On the weekend of September 21 and 22, Hypexchange was blessed with the opportunity to be vendors at the annual Sneakercon event at the Enercare Centre in downtown Toronto. The event was filled with steals, deals and was overall an amazing experience. Sneakerheads from all walks of life were roaming about enjoying the incredible selection of sneakers that all the vendors had to offer.

The day started bright and early for our team on the first day of the event. We rushed down to the Enercare centre to get an optimal spot to put our table. Most of the morning was spent merchandising and tagging the products. When the gates to the event were finally open, the craziness of the day began. We were constantly on our feet negotiating with people buying, selling and trading shoes. The turnout was a lot bigger than we expected. It was a surreal experience to be a part of. 

Sneakercon allowed us to really network and put our name out in the sneakerhead community. We met a ton of new businesses, entrepreneurs and potential clients. Huge shout out to everyone who made the event run as smoothly as possible. Whether it was the consigners that let us present their products to the volunteers that came out to help serve at the table, none of what was accomplished would have been possible without them.

Hypexchange looks forward to being a part of upcoming sneaker events throughout the year. This is just the beginning of something special.
