SnowSports Industries America (SIA) contacted SNEWS® to let us know that we erred slightly in our last news story on Winter Market. We stated that pre-registration numbers from Outdoor Retailer mean nothing because they are free, and lumped SIA into that statement too. In fact, SIA charges a $20 pre-reg fee and $35 onsite to help “ensure buyers will attend the show.” SIA reported that it currently has “more than 3,500 paid, qualified buyers” pre-registered and that it continues to average approximately 100 new pre-registrations a day. SIA has also reported that this year’s show is 10 percent larger with 387,200 square feet, with 125 new exhibitors accounting for approximately 50,000 square feet of the space.
