Our annual tradeshow is coming up on October 6 and 7, 2014 (Mon and Tues). You’ll see many of the leading skate vendors here showing off their new products. You’ll be the first to see some great closeout opportunities. The local RSA Chapter will be hosting meetings at the hotel, they’ll be electing new officers, and Steve Earley from Sure-Grip will be doing a presentation on what he’s seen travelling the country visiting skating rinks. Plus this is a great opportunity to meet with other rink operators in person and learn from your peers. For more info, or to fill out a registration form, please visit www.seskate.com/tradeshow or call us with any questions you might have.
Vanilla will have several new items coming out this fall. None of these are in stock now, but we’re hoping they’ll start arriving soon. Among the new items:
Junior Package – Two new colors, Denim (blue) and Altitude (black and grey with green highlights, shown below)
X1 – Entry level inline race skate
Carbon – Inline race skate, now also in green
360 Boots – Black with red, slightly lower priced than the Freestyle
Backspin Wheels – Many new color and hardness combos coming
Roll-On has a new line of floor coating products available called Traction Coating. We mentioned these in last month’s Skate Update. The new system goes down quicker, with less fumes and odor, and is perfectly clear. They’re legal in all 50 states and they’re available now. Please visit http://seskate.com/technical/RollOn.html for a complete set of instruction sheets.
