Some 1,000 member dealers and 150 exhibitors convened at the Wyndham Anatole Hotel, here, earlier this month for the Nationwide Marketing Group's bi-annual PrimeTime! meeting and convention.
Nationwide's next convention will be held Feb. 15-18, 2006, when PrimeTime! returns to the Superdome in New Orleans. President Ed Kelly anticipates an expanded show floor with upwards of 200,000 square feet of exhibitor space, and hopes to up member attendance 40 percent above the 1,000 dealers on hand in Dallas in order “to create a vendor frenzy.”
PrimeTime! will move to the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas next August, followed by a February 2007 show in Orlando and a return date in Las Vegas the following August.
Here are some scenes from this year's show.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
