Hotel Information

Generally, our hotel rates are very reasonable and we do hold a room block prior to the event to guarantee you a great rate (though don’t wait to book your room as they almost always sell out). We also don’t require a retailer registration process so we keep it extremely laid back and hassle-free.

Reserve Your Space

Our booth space is extremely limited and works on a first-come, first-serve basis so please don’t delay in getting the contract below filled out and faxed back. Enclosed is the current contract for our trade shows. This must be filled out and sent back in order to process your payment and reserve your space.

What People Have To Say

“I can’t say enough about how much we appreciate the Action Expo running. The location and accomodations are perfect for our shop needs. It is so much more efficient, especially when it comes to time and money, than the huge shows that require much larger travel costs.”

– Grant Willis Sierra Moon, Rehoboth Beach DE –


What People Have To Say

“The Action Expo provides our region the perfect venue to connect core retailers with action sport vendors in a totally relaxing atmosphere. It is a pleasure to be able to get most of my work done in one spot over a couple days”.

– Kevin Morris-Mens Buyer,, Heritage Surf & Sport


What People Have To Say

“The Action Expo is the right show in the right place at the right time. I’ve been unhappy taking critical days out of the store and the expenses involved with other surf and lifestyle shows for many years.”
