TREVOSE, PA – May 4, 2018 – The Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI) today announced Marquis Jet co-founder, best-selling author and entrepreneur Jesse Itzler will headline the 2018 ASI Power Summit, October 14-16, in Tucson, AZ.

Registration is open for the 12th annual three-day gathering of top entrepreneurs, multinational CEOs and small-business owners from throughout the $23.6 billion promotional products industry. Itzler (@the100MileMan) will be the Power Summit’s main keynoter, the highlight of a packed agenda that includes soon-to-be-announced speakers and panelists who will energize and empower participants while providing new business contacts and bold business strategies for the future.

“Prepare to be amazed,” said Timothy M. Andrews, president and chief executive officer of ASI. “Jesse Itzler’s keynote is an exclusive opportunity to be informed, inspired and wowed by one of the most successful and unique entrepreneurs on the planet. It’s certain to be a highlight of the Power Summit, which is considered the industry event of the year.”

Itzler sold Marquis Jet, the world’s largest private jet card company, to Berkshire Hathaway/NetJets, and then partnered with Zico coconut water, which he and his partner sold to The Coca-Cola Company. The ultra-marathon runner and former MTV rapper is married to Sara Blakely, the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire and Spanx founder.
