ASR, the leading surf, skate, swim, snow, moto, wake, lifestyle and street wear industry event, returns to San Diego from September 4th-6th (Thursday-Saturday). Retailers from around the world flock to ASR for a first glimpse at new lines from the industry’s strongest emerging and established brands. Registration for ASR is free through the end of July online at ASRbiz.com.
 
“Retailers continue to rely on ASR to view new lines from their existing brands, pick up up-and-coming labels and write orders,” says Andy Tompkins, ASR Group Show Director. “We consistently hear from buyers that they just can’t afford to miss a single ASR event.”  Tompkins’ sentiments are supported by the fact that pre-registration for retailers is currently up 40% from this time last year.
 
ASR encourages everyone who plans to attend ASR this September to register today and avoid any additional fees. In addition, buyers who register before July 30th will receive their badges in the mail in advance of the show.  After July 30th, ASR registration will continue online with a fee of $35 for qualified buyers, $75 for distributors and $450 for all non-buyers including those in media sales or marketing, Publishers, consultants and non-exhibiting manufacturers.
