ASIS 2017 Stronger, Says Manufacturers

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 29, 2017

ASIS has reversed a trend of declining satisfaction from manufacturers, based on results of our survey of 80 manufacturers.

However, exhibitors faced some significant problems with the show, and while opinions are up, ASIS is still not seen as a "must do" show.

We have detailed feedback on what manufacturers said they liked, and disliked, about the 2017 show in this report.
