Weak ASIS 2015 Show Upsets Manufacturers

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 02, 2015

Though ASIS is supposed to be dedicated to security professionals, their main customer base and revenue source ($10+ million) is manufacturers.

Manufacturers each pay tens to hundreds of thousands for booths plus around a million to sponsor various aspects of the show, e.g., $50,000 for their signs in the aisle, $3,500 to put their logo on a golf ball, $6,000 to sponsor notepads (pens not included), etc.

However, manufacturers overall feel strongly that they are not getting their money's worth.

In this note, we share survey results from 50+ manufacturers, detailed commentary on the problem and our analysis on what this means for the future of ASIS.
