Dallas, TX — Consumer Electronics Expo 2008, which is hosted by The EDGE Distributors Group member Electronic Lane, along with Electronic Lane Mobile, Sunbelt Associates & Distributing, and Southwest Electronix, will be held at the Embassy Suites Dallas-Frisco Hotel, Convention Center & Spa in Frisco, Texas, May 31-June 1, 2008.
This years event offers dealers information-critical seminars and training sessions, access to factory representatives, special show prices, and an exhibition of the newest innovations and top brands from over 75 leading manufacturers of home and mobile electronics products. More than 600 dealers are expected to attend.
There are several exciting changes in store for this years event, said Katye McGregor, director of The EDGE Distributors Group and coordinator of the Consumer Electronics Expo 2008. For starters, we have moved the event (from the Marriott Quorum Dallas Hotel) to the Embassy Suites Dallas-Frisco Hotel, Convention Center & Spa in Frisco. Its large venue makes for a bigger show and offers the convenience of having all manufacturer exhibits and events under one roof.
This year we also have four additional Dallas-area distributors — A&W, ERA Marketing, Lesco and PCI — co-sponsoring the event; each bringing many new dealers, exhibitors and technologies, McGregor said. Like the past three Consumer Electronics Expos, it will be fun to attend, too. It is designed to be informal but informative, and dealers will have plenty of opportunity to spend time with each of the exhibitors.
Home Electronics manufacturers exhibiting products include Audio Source, Chief, Denon, Dynamat, Earthquake, Ethereal, Furman, Gefen, ICM, Jamo, JVC, KEF, Leviton, LG, NEC, NuVision, Parasound, Phoenix Gold, Pinnacle, Planar, Planet Waves, Russound, Sanus, Sonance, Terk, Universal Remote Control, ViewSonic, Vutec, Xantech, and Yamaha.
Mobile Electronics manufacturers exhibiting products include Accele Vision, ASC, AutoTek, Boston Acoustics, Boyo, Cerwin-Vega, Code Alarm, Compustar, Crunch, Diamond Audio, Harman/Kardon Mobile, HiFonics, Hooker Audio, Hushmat, Infinity Car Audio, JBL Car Audio, Kenwood, Massive Audio, MB Quart, Metra Kits, MTX Car, NRG, OEM Radio, PIE, Pioneer Car, SAS Bazooka, Zapco, and Valor.
