PROMOTIONS EAST Pre-Show Distributor Registration Numbers Higher Than 2008
PROMOTIONS EAST 2009, taking place June 1 to 3 at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey, announced a strong industry response to its distributor marketing campaign with year-to-date registrations ahead of 2008 levels. PROMOTIONS EAST consistently draws thousands of attendees and remains the industry's premier East Coast event. Organizers are confident that PROMOTIONS EAST will be the year's strongest regional show, exceeding 2008 attendance while other shows have seen significant declines.
"We are very pleased with the attendee response and excitement for PROMOTIONS EAST 2009," said Jonathan Riegel, president of sponsor organization the Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York (SAAGNY). "There was a strategic plan put into place to gain registrations in a tough year and we look forward to delivering a great show for our exhibitors," Riegel added.
PROMOTIONS EAST surveyed 2009 pre-registrants and the results confirm that it is the industry's preferred trade show. Survey results indicate that 93 percent of attendees find PROMOTIONS EAST more convenient than other major industry shows and 78 percent find it to be the most economical show they attend. Results also show that exhibitors will see new attendees that were not at other shows in the region: 78 percent of respondents did not attend the Advertising Specialty Institutes' ASI New York show in New York this March.
"In a year like this, distributors are looking for what's convenient and economical," said Riegel. "These results show that attendees see both of those benefits in PROMOTIONS EAST," he concluded.
