Urban Expositions to Develop G-Summit Concept in Action Sports Industry

Urban Expositions (Kennesaw, Georgia) announces plans to develop its G-Summit Business to Business Key accounts gathering and conference in 2011.

A Uniquely Productive Format:

Urban Expositions is pleased to announce G-Summit - a unique business to business invitation-only gathering of the leaders in the Action Sports Industry. This three-day event will be designed to bring together the most important buyers and sellers of surf, skate, snow, wake and other key Action Sports product categories at a five star Las Vegas resort hotel. G-Summit will foster highly productive meetings between a select group of buyers and suppliers in a casual, relaxed and social setting that as proven in other industries, truly lays the foundation for strong and lasting business partnerships.

This turnkey event will be crafted and shaped via the industry leaders, therefore promising proper event timing and maximum benefit to all invited attendees.

For the last six months, Urban Expositions with the help of 3C Consulting, has been obtaining feedback from the industry on the G-Summit gathering concept with positive results. "Urban Expositions and 3C Consulting continue to gather feedback through an online survey designed to promote input from all corners of the action sports industry." Survey can be found at:

“ The goal is to create an event based on the needs of the Industry and its key accounts. By adding a summit-style program, not only can retailers fulfill their order writing in a professional atmosphere but they will also have the ability to communicate with today’s Industry leaders and help shape the future of Action Sports”  says Chris Conway of 3C consulting.

“The Action Sports Industry has always been known for its progressive and creative thinking. It seems redundant to me to build an event and “hope” the vendors and attendees like it. Why not create an event based on the actual needs expressed by the Industry players themselves?” asks Conway. “Great customer service, proper setting, timing and caring about the future of Action Sports is the goal of the G-Summit”

Urban Expositions and 3C Consulting are in the process of developing the details of the G-Summit and would like to hear from you. Please take a few minutes and complete the survey above (all data is confidential).
