New Contest – Chance for a Free ASI Membership and $250

Filed under: Members, News About ASI

Today we launched a new contest – ‘Why I Love My ASI Membership.’

Twelve current ASI members will be selected at random from qualified entries to receive one free year of ASI basic membership, and a $250 American Express gift card – good as cash.

Winners will also be featured in Counselor magazine and on a special Website, at www.TheNumberThatMatters.com.

The contest came about when ASI members told us in a recent survey that, without a doubt, they love their ASI membership because it helps them do more business. The survey proves that ASI has the number that matters in the advertising specialty industry – your ASI membership number.

Filed under: Members, News About ASI

We just announced that the ASI Show! in Philadelphia is moving to New York City.

I’m excited about this because I worked in New York City on and off for more than 16 years and I know that the energy of New York will provide one of the most dynamic trade shows ever for the industry.

In addition to the show floor, there will be great places to eat, network, socialize, and do business.

Show dates – same as originally scheduled for Philadelphia – and other information is in the following media release from Matthew Cohn, president of ASI Show!. Also visit www.asishow.com>.

Filed under: Education, Media Coverage

I’m sure you’ve seen stories in the popular press about recalls of products made in China, including the recent news in Counselor PromoGram about promotional products distributed by California that were found to contain more lead than permitted under guidelines acceptable in North America.
