The 12 PowerHouse Alliance distributor members have announced a full May schedule for dealers and integrators across the country offering more than 30 education sessions and celebrating the grand opening of a new location. In addition to these events, members are also launching a rebate program on all A2V product purchases.
Starting in Q2 2018, dealers who purchase a minimum of $500 of A2V products per quarter, will receive a 10-percent credit in the following quarter on all A2V products purchased.
“As a leading national consortium of distributors in the AV industry, we feel it’s important to do whatever we can to listen to and support our dealers with the right tools and services they need to be successful,” Holzer said. “Dealers are tired of having to buy more and more quarter to quarter in order to achieve manufacturer rebates. Our program is simple and competitive. That combined with quality products, great margins and excellent warranty terms, makes A2V a win for our dealers.”
