AUGUST 2015 POST SHOW REPORT
Dear Valued Customer,
As 2015 comes to a close, I wanted to take the time to reach out to you and share some truly spectacular highlights
from our recent August event in Las Vegas.
VIP BUYER ATTENDANCE GROWS BY 24%
Our Buyer Development team members were busy this spring and summer discovering new domestic and
international buyers. Their efforts helped elevate our VIP retail buyer attendance by 24% and overall retail buyer/
importer and distributors by 14%! 28% of our attendees were NEW to ASD, which meant new opportunities
for exhibitors. The team also worked with Exhibitors on an exclusive hosted buyer program for qualified prospective
buyers. In addition to hosting this elite group at the SLS Hotel, we provided black car service to and from the show,
breakfast and cocktail hours and exclusive VIP Buyer lounges throughout the show floor to help this special group
stay refreshed in between all their order-writing.
NEW NAME. NEW LOOK.
To reflect the energy and vibrancy of ASD, we rebranded the show as ASD Market Week – The Affordable Shopping
Destination and rolled out new creative to illustrate the concept of 9 shows under one roof. By focusing on our core
markets – fashion + accessories, gift + home, beauty + fragrance, toys + novelties, cash + carry (jewelry & gifts to
go), general store, smoke + vape, c-store and SourceDirect, we were able to communicate the message of all that
ASD has to offer and attract buyers like never before.
MILLION DOLLAR MARKETING
In 2015, we increased our buyer marketing investment by over one million dollars in an effort to improve both quality
and quantity of buyers for you to connect with. We committed to seeking out the best and most qualified buyers to
attend ASD Market Week. Our investment included increased meetings with buyers by our buyer development team,
direct mail, telephone, e-mail campaigns as well as trade advertising and maximizing our PR efforts with media
partners and industry associations.
MAKING STRIDES WITH MATCHING BUYERS & VENDORS
Onsite, we had kiosks staffed with our experts to help Buyers find new categories and new vendors to explore. The
launch of our Mobile App also assisted Buyers in making ASD Market Week the most efficient and effective to date.
Exhibitors took notice of our efforts and an overwhelming number have reported record sales at the August show!
We are so excited to continue our efforts for 2016 and beyond as we strive to be the #1 resource for both retail
buyers and exhibitors. If you have any feedback you would like to share with us, please do not hesitate to reach out.
We look forward to serving you this coming year!
Sincerely,
Karalynn Sprouse
