2013 SIA Booth Of The Year Nominees

2013 TransWorld Business SIA Booth Of The Year

Each year we patrol every aisle and corner of the SIA Snow Show floor, scouring the snowboard booths for the standouts that best embody the spirit of the calling-- namely, relentlessly striving to innovate and progress in a creative manner that sells more snow sliding fun. The brands that generate the most creative booths are often the ones doing the most to progress the industry through better product, marketing campaigns, and messages that convey not just technical aspects, but the radness of the ride. Using the selection criteria of concept, accessibility, creativity, awesomeness, and product (CACA-P), we poll retailers at the show and select the top picks for the year’s best booths, and then open up the voting to the industry to choose which brand did the best job of taking its presentation to the next level at this year’s Snow Show.

Write In: Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate

Rome took its booth design to the next level this year as Styk and the crew from Dept of Energy (DOE) worked with the Rome team on design, spearheaded by Grady Skelton, to create a modular booth, built by Greenspace in Portland, that packs into itself and can be tweaked for shows and years to come, not to mention packing some nooks and crannies that proved a hit amongst retailers. In fact, the Rome booth was such a hit that we added it in as a nominee at the last minute based on emails we got from buyers. We apologize for the lack of a video, but thought we’d keep this PG.
