For 54 years, the SIA SnowSports Trade Show has been one of the most important trade events for the snow sports industry and 37 of those years were in Las Vegas. Showcasing the latest trends, innovations, product lines and styles – the SIA Show is the one place where nearly 1000 brands are presented in an authentic environment that is powered by the passion and culture of our industry.  Being a member-owned, not-for-profit trade show, allows SIA to work with you and your brand(s), offering the best show experience with an authentic exhibit space, concentrated buyer attendance, media exposure and tools to help meet your business objectives.
