Shay Update: SIA 2009!
26 Jan, 2009
Update: Here are the write-ups from each day at SIA 2009.
It’s that time of year again, SIA (Snowsports Industries America) when the snowboarders and skiers leave the mountains to come to Vegas. Its when the next years gear is released, critiqued and checked out by those in the industry. Even in tough economic times, the snowboard industry is passionate and this carries the progression of our gear further without limitations.
This is my 4th SIA I’ll be attending and first time attending as press on behalf of this blog. Shayboarder.com has proved that a woman can write about snowboarding on experience, knowledge and covering both male/female sides of the sport.
I’ll be out in Vegas from Monday to Friday, meeting with companies as I represent this site and having some fun along the way. I enjoy SIA because it’s really the one time of year I get to see old friends, meet people I email back and forth with, and be surrounded by gear that makes me happy.
I’ll have access to reading emails all week since they go straight to my blackberry but replying might take longer unless it’s a SIA issue. So any advice/questions, please expect a couple days for me to return the email.
Here’s a list of companies I’ll be meeting with:
-C3 (Union, Coal, Defcon, Capita)
-Mission 6/ Monix
-We’ll see who else
I’ll be doing updates from the show with photos and video as well as twitter updates with some thoughts along the way.
If you have a specific company/product you want more info on, leave a comment here for me and I’ll work my best to check them out and get more info while I’m in Vegas.
