Jan. 4 – 5 – ASI Show (5,608 attendees)
At The ASI Show, our business is helping your business grow by bringing together suppliers, decorators and distributors within the advertising specialty industry. Attracting 20,000 attendees each year, The ASI Show takes place in five popular destinations at strategic times of the year. The action-packed schedule features exhibits promoting the newest and most unique items, the industry’s largest education conference and non-stop networking opportunities.
The format of The ASI Show allows for meaningful conversations. Much more than a “scan-and-go” show, you’ll have the opportunity to expand your industry relationships, learn the latest trends and discuss your sales goals and clients’ needs face to face with leading suppliers.
Showcasing a wide range of products and services, 81% of ASI Show attendees find new items they were not aware of prior to attending and 87% say they are more likely to show their clients products they find at an ASI Show.
