ASC Action Sports + Culture Conference, powered by Group Y
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.

When Agenda Tradeshow launched in 2003, they redefined the ways in which brands and entrepreneurs interact. We set forth to introduce a forum for creativity, inspiration and commerce. In 2013, we segued this forum into the Agenda Emerge conference, which established a new source of inspiration. Along the way, we have been fortunate enough to engage with and learn from some of the most accomplished mavericks of fashion, design, action sports, art, and music.
Agenda Emerge now exists as a public portal into the creative process. We have created Emerge to inspire the next generation of innovators and to reignite the passion of the veterans. We believe that brands, artists and designers are storytellers and we are captivated by their stories. Emerge is our way of telling these storyteller’s stories. Through unprecedented access and insightful narratives, we will explore how these mavericks of industry have adapted to, overcome, conquered, disrupted and influenced their fields of work.
Agenda Emerge is an exploration of passion and the people that have found success in it’s pursuit. For years we have been inspired by our friends, colleagues and idols and this is our opportunity to learn what makes them tick. More So… it’s an opportunity for us to share it with you.
