Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 20, 2006
Promopeddler.com received a 2006 ASI Spirit Award from the Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI) for placing fourth as a Top Ten Fastest-Growing Distributor Firm. The honor recognizes ASI member firms that perform above and beyond expectations in the promotional products industry and are selected based upon sales volume increases. Promopeddler.com came in fourth with a 278% growth in promotional product sales since 2003.
Timothy M. Andrews, president of ASI, said “The ASI Spirit Awards give distributor and supplier companies a chance to honor their colleagues for a number of achievements. In this case, these companies are being recognized for their outstanding growth achievements. It’s a very exciting and energy-filled night, which has become a highly-anticipated event and grown dramatically in the twelve years we’ve been doing it.” The awards were handed out in Las Vegas at the Venetian Resort Hotel.
ASI released results of its annual promotional products industry sales analysis, indicating revenues jumped 5.1 percent from 2004 to $17.8 billion in 2005 - the third year of continuous increases and a new record. Spending on promotional products was twice as large as Internet display advertising, five times greater than outdoor advertising and more than cable TV advertising. The exclusive analysis shows that growth in 2005 was driven by increased recognition that promotional products should be included in marketing campaigns and by the overall strength of the U.S. economy.
