Last month I had the opportunity to attend ASD Market Week here in Las Vegas. It is the most comprehensive B2B trade show in the world. It brings the world’s largest variety of retail merchandise together in one location for buyers of all kinds to experience. The show floor is filled with every kind of product choices at every wholesale price point. It is hard to imagine a product that wasn’t represented here. ASD Market Week is held twice per year in Las Vegas and will be back again in August. This event is truly the wholesale buying event for any small to large sized retail, distribution, or importing business. Whether you have a business already or wish to start one, this is a good start.
The show is over a 4 day period and in addition to the seemingly miles and miles of products being sold. Honestly, I was unable to finish exploring the entire Las Vegas Convention Center for this event in one day. There are also locations for presentations and seminars to learn how to be a better retailer, expand your business or just be a better sales professional. There are so many things to do here that if you plan of getting the full effect, I would strongly recommend that you pace yourself over 3-4 days or at least focus on key products, because it simply is not possible to see everything in one day.
This kind of event is great to get more ideas of what business you want to have. They have all kinds of items to sell and services to provide. I was not planning anything but to cover the event and blog about it but as I got out of the convention center, I just had information overload and thinking of having a business. However, it’s not yet my priority as of the moment but I will definitely contact at least one of the suppliers I have met once I am ready to take this path.
It was a great experience and I am looking forward to do this again. If anyone has any questions about my persona experiences or opinions about ASD Market Week, , as always, I am happy to answer. Thanks for reading and have a happy and productive.
