Changes for Snowbound Expo 2023, the ‘direct to consumer’ snow sports event

Posted on

Following the phenomenal success of Snowbound Expo in 2022, (the first expo since Raccoon Media Group acquired the Boston Ski & Snowboard Expo), plans for the 2023 edition have been released as Early Bird visitor tickets are released. 

The 2023 Expo will take place at a new location, Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) and will be held earlier in the year, November 3-5, 2023 with a view to increasing accessibility for visitors and participating brands and resorts. The change in venue increases the floor space by 56% to over 160,000 square foot and offers more opportunity for hosting networking events and entertaining customers all in a vibrant part of the city, The Seaport. The 2023 Expo is expected to welcome 120+ Exhibitors and 25,000+ visitors over the three days. 

With a significant focus on product innovation, increasing participation and encouraging a more ecologically friendly industry the Expo will provide the perfect location for new product launches, innovative releases in snowsports tech, thought leading advances in eco travel and provides the opportunity to communicate and sell direct to an engaged and bought-in audience. 

Managing Director Stephen Morgan said: “We’re stoked to be heading back to Boston in 2023 to party with the snow sports community and bring new elements to life to build on the legacy of the Boston Ski & Snowboard Expo. Since we launched Snowbound Expo in 2022, word has spread about the opportunity for brands and resorts to meet face to face with New England visitors. We’ve seen excitement and enthused exhibitors rebook for November because they want to promote their products, increase brand awareness and grow their position in the snow sports community. There aren’t many opportunities to sell direct to consumers (or through a retailer) at a large consumer event and this Expo offers exactly that, opportunities to grow market share, speak face-to-face and be part of a growing snowsports industry.” 

Earlier than last year and still with seven months until Snowbound Expo returns to New England, the consumer skiing and snowboard Expo has launched 5,000 tickets priced for just $1 each. Families, couples and individuals from all walks of life are encouraged to book their day or weekend pass for the 3-day expo to benefit from the early bird discount. 

The show will offer something for all skiers and riders and includes brands such as IKON Pass, Alterra, Burton, Deuter, Darn Tough, Fischer, Head/Tyrolia, Helly Hansen and Hestra Gloves. More include J Skis, Kulkea, Meier Skis, Nordica, Oosc Clothing, Ortovox, Parlor Skis & Snowboards, Peak Skis, Phunkshun Wear, Renoun Skis, Rollerblade, Salomon, Scarpa, Stockli, Teton Gravity Research, Vertical Brands and many more listed on the website.  

Resorts include Burke Mountain, Jackson Hole, Jay Peak Vermont, Killington, Le Massif de Charlevoix, Loon Mountain Resort, Ragged Mountain Resort, Saddleback Maine, Tenney Mountain, Woodstock Inn & Resort, Wachusett Mountain Ski Area with more being confirmed before June 15th 

The Expo will also host over 20 speakers who will share inspiration, skills, advice and stories. We’re excited to announce alpine ski champion Ted Ligety as our first headliner for the 2023 event, with many more amazing athletes and speakers to follow.
