The PowerHouse Alliance’s 12 distributor members welcomed summer with two grand-opening events, supporting industry shows, and providing a variety of trainings for their dealers.
Two open houses come from members MRI and Sierra Select Distributors. MRI will celebrate the grand opening of its new Woburn, MA facility (office and warehouse) on June 7, from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The facility purportedly offers the first open-platform shopping experience in their territory, featuring more than 100 brands. Visitors can tour the warehouse-style shopping area, see new technology demonstrations from over 50 vendors, and enjoy food, drinks, prizes, and special pricing.
Sierra Select Distributors’ grand opening of their new will call self-shopping area at their North Highlands, CA location will debut with a week-long event from June 19 to June 23. Attendees can enjoy BBQ, enter to win prizes from the daily draw, take advantage of daily specials and participate in trainings from Samsung, Clare Controls, Lutron, Luxul, Sanus, Polk, and KEF.
Both 21st Century Distributing and Volutone participate in industry shows this month. 21st Century Distributing just concluded another annual Integration Innovation Roadshow across the Southeast, and invites dealers to attend booth #907 at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) from June 13 to June 16 at the Music City Center in Nashville, TN, to take advantage of show specials and surveillance demonstrations from Just Add Power and others.
Volutone starts the month with a three-hour URC’s MX HomePro live training at all seven of its locations in California and Nevada, available in morning and afternoon sessions from June 6 to June 9. Then Volutone will be hosting a Security Showcase between June 6 to June 22 at its Van Nuys, Irvine, and San Diego locations, with vendor demonstrations, plus a daily 55-inch TV giveaway. Contractors and custom AV integrators are invited to the showcase for one-on-one time with leading surveillance and intrusion manufacturers, plus lunch.
For giveaways, and to see the ultimate expression of cinema-quality video with LG’s new Signature OLED wallpaper TV, dealers in Florida can attend a LG Line Show from Audio America in Palm Beach, FL on June 28 and Miami, FL, on June 29. Dealers can take Yamaha new-model training at E.C.D. in Houston on June 21 and E.D.I. will hold Yamaha CI Training Events at both its Portland and Seattle locations on June 27 and 28, respectively.
Dealers can become Clare Controls certified in several of member E.C.D.’s Texas locations from May 31 to June 2, or from Autco in St. Louis, MO, on June 27. C.E.D. is hosting Clare Controls Fusion certification and Resolution Integration on June 20. A sponsored certification event in Phoenix, AZ, will allow dealers to become certified and receive discounted product training kits and promotions from Mountain West Distributors’ Clare Controls Smart Home and Security Training event on June 27.
Luxul Trainings are available from two members this month; C.E.D. hosts Luxul and Sonos training on June 7 in Bloomington, MN, and Davis Distribution welcomes dealers on June 27 in Indianapolis, IN. C.E.D. also has 2GIG training on June 27 in Northbrook, IL and Grill Master Days with Polk Audio and Heos on June 22 in Norbrook, IL, June 23 in Elk Grove Village, IL, and June 29 in New Berlin, WI.
