BEST of ASI Show 2013: Chicago

Back in July, we headed to the ASI: Chicago show, ready to be inspired with new concepts and ideas for the second half of 2013.  While ASI: Chicago is the largest industry trade show of the summer, we weren’t all that impressed with the majority of the “new” products being showcased.  However, there were a few neat things we saw and a couple we missed altogether.  Here are the winners that were just announced for “Best Of” in varying categories.

“Most Unique Product” went to the B*Fly dual energy lighter.  Ultra compact, this lighter was created with an ergonomic shape to allow better grip along with retractable mirrored wings, this lighter uses concentrated sun rays to light anything from candles and incense to kindling for your next campfire!


“Best in Technology Product” went to the Brandcharger PowerBoost.  This ultra portable brand-able item will make sure your mobile device is always ready for a power-charge whenever you need it, whilst promoting your brand at the same time!


“Best Eco-Friendly Product” went to the branded bamboo pint cup.  This 16 oz cup is made of single wall bamboo fiber and is available in a vast array of colors.  Looking for an eco-friendly gift option?  Look no further!  These adorable bamboo pints are available in a 4-pack gift option, as well.


“Best Made-in-the-USA Product” went to the handheld cooler.  This unique drink-ware accessory is simple: Add ice & water to the bottom, open the cooler and insert your can or bottle, close and DRINK!  While we missed this at the show, we do think this is a pretty neat new item!


“Best New Wearable Product” went to this fun Gabrielle draped cardigan with ruching.  Made of a 5.7 oz cotton and available in 5 functional colors, it has a seamless front for decoration and a flattering back length, falling below the hip.
