

See you in Denver,
