PIA Symposium – Vendor list for 2013

Preparations for the 2013 PIA Symposium (held right down the road from us in Daytona Beach, FL) are coming along nicely.  Manufacturers near and far are half in hysterics preparing their booths & swag, speakers are fine tuning their seminars and the PIA committee working hard behind the scenes to make sure everything comes off without a hitch.

The PIA Symposium is a funny animal that has evolved quite a bit through recent years. It definitely goes to show us that the industry has matured and evolved out of tiny shops and garages and into fully fledged manufacturing industry, complete with ISO compliance and all kinds of fanciness. We’ve also seen the PIA booth dress code go from tie-dyed hippie t-shirts, to snazzy polos, to full on button up shirts and ties.
Not everyone mind you, but if you go visit you’ll be amazed at how well skydivers clean up once you get them out of the jumpsuit.

There has always been a pretty strong link between sport and military skydiving and that is true still today. you can notice a fairly good size military presence at the symposium, both as vendors and in attendance. Good or bad – we’ll leave that discussion for another time.

And don’t forget that if you only want to visit the vendor exhibit, the cost to get in is only $7.00 per day. No advance registration necessary – quick and easy process by the door.

Without further ado we present the list of registered vendors as posted on the PIA Facebook page and on the PIA website (visit either one for updates):
