Billabong Brands Preview Fall 2013 Collections In Laguna

While last week had thousands of trade show attendees freezing their tails off in the frigid climates at Agenda NYC and SLC’s Outdoor Retailer, the warm and sunny coastline of Laguna Beach played host to a special preview of Billabong's Fall 2013 lines, including brands such as Element, VonZipper, RVCA, Xcel, Kustom Footwear, Plan B, Dakine, and Sector 9. For the third year in a row, select retailers from across the country were flown out to enjoy a 4-night stay at the Surf and Sand Resort, and get some one-on-one time with the participating brands without the noise and chaos that a typical tradeshow produces. We got the invite to come check it out, experience some of Billabong's top-notch hospitality, and get a sneak peak at some new products for Fall 2013.
