ORLANDO, Fla. — After a difficult holiday season, buyers were cautious at Surf Expo, hoping that bright color and prints would entice consumers this summer.
The show ran Jan. 11 to 13 at the Orange County Convention Center here, with 200 new exhibitors from a total of 1,200, and 10,000 preregistered buyers, officials said. Apparel was 70 percent of product, from core surf lines to swimwear and "Resort" and "Boutique" areas of sportswear and young contemporary lines.
