Colorado vNet’s “Ultimate Control Tour” will begin at CEDIA 2009. Beginning in Atlanta, the 60-city road show will travel across the United States, Canada, and Mexico over the course of 90 days.
The tour will showcase a multitude of new products, control capabilities, and features of the Colorado vNet home control and digital audio-video systems. The tour will also feature afternoon sessions specific to custom integrators with new product demonstrations including the new family of touchscreens, remote control tablets, and A/V Control, along with technical and sales training designed to help integrators close more business.
Colorado vNet will also host demos and drinks in the evening to build awareness among homeowners, builders, architects, and designers, with the goal of ultimately driving business to dealers. Admission is free for both sessions, but registration is required via www.coloradovnet.com/tour or 866.320.9392.
“We have to spend our marketing dollars wisely-just as any business in this economy,” Colorado vNet’s director of marketing, said. “We questioned if it was more important to spend gobs of money to ship our 40×50 booth to CEDIA–or provide the support necessary for our dealers to close more business. We could have pulled out of the show altogether like many other companies, but we chose to both support the CEDIA organization and our dealers, whether they attend CEDIA or not.”
“Not everyone can spend the money and time to travel to CEDIA. With the Ultimate Control Tour, we’re bringing the CEDIA experience to our dealers.” VP of sales for Colorado vNet, Mike Malone, said. “It’s just the kind of support our dealers have requested-they want to know everything about our product offering so they can better communicate its benefits to their clients, inevitably selling more systems.”
Colorado vNet is also offering an added incentive for integrators to attend the tour. All integrator attendees will be entered to win the “Ultimate Red Rocks Concert Package” where the winner and a guest will attend a 2010 concert of their choice at the legendary outdoor venue in Colorado. Airfare, hotel, limo and more will be provided. The drawing will be held at the close of the tour in December.For complete tour and prize details, or to register, visit www.coloradovnet.com/tour or call 866.320.9392.
