Sourcing Snow is the industry’s only snow exclusive sourcing destination. When suppliers are looking for the materials to set their product apart, they come straight to the source, Sourcing Snow. There was an increase in Asian suppliers exhibiting at the 2015 Sourcing Snow, with trade groups CIEC and TITAS advocating its members to attend. New exhibitors included Hong Kong’s Th Zipper and EU Design, Taiwan’s Universe Fashion Accessories, Vietnam’s Blue Saigon, and Chinese supplier Keensun. Now in its third year, the 2015 Sourcing Snow welcomed a brand new seminar lineup to the area as well; specifically to help inspire and educate attendees on topics such as tools and techniques, creation and protection and many more.

“Sourcing Snow has given us the opportunity to interact with a broad range of snow sport and lifestyle brands. The casual atmosphere lends itself well to not only meet with apparel manufacturers, but also other raw material suppliers who have the same eco-friendly approach as Sympatex.” Stephen Kerns, VP & GM, Sympatex

"The SIA Snow Show is the best time of the year! You get to see all the new technology coming out, you get to see all the sales reps you have relationships with, and then right around the corner you get to test everything out at the On-Snow Demo at Copper." Katy Graul, Ski Brokers, Fraser, CO
"For me, the Show is so much more than just a product presentation, it's a true breeding ground for ideas and inspiration. The forums, the marketing information, and the opportunities for retailers like me to network with each other has become a major feature for me." Teddy Schiavoni, Summit Ski Shop, Framingham, MA
"It's the place to go to see as many manufacturing companies as you can see under one roof at one time. It’s the latest and greatest of everything that’s going to be coming through the stores in the next six to eight months. I think people do a disservice to themselves by not going." Susan Woody, sales rep, Turtle Fur
"This Show is so important because it's the preview for what’s to come; it's the big picture. You can talk to the people that are in sales, product development, we can tell you plans for next year as well as help retailers with their buy so they become informed and make better decisions for their business." Ryan Green, Nordic Division Manager, Rossignol
"From an international perspective, I can see that the whole US snow sports industry is truly a community. Everybody's here and you can see that it's a family." Sigi Rumphuber, Product Designer/Engineer, G3
"This whole business is based on relationships, so if you don’t get that face to face time it's difficult to continue those relationships or build new ones. And of course we have to be at the Show because it gives a chance for everyone to see the full line, and to talk about any problems or potential opportunities." Josh Roberts, VP, Nitro Snowboards
