Capitol's 2011 CLI Expo gathered a full roster of 52 manufacturers and technology developers, as well as 140 attendees to the Oak Ridge Conference Center in Chaska, MN, on May 1 and May 2.
The 2011 CLI Expo featured more than 70 classes from over 50 vendors.
“We clearly provided the right stuff at the right time,” said Jeff Kussard, Capitol’s director of strategic development. “I wish I had a dollar for every time someone told me that we need to do this again, and soon. By focusing on the most relevant technologies, in-demand products and sales and marketing tools for the current market, our attendees were able to gain months’ worth of knowledge in only two days.”
“The 2011 CLI Expo had fantastic dealer attendance and participation," said Katharine Wheeler, director of sales, Western region, for Key Digital. "The expo and dealers were perfect for our target market.”
Among the consumer technology presenters at a special Technology Showcase were Panasonic, Monster, Mitsubishi, Russound, OmniMount, Key Digital, and Lutron. More than 70 classes from over 50 vendors were presented over the course of the two-day event.
