PowerHouse Alliance members are preparing their regional dealers for 2016 and opening new locations to create new integrator relationships, as well as scheduling dealer shows to showcase manufacturers and advanced training on new products.
PowerHouse member Sierra Select, which covers northern California and northern Nevada for the Alliance, will participate in the 7th Annual Northern CA CI Expo on Thursday, November 5. Sierra Select is one of several local distributors and manufacturer representatives who will help showcase new products some dealers may have missed at CEDIA EXPO in a one-day event.
“The CI Expo has always been a great venue for us to reach some of our dealers who can’t make the trek out to CEDIA Expo each year, but are still interested in seeing the latest products shaping the marketplace,” said Arnie Vierra, manager of Sierra Select Distributors. “We are able to connect with both new and familiar faces in our dealer base and ensure that all our customers are up to date as we work to close out the year on a high note in our region.”
The team at 21st Century Distributing will officially open the doors of their new Nashville, TN-area location to dealers during the first few days of November. To celebrate its fifth location, and the overall 38th location for the Alliance, 21st Century will have product specials, exclusive giveaways, numerous counter days, and cocktail hours throughout the month of December. They invite dealers to come by 871 Seven Oaks Blvd. Suite 200 in Smyrna, TN to scope out the new location and join in on the celebration throughout November and December.
Following its fall show in Atlanta, member Audio America will host its 2015 Miami Dealer Show on Thursday, November 12. There will be manufacturer representatives on from 6 p.m. EST to 10 p.m. EST to introduce local dealers to their newest products in the residential AV, security, and 12-volt sectors. The Audio America team has also arranged for prizes and giveaways to happen throughout the evening alongside food, drinks, and music.
“Over the past few months, we’ve been able to bring in most of our customers to events across our territory where they can get facetime with the most influential manufacturers in the residential AV, security and 12 volt spaces,” said Jonathan Elster, CEO at Audio America. “With our final dealer show of the year, we want to highlight the trends that will carry into 2016 and hold onto the momentum we generated this year.”
