Earlier this year, we attended the 1st of its kind – the IASC industry summit at Camp Woodward West. The importance of this event was all the top brands and manufacturers in the industry to discuss key issues such as the creation of more skateparks, environmental/sustainability – going green, how to make ASR better, dealer/shop issues, government regulations, and so much more. The initial speaker the first night was Pierre, owner of Sole Technology. The highlight though was a guy from Harley Davidson who helped turn their company around years ago - his presentation was very inspiring and fostered a lot of thinking about the similarities between chartering a Harley Davidson and skating your favorite brand. The 3 day event was largely successful and we enjoyed skating, bowling, and other fun activities, and most importantly networking.
