LAS VEGAS – ProSource, the BrandSource buying group’s specialty A/V and custom install division, held its annual CES eve reception here at Bally’s Monday night.
The umbrella group for independent CE dealers is comprised of the Progressive Retailers Organization (PRO Group) and Home Entertainment Source (HES).
In brief remarks, PRO and ProSource president/COO Dave Workman said the group was happy to put 2012 behind it, and eBay VP Michael Jones reminded members of the online opportunities his company offers through its cyber storefronts.
The soiree marked the first for newest PRO Group member Trans World Entertainment, the 350-store music, movie and audio chain which joined PRO earlier this month, and the last for Glen Rogers, the Tweeter and Ultimate Electronics veteran who is retiring after six years as PRO’s business manager and more than 40 years in the industry.
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.
