Improving through Initiatives:
At the Association of Directory Publishers, we are constantly striving to transform and better ourselves, along with our members. We have taken up several initiatives to help our members and our community as a whole.
Online and Offline Resources:
Yellow Pages remain the most trusted medium of business information. Forty-eight million adults still turn to print Yellow Pages as their number one source of local business information. And, for those who prefer an online resource, the Yellow Pages are searchable on the Internet as well.

Your company will receive tremendous exposure exhibiting at ADP’s Partners Trade Show and will gain business leads and increase your business’ brand awareness by reaching industry leaders at one time in one place.
Lower exhibiting costs last year, along with the redesign that allowed the trade show and exhibitors to be in one place, was a huge success according to the Annual Convention post survey. Exhibitors affirmed that the trade show floor plan with the new table space arrangement was more conducive for business presentations. And an added bonus was that vendors did not have to lug all the materials necessary to construct a booth, which resulted in further cost savings to their company.
ADP will provide exhibitors a table, chairs, Wi-Fi and one registration. Once registered, exhibitors will receive a form where they can order additional amenities if desired for their table space.
