MOST DIVERSE BUYER REACH
“I absolutely recommend exhibiting at ASD. It’s nice for buyers to actually be able to touch the product and see the quality while talking face to face and building that relationship. There’s nothing like selling in person. It’s the start of day 3 and we’ve done around $600,000 in sales so far. It’s been great.”
– Chandler Post, KMS, Inc., Wichita, KS | 2022 Exhibitor
“Yesterday we had a million dollar order for the first time in my life. Right after that we got a $460,000 order. This is the best show we’ve ever had in 33 years! ASD is unique because the buyers here are writing orders, they pay for their orders, there’s no chargebacks… it’s a better quality customer at ASD. It’s a great show.”
– David Zeuner, Miracle Nutritional Products, Weeki Wachee, FL | 2022 Exhibitor
“This year’s ASD has probably been our best show in the last 10 years in terms of order writing. Everyone who’s come into our booth is ready to buy. We aren’t traditionally a Convenience Store brand, so we get to see a lot more Convenience Stores, Travel Marts, Gas Stations, etc at ASD than we do at other shows. It’s a pretty eclectic mix of buyers.”
– Chris Gomez & David Snyder, Jelly Belly Candy Company, Fairfield, CA | 2022 Exhibitor
“ASD is such a diverse group of exhibitors. We get a lot of new customers that may be here for purchasing lamps or blankets, and they’ve never seen us before or thought of purchasing name drop items like sweatshirts and t-shirts. We get a lot of exposure to a different type of clientele, which is why we love coming to ASD!”
– Anya Benton, Exist, Inc., Fort Lauderdale, FL | 2022 Exhibitor
