Cleveland area ProAV dealers who are interested in learning how to profit from drones, 4K, WePresent, the Internet of Things, and all of the exciting new innovations transforming today’s ProAV industry, should make it a point to attend the Stampede Big Book of AV Tour & Series when it comes to the Cleveland Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio on Tuesday November 17th. The event runs from 9:00AM — 2:00PM and is also featuring a program packed with CTS-certified training sessions, compelling subject-specific presentations by executives from leading manufacturers, and the opportunity to win a free DJI Drone! Registration for this not-to-be-missed event is now open here.
“The Cleveland stop is really a showcase for all of the amazing new technologies and product categories that are now available to ProAV dealers,” explained Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly. “The opportunities presented by Drones, 4K, and the Internet of Things are going to be at the top of an agenda that is really packed with solid business- building information that dealers can profit from right now."
In particular, Kelly emphasized that 4K is hot and getting a lot hotter as a product resolution and every dealer needs to understand how to connect 4K content to the latest display technology.
Collaborating with WePresent is another hot trend that will be featured in depth at the Cleveland stop. More and more, educators and corporations are looking for both one-to-many and many-to-many presentation capabilities. WePresent makes it both affordable and easy to do.
According to Kelly, dozens of leading manufacturers will be on hand exhibiting their latest technologies and new product offerings in literally every major product category that matters to today’s ProAV dealer — audio, video, display, projection, lighting and staging, digital signage, conferencing, digital content creation, networking, signal distribution, and much more. “Like every stop on the BBOAV Tour & Conference Series, the Cleveland program will feature a rich mix of presentations and demonstrations that show dealers how to introduce new solutions to their customers and upgrade their portfolio of traditional product categories with new model introductions by leading category-specific manufacturers."
The CTS-certified training sessions and presentations commence at 9:30 a.m., following a complimentary breakfast. Sessions and presentations include “Atlona, 5 Things You Need to Know Before Installing 4K” by Amelia Vrabel, National Sales Manager at Atlona; “Overview of the Drone/ UAS Industry and Business Potential” by Fred Bivetto, Dean at School of Flight Training at Unmanned Vehicle University; “Cut the Cords: BYOD and Wireless Presentation from any Device” by Heidi Mercer, Business Development Manager at WePresent; “Drone Video Systems: A New AV Category for a New Age of Opportunities” by Eric Jameson, Stampede Product Manager, Drones; “Samsung, Sorting Out Media Players for Digital Signage” by Jonathon Brawn, Brawn Consulting; and finally “NEC 10 Steps to a Successful Video Wall” by Mark Weniger.
“The speakers leading these training sessions and presentations have been hand-picked to provide the best possible experience for our attendees,” Kelly stressed. “They’re industry leaders who can provide ProAV dealers and integrators with the proper training, business insight, and technology updates to stay ahead of the herd in an increasingly competitive marketplace."
What’s more, each attendee will be entered into a drawing for a DJI Drone and receive both a $50 Amex card and a $500 Stampede credit (for those who qualify.)
