D&H Distributing, a provider of SMB and consumer technologies, will host its Mid-Atlantic Fall Technology Trade Show on October 26 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center, Hershey, PA. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m., and seminars run from 12:15 to 5:00 p.m.
D&H expects close to 900 reseller, retailer, and dealer attendees, and more than 100 vendor partners are participating. Registration is at no cost to D&H customers.
As D&H’s trade events transition from a selling event to a more comprehensive training venue, this year’s fall show will feature educational sessions from Microsoft, Cisco, Intel, HP, Brother, and Lenovo.
In addition to the seminar vendors, manufacturers participating in the event include ASUS, Acer, Crucial, Dell, Epson, Linksys, Logitech, MSI, Samsung, StarTech.com, TP-Link, NETGEAR, and Zyxel. Vendors making their debut at the fall show include Canary Connect (smart security), DataLocker (encryption solutions), Kendall Howard (racks and mounts), and Nest Labs (smart home devices).
The distributor will debut its new D&H Connected Home and Digital Office exhibit, where attendees can get a first-hand look at working smart home and office technologies in a realistic setting. This suite of devices will illustrate an automated, modern, living/work space. Smart home security and thermostat systems, wireless range extenders, electrical outlets, remotes, and appliances will be featured, including the Amazon Echo assistant, plus products from Linksys/Belkin, Westinghouse, Ezviz, Emerson Electric, and NETGEAR.
D&H’s Gaming Experience Booth has expanded at each show since its first appearance last fall, featuring innovative gaming gear that attendees can test in-person. Gaming Experience vendors at the show include software sponsor Activision, plus Blue Mic, Dell, HP, Microsoft, Xbox, PNY, and Nintendo.
D&H will also host a line-up of propriety partner enablement booths, highlighting such D&H programs as Partner Services Marketing, the Solutions Lab training venue, the Solutions & Support program, the K-12 market program, and D&H Credit Services. The event will include door prizes, with seminar prizes of a $100 American Express gift card for one winner at each session, and a Grand Prize of a $500 American Express gift card sponsored by Dell.
“It’s been an exhilarating year at D&H Distributing, wherein we’ve added resources and personnel,” said Mary Campbell, vice president of marketing at D&H. “This show is the culmination of a successful trade event season in the U.S. market, delivering the latest innovations and product knowledge to our customers as we move toward a prosperous 2018. We’ve always worked hard to support our dealers and retailers by arming them with tools to capitalize on the latest market developments. Our evolving trade shows are a growing part of that strategy.”
