Aaron Levant, age 30, was a high school dropout when he started AGENDA at the age of 19. Over the last 10 years, Aaron has grown the trade show into one of the biggest and most influential action sports and streetwear trade shows in the nation—and is credited with putting competitors, like Action Sports Retailer (ASR), out of business.
At 19 years old, while trying to get his independent fashion brand recognized in the market, Levant saw an opportunity: to help emerging brands succeed at trade shows. Agenda was first launched in 2003 in LA with 33 brands represented—today each show is supported by over 550 brands per event and has expanded from Long Beach to NY and Las Vegas. Agenda has also teamed up with Reed Exhibitions, the world’s leading event organizer.
Upcoming Agenda shows include; Long Beach, CA, January 7 & 8; New York, January 22 & 23; Las Vegas, February 17 – 19.
