In 2015, the SIMA Insights Committee was challenged by the SIMA Board of Directors to conduct a consumer study in order to give the membership and industry true insight into the size and make up of the consumer base that surfs, buys surf products and/or are interested in surfing. What better way to know who and how to target when producing, selling, merchandising and marketing your brand’s products than to know who your consumer base is and what effects their buying habits?

The SIMA Consumer Insights Study is now complete and ready to be shared. You and your team are invited to join us for Consumer Insights Study Boot Camp on Wednesday, March 1 from 8:30 – 11:30 am. SIMA members are eligible to receive the study at no cost, non-members have the opportunity to purchase the full study for $1,250. Learn more about the study here

This is an event you won’t want to miss as you’ll not only get a first-hand look at how big the overall surf-inspired consumer market is, but you’ll also be privy to the make up of the consumer profiles that define the surf consumer – including demographics, psychographics and buying behavior. 

Register now for this exclusive opportunity to preview the key insights from this unique Consumer Insights Study and learn what it all means for your business.
