TREVOSE, PA – November 22, 2022

The ASI Show® today announced its 2022 Orlando trade show was recently honored with the Comeback Award for Business Excellence by the Trade Show News Network (TSNN), the world’s leading online resource for the trade show, exhibition and event industry.

The 2022 TSNN Comeback Awards celebrated shows that demonstrated resilience by “coming back” in areas such as attendance, overall business excellence and customer connectivity. ASI Orlando won for demonstrating a positive impact on the Orlando community while delivering a successful show for attendees and exhibitors in a challenging time.

ASI Show is the only trade show organization in the $23.2 billion promotional products industry to win a TSNN award and was among only five Comeback Award winners representing a broad variety of industries.

“TSNN had the honor of awarding ‘stand out’ shows that against all odds dug deep and came back in truly amazing ways,” said TSNN President Rachel Wimberly. “Your team pulled out all the stops to ensure your Orlando show was a resounding success.”

The 12th Annual TSNN Awards and Education Conference was held at the Caesars Forum in Las Vegas. Award winners included trade shows and event organizers from across the U.S., including Consumer Technology Association (CES), the most influential tech event in the world.

“This is an amazing honor and we are thrilled to be recognized by TSNN for such a prestigious award during a time of recovery,” said Stephanie Turner-Scott, executive director of ASI Show operations. “ASI is all about making connections for our members, and our ultimate goal is to create a trade show experience that allows everyone to build long-standing business partnerships that will thrive in the years to come. As we approach 2023, we continue to strive for excellence and explore opportunities to engage, excite and educate our members with new and innovative ways to serve their clients.”

ASI Orlando, the promo industry’s first trade show of 2022, earned overwhelmingly positive feedback and drew over 3,000 supplier and distributor professionals excited to reunite and make valuable in-person connections on a busy show floor jammed with over 500 booths showcasing top, in-stock products.

“We’re very thankful to the thousands of distributors and suppliers who helped make our Orlando show a winner,” said Matt Barnes, ASI senior vice president of supplier sales and marketing. “Our aim was to bring the industry together for three days of important education, networking and sales activities. It’s gratifying to know that we delivered a winning event for the promotional products industry and for the local Orlando community.”
