ASD Market Week Introduces New Show Branding and Perks
Want to make the most of your time and your money? ASD Market Week – your Affordable Shopping Destination – allows you to do just that.
Held in Las Vegas twice a year, ASD Market Week – previously known as ASD Las Vegas – delivers nine shows in one location. With the widest variety of goods anywhere, retailers can buy for their stores at the most affordable marketplace for vendors and retailers to connect. A long time, leading trade show for merchants in categories that include fashion, home, c-stores, general goods, beauty and more, ASD Market Week offers buyers over 2,600 vendors to source from during each of their bi-annual, 4 day market weeks.
ASD has evolved over many, many years and for a longtime, ASD has simply been ASD. However, as each year has passed, ASD has morphed into way more than it originally ever set out to be. Overtime, this evolution has built a market experience unlike any other for retailers, offering nine shows in one space for merchants of different market categories to source from,” explains Camille Candella, Vice President of Marketing for ASD Market Week.
Among the many market segments supported by ASD Market Week include nine distinct categories that include fashion and accessories, beauty and fragrance, gift and home, toys and novelties, cash and carry, general store, c-store and smoke. As Candella further explains, the value of ASD Market Week is the fact that “so much more than a niche market” is offered to buyers, allowing retailers to really maximize their trade show experience.
In theory, each of our nine categories could stand on their own,” Candella explains. “However, the value of ASD Market Week is that buyers can explore other categories beyond their niche market, as well as gain a tremendous assortment for their main retail category.”
With the largest, affordable full scale merchandise assortment in the country, ASD Market Week continues to top lists of must attend retail events. In September 2014, Vend POS company released a report of must attend retail events, with ASD Market Week included on this highly respected list. Additionally, Trade Show News Network – a leading destination for trade show data and more – has repeatedly identified ASD Market Week as a top 20 show among their 250 trade show list.
One of the main reasons ASD has been successful over the years is because we have a long list of returning retailers,” Candella states. “This is because retailers have tremendous success buying at ASD, and we’re constantly aiming to improve the retailer experience while at ASD Market Week.”
In addition to delivering nine shows in one convenient spot, ASD Market Week also provides stand-out education that is free to all attendees of ASD Market Week.
In 2015, we will once again welcome the Independent Retailer Conference to the show floors of ASD Market Week. This has been a great addition for our retailers, allowing them to connect with some of the industry’s leading retail thought-leaders, service providers and business experts. This has included experts from Yelp, Twitter, Constant Contact, SnapRetail, Soldsie and more. Free for all attendees to experience, we are excited to continue providing trusted education for our retailers to gain from,” shares Candella.
With nine shows in one and a show committed to improving retailers unique, individual success, ASD Market Week is no doubt a must attend trade show. Held March 1-4, 2015 and August 2-5, 2015, be sure to plan your next trade show experience at ASD Market Week. Learn more by visiting ASDMarketWeek.com.
