DANA POINT, California - In just two weeks time, October 3-4, 2018, the SUPIA (Standup Paddle Industry Association) is set to host their 6th annual Leadership Summit addressing the most pressing issues facing our Paddlesports Industry today. Together, as Industry Leaders, the SUPIA Summit will gather collective knowledge to not only solve for these challenges, but also present solutions on how to thrive in today's new retail environment.

This special education/networking event is open to both SUPIA Members and Non-Members (with discounted membership built in price) in the SUP Industry.

The goal of this summit is to help build collaborative dialogue. By taking a leadership role in addressing these issues, Retailers, Manufacturers and Service Providers can not only improve their individual businesses, but also help strengthen the SUP Industry as a whole. All are welcomed and encouraged to attend! Also, new this year at the Summit there will be a Silent Auction.
