Margin has historically meant “keystone” or 50% of selling price. At ASD you can put keystone in the rear view mirror as margins can greatly exceed the 50% level. Watch the video where one retailer explains how they buy necklaces at $2-3 and sell for $49. This represents the high value found at ASD. Not only do these margins insure high profit, but also protect margins upon markdowns.
Buyers consistently find on-trend new products, like the buyer who found styles she just saw in In Style Magazine. Here you will find new and interesting products that no one else has. Combine on-trend and new products with the highest margins and you can’t beat the reason to attend ASD.
With 9 shows, 19 categories and 2700 vendors, ASD has the widest selection of merchandise in one place at one time. Save time and money by attending ASD, as the need for going to other shows is reduced (or eliminated).
Time is money so why go to other shows (or so many) when ASD is the one place you can find everything you want and need to buy. No need to spend money on travel to see the same merchandise. Manage your time and money the Smart ASD Way. One Stop in One Week.
