AVAD LLC, one of North America’s leading distributors of custom electronics, has introduced its 2011 Opportunity Tour, a series of one-night only events that will introduce new solutions dealers can use to immediately impact their businesses. Available AVAD customers only, this tour is the first time AVAD has provided this type of dealer experience by introducing six new products from four world-class brands including Bose, Sharp, Optoma and Lutron.
Registration is now open for these events occurring from Tuesday, October 11 to Wednesday, November 9th at select AVAD branches throughout the United States and Canada. Each stop on the Opportunity Tour will begin with a short networking reception at 4 p.m. followed by product breakout sessions. The evening will conclude with a dinner buffet and question and answer session. AVAD dealers will profit from these events by gaining new product knowledge and unique solutions that will take their businesses to another level.
“The Opportunity Tour is a unique chance for our most proactive dealers to see new products in new categories – one of which has never even existed before,” said Jim Annes, vice president and general manager of AVAD. “We want to provide more knowledge and more opportunities for success and these tour stops will enable dealers to immediately reach more customers. Whether it is a home or commercial installation, a condo or a mansion, this is a unique chance to grow their business.”
