Next Up was invited to speak at the 7th Annual International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC) Skate Summit. We had the chance to share our challenges, accomplishments and goals to the entire skate industry. This year Next Up founder Vina invited Devin McGlinn to share his journey about his recent move from Chicago, IL to join the Next Up family. This year IASC brought together industry leaders for its educational and networking event in skateboarding. Experts from the industry gathered for two days in May to give business leaders new perspective, insight and knowledge needed to help companies succeed in today’s ever-changing environment. This year’s keynote speaker was Gary Vaynerchuk. Already considered a quintessential maven of modern-day marketing, Gary is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author, as well as an entrepreneurial, social media expert.
