Benefits of ASI Virtual Trade Show

Friday June 5, 2009 | Filed under: ASI Shows, Industry Initiatives, News About ASI

The recent success of ASI's first virtual trade show is being showcased in Tradeshow Week, and the editor asked me to provide some information about the benefits of our inaugural show for distributors, suppliers and decorators.  The publication is the leading voice of the exhibition industry.

As I told the magazine, virtual trade shows are an ideal way for advertising specialty industry distributors and suppliers to connect, learn and sell in an efficient way and at a time when we all could use innovative methods to become more educated, reach prospects and grab market share.

In addition to the virtual show, ASI's in-person shows provide opportunities to meet clients and prospects face-to-face.  The next one is around the corner in July in Chicago.  Click here for the full schedule.

Our first virtual show in May was so well received - with over 2,000 attendees - we've already scheduled another one for Wednesday, August 19.  If you missed the first one, it's archived and available anytime at
