Press release from: National Gift Card

May 2, 2011 – CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. –National Gift Card Corp. (NGC) announced today it has reached an agreement with The Advertising Specialty Institute® to become a supplier sponsor for The ASI Show, the largest series of events in the industry for advertising, promotional, and motivational product manufacturers and distributors. The ASI Show hosts five super-regional trade shows annually in Orlando, Dallas, New York, San Diego and Chicago.

Under the sponsorship agreement, National Gift Card will supply and fulfill Visa® Prepaid Cards as a sponsor of The ASI Show’s hotel room and travel reimbursement programs and Passport to Winnings program for each show. The cards are issued by MetaBank™ pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc.

“We are pleased to partner with ASI by becoming a sponsor of The ASI Show, which brings together thousands of advertising specialty professionals from around the country to see and learn about the latest products and trends shaping the industry,” said NGC President Adam Van Witzenburg. “We look forward to another year of exciting and successful ASI show events.”

Van Witzenburg noted that NGC and ASI recently completed their latest collaborative survey among nearly 200 advertising specialty professionals, taken at the The ASI Show Orlando, Fla., in January, and a recent ASI Virtual Trade Show in March. One surprising finding, he said, was that 89 percent of respondents purchase gift cards directly through merchants and second-party sources, and fail to take advantage of volume discounts and time-saving purchase, fulfillment, and delivery solutions offered by the industry’s gift card suppliers such as NGC.

He added, “Many purchasers are missing out on opportunities, and possibly spending more time and money than they have to if gift cards are – as the survey confirms – indeed an important part of their customer’s incentive and loyalty programs, and a huge part of their customers’ overall budgets.”
