Our Business Affiliations
Advertising Specialty Institute®
ASI is a large media and marketing organization serving the advertising specialty industry. The two major players in the advertising specialty industry are suppliers (importers, manufacturers) and distributors (Simply Promotions). Supplier firms use ASI print and electronic resources to market products to distributor salespeople, while distributor firms use ASI print and electronic resources to locate supplier firms and to market services to end-buyers (promotions and advertising buyers). ASI's mission, then, is to bring together these participants by providing catalogs, information directories, newsletters, magazines, Web sites and databases, and offering interactive e-commerce, marketing and selling tools.
As a member of ASI®, SIMPLY PROMOTIONS has access to products from more than 20,000 suppliers (manufacturers) throughout the U.S. and abroad.
