“The Advantages Roadshow targets 130,000 industry distributor salespeople from more than 22,000 ASI distributor companies,” said Timothy M. Andrews, president of The ASI Show.  “Suppliers can easily meet hundreds of distributors each week, and that’s more than they could meet through personal phone calls in the same amount of time.”  

Reactions from attendees were positive.

“The Advantages Roadshow is a great way to meet locals I don’t see at other shows,” said supplier Eric Quinn of Hirsch, who attended the Stitches show.  “Roadshows really allow us to spend one-on-one time with a large number clients and prospects – many more than we could see making traditional sales calls.”

“I really enjoyed the show because I met with so many leading suppliers, I almost lost count,” said first-time attendee Niki Hunsaker of distributor Biz Wear in Salt Lake City.  “It’s a great way to do business efficiently, without having to travel too far or spend a lot of money.”
