ASD Registration Open for March 2013 Show

Join Retail Minded’s Nicole Leinbach Reyhle in Las Vegas at the ASD Show, one of the nation’s largest consumer trade shows for retailers to discover, connect and buy from categories that include beauty, apparel, accessories, gift, novelty, health, value & variety and much more. Taking place March 17-20, 2013 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the ASD Trade Show is essentially like six trade shows in one – offering a vast amount of product for retailers of a variety of categories.

For over fifty years, ASD Trade Show has supported independent retailers with their unique goals of creating dynamic merchandising mixes for their stores. With over 2,800 vendors to choose from, it’s no surprise retailers who attend ASD return again and again.

Longtime attendee Marilyn Peterson is a fan of ASD’s Cash & Carry jewelry section, while California based Rachel Cohen discovered ASD and recently went for the first time in August 2012 – with plans to return in March. Among the many great attributes of ASD is that it caters to so many retailers, offering something for everyone. Plus, their extensive product mix lets you buy what you know you need and discover what you know will sell. Additionally, ASD offers a strong line up of educational seminars, expert speakers and other show perks for attendees of the show.

    I am a Free-Lance Buyer and I’m planning to go to the ASD show in March with a pharmacy owner client. This is our first time in this show. Do you have any suggestions???

      Hi there! Great question! The show is pretty big – which means there are a tremendous amount of vendors to consider for your client. This said, I would develop a strategy based on the show maps provided by ASD. Knowing what sections you plan to “shop” each day will help you narrow it down to target vendors you want to see… plus just finding vendors as you explore each section. Definitely wear comfortable shoes and have a bag big enough for the line sheets, Buyers Packets, etc. that you will pick up. Wishing you a successful show!
