New showroom location hosts dealer awards, exclusive deals and exhibits
Los Angeles, Calif. – May 20, 2014 – AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of custom electronics, hosted an open house at its new Nashville branch on May 7 to highlight a larger showroom and more streamlined ordering process as well as offer one-day promotions from a dozen major brands and other exclusive benefits for area integrators. The festivities included an award ceremony for three top area dealers in recognition of exemplary sales and integration.
Additions to AVAD Nashville at the new location include new product displays featuring the latest solutions from dealer-preferred brands and a new conference room that offers a private entrance for high profile customer meetings and additional office space for dealers to use.
Jon Zabel, Director of North American Sales for AVAD, attended the event to present three awards to top area dealers acknowledging their achievements for the year. Jacob Abbott of Visual Concepts received the Phoenix Award for most improved sales, Hailey Williamson and Brad Moss of Williamson Moss Design received the Top Gun Award for highest sales in 2013 and Philip Brown of Crosswaves Systems Integration won the Firestarter Award, which recognizes the top new dealer for 2014.
“AVAD Nashville has always been a solutions center for Tennessee dealers, and by listening to their needs for more convenient product access we’ve been able to grow in a way that best serves them,” said Lei Lei Trock, Senior Marketing Manager for AVAD. “Having 23 North American locations is a huge differentiator, and by constantly improving we hope to continue showing our customers that training, promotions and support are just the tip of the iceberg of our distribution model.”
Completed with the goal of making it faster and more convenient for dealers to conduct business, the renovations make AVAD Nashville the latest branch to remodel following the grand reopening of AVAD Seattle in April. New benefits include drive-up doors on the back of the warehouse to help dealers get in and out quicker as well as a corner lot which provides easier access to the back of the building.
Beginning at 9:00 a.m., guests explored the new showroom, enjoyed great food and interacted with some of the industry’s top brands. The branch now features a newly designed theater room, remodeled training facility for AVAD University courses, new will call area and updated dealer-friendly loading dock for improved convenience.
Key AVAD manufacturers attended the open house including Samsung, RTI, URC, Lutron, Core Brands products, Current Audio, Peerless, Gefen, Martin Logan, Tivo, and more. Fans of AVAD’s highly-popular Vendopalooza and VendoCOMM event series have come to recognize the familiar benefits of promotions, giveaways, raffles and live product demonstrations at AVAD branch events.
