LOS ANGELES, Calif. – October 28, 2013 – AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of custom electronics, announced today the start of its third annual Opportunity Tour, a series of one-night-only events that will introduce new products and solutions that dealers can use to immediately grow their businesses. Open exclusively to AVAD customers and held at local AVAD branches throughout North America, each event will introduce dealers to the latest product strategies as well as offer new promotions from major brands including Bose, Lutron and Samsung.
Each stop on the Opportunity Tour will begin with a short networking reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by product breakout sessions. The evening will include a dinner buffet as well as a question and answer session, concluding at 8:30 p.m., with AVAD’s team of experts and representatives from vendors. AVAD will offer exclusive promotions and discounts to Opportunity Tour attendees. Additionally, each branch location will award a Samsung Galaxy 10.1″ tablet to one attendee at random.
“The AVAD Opportunity Tour gives our dealers additional business development tools to immediately grow their customer base,” said Jim Annes, vice president and general manager of AVAD. “Integrators who remain the most successful are those who invest in training and seek the most valuable information, and AVAD is proud to offer unique opportunities to engage dealers in their own markets to help elevate their respective businesses.”
