SANTA ROSA, CA--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - American TonerServ Corporation (OTCBB: ASVP) announced its Management Team will be attending the imaging industry's leading trade show, World Expo 2007 powered by Recharger Magazine, this week in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center. World Expo continues to be the most important imaging industry business-to-business technology event in the world.

According to Mike Ducey, Sr. VP Sales & Marketing of American TonerServ, "ATS will benefit greatly from attending World Expo by identifying potential acquisitions, strengthening vendor relationships, and learning about the recent trends within our dynamic industry.
