PRLog - Dec. 12, 2011 - CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Carlsbad, CA – SnowSports Industries America (SIA) and TransWorld Business have partnered to create a custom pre-Show publication for its annual SIA Snow Show, built specifically for the snowboarding community. Titled, The Guide, this newly collaborated publication will help to better engage the snowboard industry, and more specifically, core snowboard retailers, with pertinent Show information, new trends, up-to-date research, feature articles, and more.
“We’re excited about this new partnership venture with TransWorld Business – producing a pre-Show publication with TransWorld will offer a unique perspective specific to the snowboard segment,” said SIA President David Ingemie. “TransWorld’
SIA board member and 686 President Michael Akira West also commented about The Guide. “This is a resource that the snowboard side of the business has needed for years. Retailers and manufacturers alike will utilize this tool to plan how to best maximize their time at the Show and to explore some of the events happening in Denver. It’s been a long time coming and we’re excited to participate.”
The custom publication will be distributed both in print and digitally to over 30,000 snowboard shops, manufacturers, executives and SIA members in early January, prior to the Show, which runs January 26 through 29 in Denver, Colorado, and continues with the On-Snow Demo in Winter Park and Devil's Thumb Ranch January 30-31. The digital edition will be available online at siasnowshow.com via a browser based reader, and additionally, on its own application for the iPad, through TransWorld’s proprietary iPad magazine platform, and downloadable at no cost to the consumer. Hard copies will be available on-site at the show as well. The Guide will feature 20-pages of highly informative snowboard industry content.
“Partnering with SIA to create The Guide makes perfect sense for TransWorld Business,” said TransWorld Business Editor In Chief Mike Lewis. “The Guide will be key to getting snowboard retailers more informed and through the door of this year’s Snow Show.”
