The organizers of Glissexpo, the action and board sports fair on the French Basque Coast, have decided to cancel the trade show. Alain Sevellec and Rémi Bertoche had tried to revive the event, which was then called Salon des Glisseurs, two years ago. Renamed Glissexpo for its second edition, in September 2012, it had attracted some 300 brands. The management of the administrative and commercial aspects of the event, however, have since grown increasingly complicated, with ongoing problems for organizers in getting both confirmations and payments from their clients, due to the challenging situation in the action and board sports market. This year, Sevellec sent a letter informing clients that if the event did not reach 60 percent of confirmations by the end of April, it would be cancelled. The required number of confirmations did not arrive. Organizers said they will decide whether or not to continue the event in the future depending on developments in the sector.
