"Attending ASI Show is key to understanding how you can better serve your clients' needs by demonstrating new and exciting products, as well as discovering different alternatives you may have been searching for."
"Being a distributor, I met some terrific people in the industry and formed many professional relationships with suppliers. Meeting vendors face-to-face and seeing the latest items to provide to our customers is not only beneficial, but is key to client retention and providing the best customer service."
"The opportunity to speak directly with suppliers to gain knowledge from their experience is invaluable. Learning supplier processes oftentimes helps me as a distributor manage client expectations from the start."
"It's a different experience being able to touch and feel the quality of products in your hand, rather than just seeing them presented on a screen. You take away a lot more information about a product, its quality and how to use it when you can have all of that demonstrated in person."
“I love everything about this event! I wasn’t going to come because I am so busy and it was a bad time for me. I am so glad I did. I’ve been able to see some of the newest products and gift sets that I have been looking for and wouldn’t have seen. I had some really good meetings and made some great connections. I am so excited now and I look forward to more events like this in the future.“
“This has been great, I am getting a lot of information with each supplier meeting and what I can bring back to my clients. I’ve had good quality meetings and taking a lot of notes. I wish more of my colleagues were here. Good positive vibes and I would 100% participate again.”
"This was my first fASIlitate and I really enjoyed meeting all the suppliers, many were companies I’ve never done business with before and 95% of the ones I met I will do business with going forward. We had good quality meetings and it was an extremely good use of my time.”
“I was a little nervous being out of the office for a few days but this was time well spent. The event was educational, informative and highly entertaining. The meetings were engaging and I will be doing business with at least 80-85% of the suppliers I connected with at this event. This was an incredible opportunity and I am glad I came.”
