ASD Market Week Kicks Off Day 1 With Excitement, New Vendors & Thousands of Retailers
Day one of ASD Market Week is underway, and joining ASD Market Week for the first time ever are the recently launched Trump Bobbleheads (Booth SL1351) from Plan P2 Promotions. Instead of aiming to “Make America Great Again”, ASD wants to make retail great again… and their Spring 2016 market week is helping them do just that. Nearly 100 new vendors have joined the gift, toy and home categories alone – plus an electronic section has debuted for the first time at ASD Market Week – truly making ASD a one stop destination for retailers to discover products for their stores.
Among the new vendors at ASD Market Week are Geek My Tree of Shark Tank fame, a animated holiday lighting experience unlike any decorations you’ve ever seen on holiday trees in the past. Founder Brad Boynk created Geek My Tree after previously decking out homes in holiday lights and music. But what happens when you want to bring that same spirit inside your house? Boynk – along with his business partner Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank – are changing the indoor holiday lighting experience, and at ASD Market Week you can discover them at booth SL2432.
Re-purposed products are all the rage in retail right now – as is the nonstop discussions of guns that take place in the media. Why not bring the value of hot sellers and hot topics to your store? Another new vendor at ASD Market Week is The Bullet Studio, a Vegas based company that is known for their controversial yet stylish jewelry designs made from re-purposed bullets. Create conversations and sales in your store with The Studio Bullet, plus discover their handmade jewelry trees made from recycled lamps.
Other stand-out vendors included Deep South Barrels , iSantaCam and GetRoxo.com, a price point favorable distributor of licensed children’s charm bracelets, nightlights and more. Discover them all only at ASD Market Week.
Finally, what would a trade show be without the experiences of the trade show itself? ASD Market Week never fails when it comes to offering their attendees an abundance of excitement in the midst of thousands of vendors. Today’s opening day was no exception – and the day kicked off with educational sessions, opening ceremonies and more. Additionally, attendees were able to experience the reconfigured Fashion Accessories Area for the first time, making it truly the largest accessories show in the United States. From fashion accessories to apparel to footwear and beauty, attendees can easily and enjoyably navigate the Fashion Accessories Area to discover the right finds for their unique store. The only challenge? Deciding what vendors and products to narrow down to in order to stay within your store budget. And just when attendees thought they saw it all, live music entertained attendees, as well, in the Shoe Parlor at ASD Market Week, featuring Lauren Black near booth #C3725.
From bobbleheads to animated holiday lights to bullet inspired jewelry, there’s truly a wealth of products to discover at ASD Market Week. With three more days ahead of us, be sure to put on your walking shoes as you discover all that ASD has to offer. And if you’re not here in person to experience ASD, follow along with hashtag #ASDShow to ensure you don’t miss out on the Affordable Shopping Destination (ASD) that retailers return to again and again to help bring great products with strong margins to their stores!
