ASC Action Sports + Culture Conference 2013
Presented by Group Y
July 24, 2013 at Agenda Show, Center Theater at Long Beach, CA
"AUTHENTICITY IS EVERYTHING"
The event theme is Authenticity. More than just a buzzword, Authenticity is the North Star in a landscape driven by commitment, progression and constant reinvention. From the clothes on our backs, to the content on our screens, to the terrain we ride and the heroes we embrace…originality and true passion transcends it all.
To guide us in exploring this theme, we have an outstanding roster of heavy hitters whose work has impacted youth culture and action sports. Each presenter will draw on their experience and bring their insights and perspective on what authenticity means: How to respect the traditions of the past, and break the rules of tomorrow. How to recognize and embrace visionary ideas, and what it takes to sustain a trajectory that is true.
