FAQs

Participants must be ASI members in good standing, well established and have a 4- or 5-star rating.

First right of refusal will be offered to suppliers who can renew their participation from the current year to the next year. (For example, a supplier who participated in two events in 2020 will be able to renew participation for two 2021 events). Suppliers will have two weeks to exercise their first right of refusal. Suppliers must secure their participation with a signed contract and deposit.

Suppliers who fail to secure their participation by the first-right-of-refusal deadline will have their spot(s) open up to those suppliers currently on the waitlist. Waitlist period will last for two weeks. Waitlist clients are defined as those clients who have a category-exclusive product that was filled in 2019, which has since become available in 2020. Suppliers can secure their participation in 2021 with a signed contract and deposit.

Early-bird-rate period will be available to all qualified suppliers after first-right-of-refusal and waitlist period have been completed. Also during the early-bird-rate period, clients who secured their participation in the first-right-of-refusal period can add on fASIlitate locations should they be available. A new SRA will need to be completed to include the new locations. Suppliers will secure their participation with a signed contract and deposit. The early-bird-rate period will last for two weeks.

At the conclusion of the early-bird-rate period, any supplier’s participation in the next year's fASIlitate will be at the full rate. Supplier’s participation will be secured with a signed contract and deposit.

The participation of suppliers and their product line(s) is up to management approval. Show management does not promise exclusivity nor exclusion of companies viewed as competitors by other companies.

Multi-line product suppliers who include the same product as another supplier will be reviewed by show management for approval. We accept that with multi-product suppliers in the industry, there will be product overlap. We will use ESP® categories and ASI Show Event Priority Points as a guide for determining competitive overlap and participation decision making. The ultimate goal is for each event to include a maximum variety of suppliers and products for the participating distributors.

A waitlist is maintained for suppliers with an exclusive product should the first-right supplier opt out of an event.

For the benefit of participating distributors, ASI Show works to present a variety of companies and products, and we seek to have as little overlap as reasonably possible. The decision of who participates is 100% at the discretion of show management and there are no promises to any supplier about not allowing competitors to participate at fASIlitate. When considering participation, show management will consider suppliers' product categories, dates applications are received and ASI Show Priority Points – accumulated based on spending across the entire ASI Show portfolio.
