North America’s largest ProAV dealer tour continues bringing together the best manufacturers and ProAV dealers when Stampede Presentation Products, Inc. brings its Spring 2013 Big Book of AV Tour to Columbus, Ohio, on March 8, 2013. This stop will be held at the Columbus Airport Marriott, from 9:00AM through 1:30 PM.
“With just two stops so far in 2013, our BBOAV Tour is already shaping up to be one of the best, as we are consistently delivering on our promise to bring the best manufacturers directly to our dealers in their home markets,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly declared today. “In Columbus, we’re allowing our dealers to experience and interact with even more new products, offering timely product training sessions, and extending more incentives for them to make the time to come out and see what’s new from our exhibiting manufacturers.”
According to Kelly, all attendees at the Columbus stop will receive a $50 AMEX gift card. In addition, attendees will receive a $100 Restaurant.com gift card for every CTS Certified training session they attend!
