ASI Presents Second Virtual Trade Show

Monday August 17, 2009 | Filed under: ASI Shows, Industry Initiatives, News About ASI

Back by popular demand - the ASI Virtual Trade Show.  

We heard your feedback following our inaugural show in May - which many attendees thought was very productive, educational and beneficial - and we're hosting our second free online virtual trade show this Wednesday, August 19.

The all-day event will feature more than 20 top suppliers, including Fields Manufacturing Inc. (asi/54100), Tri-Mountain Inc. (asi/92125) and Maple Ridge Farms Inc. (asi/68680).  Distributors can participate in ASI Education sessions online, and distributors, suppliers and decorators can network and sell in real-time through interactive multimedia booths.

Our first show in May attracted over 2,000 participants and averaged 1,300 visitors per booth.  Attendees told us that the virtual experience was "awesome," "easy to navigate" and "outstanding and innovative." 

Margit Fawbush, marketing manager for Norwood Promotional Products, Inc. (asi/63110), said Norwood saw a big bump in web traffic as a result of the links from their booth and described the show as "an excellent experience."

So we hustled to provide another smart opportunity for distributors, suppliers and decorators to connect, sell and build market share.  This week's show will have 11 new suppliers that weren't at the first one.   

More information about the areas of the show are in the press release:  click here.

Registration for distributors for free.  And when distributors register, they receive a free download of ASI's new Distributor Success System - worth $299 - with tips and proven strategies to spur business.  Attendees also have a chance to win over $17,000 in cash and prizes, just by visiting and interacting with suppliers in the Exhibit Hall.
