AMHERST, NEW YORK – Continuing on with the ProAV industry’s largest, information-packed dealer roadshow, Stampede, North America’s leading distributor of ProAV solutions, today announced that its Spring 2016 Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series will stop in Dallas, Texas on May 12 and in New York City on May 19. Registration for both events is now open on the Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series website.
According to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly, the 2016 Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series has been a huge success thus far with stops in Salt Lake City, Montreal, Indianapolis, and Orlando. “This tour provides dealers with information on how to build maximum sales from established product categories, as well as how to profit from entirely new product categories,” he asserted. “Additionally, our daylong conferences showcase how new product categories, such as drones, actually help to drive sales of ‘mainstay’ AV/IT solutions.
Kelly continued, “Like every stop on the 2016 BBOAV Tour & Conference Series, the Dallas and New York City events will both feature a rich mix of presentations and demonstrations that show dealers how to introduce new solutions to their customers. Any interested dealers should sign up right now!”
