The Fresh Yard crew got a chance to stop by Agenda yesterday in Long Beach to basically walk around and say hi to people we know and planned on seeing at Magic anyways. LOL. Coined by a lot of people we met yesterday as the ‘hang out show’, it was a very relaxing and chill environment as compared to the mega show Magic. Agenda has always been a chill show every since they were in San Diego, of course then it was much smaller and naturally would be nothing like Magic. I am almost comparing apples to oranges here, however Agenda is growing.
And to call it the show where people just hang out, isn’t a bad thing. Trust me, a lot of people hate Magic because it is just too much. Agenda may provide benefits for those seeking brands that don’t booth at Magic, it can provide affordable booths for smaller indie brands that are just starting to have a spot or even just smaller brands to simple booth just starting or not and for buyers wanting a much more relaxed environment to connect with existing accounts or picking up new ones. Nonetheless the show is getting bigger and better and at the least is worth checking out even if you plan on seeing everyone again in two weeks. Here are some pics of yesterday.
