Consumer electronics rep firm End Result, of Pittsburgh, PA, reports that its 12th annual electronics expo for home AV and 12-volt retailers was a success.
Held March 6 at the Fort Rapids Resort & Convention Center, in Columbus, OH, the show—themed Get Better—offered dealers a chance to preview a unique line-up of products; attend educational seminars, manufacturers’ training sessions, and networking opportunities; and participate in roundtable discussions.
A snowstorm did not deter the more than 117 attendees who packed such seminars as, “How to Increase Floor Traffic,” “How to Compete with the Internet,” “Projector and Screen Tricks & Tips,” “Paradigm Anthem Training,” and more. The Get Better event concluded with Casino Night, which gave everyone a chance to unwind after a full day of activities.
Highlights of the event included the debut of the Wolf Cinema SDC-8 projector, demonstrated with a Screen Innovations 110-inch Zero Edge Black Diamond screen; Paradigm’s demo of a 5.1 channel system of in-wall speakers; and a display of Paradigm’s new Shift line of “receiver less” speaker options. Russound featured its DMS3.1 Media Streamer and its iPad/iPod wireless multiroom interface. Rob Keeler of BDI attended to showcase the company’s line of audio/video furniture, and Cindy Sherwood of Supersonic, displayed a full line of audio/video products for the home and car.
Attending dealers included Sound & Visions, of Akron, OH; Genesis Audio, of Columbus, OH; Audio Craft, of Cleveland, OH; Stereo Shop, of Greensburg, PA; and many others.
