It was time again for the RW crew to head to the annual Asics Gold Account Meeting held this year at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort just outside of Austin, Texas. This annual meeting is held to provide the top Asics running specialty accounts across the nation an opportunity to meet face to face with key people at Asics and to see the upcoming Asics product for future seasons.
Check out the newest “Insider” Video up on the site featuring Terry Schalow, the Product Line Manager for Asics Footwear. Terry is a long time industry leader who discusses the new Tempo Run Collection of footwear. This lineup features shoes targeted directly at the Go-Fast crowd who tend to gravitate towards lighter weight, more responsive footwear. Terry talks about updates to classics such as the Gel Speedstar, the return of the Gel DS Racer and insight into new introductions like the Gel Tarther. Terry also discusses future plans for the Tempo Run Collection. Check it out exclusively from Running Warehouse.
Tami, Jonathan and I just returned from the annual Asics Gold Account Meeting held at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale AZ. This event brings the top 200 Asics dealers who specialize in Running Specialty products from across the US. We had many breakout sessions over the course of 3 days that focused not only on the new footwear, apparel and accessories for the fall, but also presentations from industry leaders such as Jim Dion, a well regarded retail sales consultant as well as Simon Bartold, the chief research consultant for Asics who lives in Australia.
