Power On To Fall

Friday August 20, 2010 | Filed under: News About ASI, Research

With the dog days waning, it’s hard to think of anything besides a last-gasp vacation and Labor Day barbeque. But I’ve got the perfect way to help you plan strategically for 2011 and beyond, and make those vital people connections: ASI’s 2010 Power Summit.

Registration is open for ASI’s annual gathering of the best minds in the business. This year, we’re meeting November 7-9 at the Turnberry Isle Resort & Club in Aventura, Florida. If you’ve already registered but haven’t yet reserved a room, please do so by Tuesday, August 31, since rooms are going fast. Click here for reservations.

 In addition to a slate of activities and the popular speed-networking event, Power Summit 2010 features 20 of the savviest business leaders in the industry. Summit vets will join first-time panelists like Bobby Lehew, Rich Witaszak, Gentry Harrington, William D. Smith Jr., Sandy Gonzalez, Jeff Anderton, Kevin Kearns, Kim Newell, Matt Malone, Larry Zavadil, Chris Blakeslee and Bill Korowitz to share strategies, tips and trends.

 We’re kicking things off with an opening session on the state of the economy – and what businesses can expect heading into 2011. And while nearly everyone experienced a tough time over the last couple of years, some companies completely turned their operations around. Find out how in our “From Bear to Bull” session.

At the end of every summit we ask participants to rate their favorites (and offer valuable feedback), and each year Matthew Cohn’s session with the latest Counselor Power 50 leaders earns top marks. Don’t miss it this year.

We’ll also unveil an update to ASI’s Ad Impressions Study, which continues to be consistently cited on blogs and in trade stories. In a sneak-peek session led by Counselor Senior Writer Dave Vagnoni, you’ll be the first to learn how domestic and international consumers rate the effectiveness of promo products compared to other advertising media like TV, radio and print. It’s great info to have on hand when courting new clients.

So before you head off to the beach one last time, check out the website and cruise through all the Power Summit has to offer. Come November, you’ll be happy you signed on for three days of sun, golf and insight.
