About us

We are big enough to handle any size project, but small enough to care about it.

Founded in 1985, ASAP Event Advertising has grown to become America’s foremost event advertising expert. We create excitement, drive store traffic, and increase sales. Partnering with major national and super regional chains in all categories, we design and install high-impact, attention-getting decorations including feather flags, pennant flags, grand opening, tube dancer and others. These grab the consumer at their most important decision points – outside your store and inside while shopping – to increase store traffic.

In addition, big brand companies look to ASAP Event Advertising for expertise in special event and retail promotions at a variety of venues including major sporting events, trade shows, special events and in partnership with major retailers. We create, manage and service larger-than-life, brand-building props, inflatable advertising and attention getters.

ASAP has executed over 100,000 grand opening, combat situations, remodels, promotional and special events – on time and on budget!

Being aware of our footprint as a business is very important to our team. So you can imagine our excitement when we were chosen to be 513 Green Workplace Certified! This is a culmination of years of work. ASAP is now able to recycle vinyl, polyester and metal, so less is going into our dumpster and ultimately, the landfill. Our efforts go beyond just recycling – what originally started as a warehouse reduction effort has spread to everything from office supplies and electronics. We also work with two great organizations; Queen City Commons, who turns organic waste (from our office and our homes) into compost for local farms and Terracyle, who allows us to recycle items that aren’t accepted by our local recycling facility. It’s a work in progress!

Walks & anything outside, observant, eating my stuffed animal toys, goofy, full of energy, carrots, soccer, cuddling, slides & playgrounds.

Fun Fact

I love to eat socks & have been told that I look like a mop, bear, lion & even once, a guinea pig (personally I don’t see the resemblance).

Newton

What Makes Me, Me

SO MUCH ENERGY, Lover of kiddos everywhere, playful & constant annoyance to my big sister, Darwin

Fun Fact

I am in the office almost everyday - but it’s not because I’m the most well behaved - it’s because my humans don’t trust me to be by myself ;)

Company History & Timeline

1985

Founded in 1985 as an aerial advertising company by Mark Phillips. Within the first 5 years, ASAP’s growth saw two office moves as well as a shift in focus from aerial advertising to giant inflatable advertising, vinyl banners and other attention getters.

1991

ASAP founded the Inflatable Advertising Dealers Association (IADA) in 1991 in an effort to develop best practices and grow a knowledgeable installer network nationwide. ASAP’s growth along with the industry saw 2 more office moves, ending in a 17,000 sqft office warehouse in 1998.

2002

ASAP’s focus toward national retail chain stores led to the shift from ASAP Promotions to ASAP Event Advertising in 2002. ASAP developed our own proprietary in-house Project Management software for organizing and executing client events on time and on budget.

2006

Seeing the industry shift away from giant inflatable advertising, ASAP introduced our own flag line, Adverflag™ in 2006. We also introduced our online store which gave clients the ability to buy our stock products online.

2013

ASAP continues to grow with a 3rd generation of our proprietary project management software which includes a web portal for existing clients to access their events 24/7 - launched in 2013. Our online store now allows clients to design their own decorations in real time online. In 2015, ASAP became a distributer for an interior signage hanging system called Clik-Clik™ and added interior signage installs to our list of services. ASAP has executed over 100,000 events since 1985 and continue to add to that number everyday.

2020

ASAP continues to grow with over 200,000 events since 1985. We outgrew our previous space and moved to a new, larger space in early 2020…what timing ;) While we navigated the “new normal” along with the rest of the world, we continued to provide excellent customer service to our clients as their needs evolved throughout 2020 and into 2021. As our clients’ needs changed, our product line expanded to include: PPE & safety products, procedural signage, directional and informational signage in addition to our standard attention-getting devices. Our team pulled together innovative solutions to meet our customers’ needs in real-time and we learned a lot along the way! Additionally, we launched the 4th generation of our proprietary project management software in 2021 which allows our team to meet our clients' needs even more efficiently than before. In 2021 ASAP also finalized a business transition, 6 years in the making, when Brittany Ulrich became the sole owner of ASAP Event Advertising and ASAP gained our official certification as a Woman-Owned Enterprise through WBENC. We are excited to continue offering superior project management, products, and services to our clients for years to come.

CERTIFICATIONS

513 CERTIFIED

Being aware of our footprint as a business is very important to our team. So you can imagine our excitement when we were chosen to be 513 Green Workplace Certified! This is a culmination of years of work.

ASAP is now able to recycle vinyl, polyester and metal, so less is going into our dumpster and ultimately, the landfill. Our efforts go beyond just recycling – what originally started as a warehouse reduction effort has spread to everything from office supplies and electronics. We also work with two great organizations; Queen City Commons, who turns organic waste (from our office and our homes) into compost for local farms and Terracyle, who allows us to recycle items that aren’t accepted by our local recycling facility.

It’s a work in progress!

WBE

ASAP is excited to announce that we are officially a Women’s Business Enterprise! March of 2021 marked the transfer of ownership to long-time employee, Brittany Ulrich. As a team, we could not be prouder of this certification and our new President & Sole Owner! Being a WBE Certified Business means that we are over 51% owned, controlled, or operated by Women.

We will have opportunities to access businesses who seek out diversified partnerships and the opportunity to grow our brand by continuing our education through specific leadership focused seminars. We are looking forward to what’s ahead and continuing to offer exceptional products, service and communication to our clients, vendors and partners.
