Imaging Network Forms Exclusive Partnership with ASI®
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – February 19, 2010 – Imaging Network (a Questex Media, LLC Company), a leading business-to-business multimedia marketing company serving the office products industry, today announced an agreement with the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) to provide product research and marketing tools to help Imaging Network’s subscribers add or increase their office products related promotional / logo placement product sales.
ASI’s reputation and proven experience, along with best-in-class resources like ESP Online, LogoMall, marketing catalogs and educational offerings, convinced Imaging Network to form a strategic partnership that serves as the cornerstone of a successful transition into the promotional products industry.
“Our new partnership with ASI is a perfect fit,” said Cedric Guillory, Imaging Network’s Director of Marketing. “We are always on the lookout for innovative ways to help our Dealer / Resellers boost their bottom line and ASI’s products and services will greatly enhance our ability to meet the needs of our readers. Combine their expertise in this specialized market with the custom solutions and exceptional service our customers have come to expect.
He also states: “The Independent Dealers that read our magazines already sell office products, by adding their clients’ logos and messages to these items adds more value. Now the office products they sell become a marketing tool for their customers, which adds value and helps build relationships.”

Buyers are certain to be happy with the extra attention and additional services Imaging Network can now provide.”
