Consumer electronics rep firm End Result, of Pittsburgh, PA, will host its 15th manufacturer and dealer show on April 15, 2015, at the Fort Rapids Water Park & Convention Center, in Columbus, OH. End Result chose this location because it is easily accessible for dealers located in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
The one day Survive-Revive-Thrive event was created to motivate, train, and educate retailers to market and sell some of the finest home audio and aftermarket automotive brands on the market. The show will feature product exhibits from home audio, video, and aftermarket automotive manufacturers represented by End Result. In 2014, End Result added marine/UTV audio, lighting, and luxury-goods manufacturers to its roster—these market sectors, too, will be part of the show’s lineup.
Ed Dalesandro, Principal of End Result, said, “The majority of our dealers don’t travel to CES, so they don’t get to experience the newest product introductions from the brands they sell in their stores. The End Result Show brings that experience closer to home. From 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., dealers will experience non-stop activities that will include an open show floor of exhibits, educational seminars, manufacturers’ training sessions, business seminars, dealer roundtables, and more, ending with a fun casino night, prizes, and contests.
“Our plans are aggressive—I feel that the business climate warrants it. Dealers that are doing things are growing while others are doing nothing and complaining that business has passed them by. Business is out there—our message is that if you want it, you have to work hard to get it. We want to help dealers revive their businesses or help them to continue thriving in a survive- or-die business climate.”
A list of seminars will be issued in the next few weeks. Pre-register here.
