Harrisburg, Pa. – D&H Distributing will hold its New England 2013 Technology Show on Aug. 6 at the Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel, Quincy, Mass.
The distributor expects close to 500 attendees and more than 60 participating vendors for this event. Registration begins at 11 a.m., with seminars initiating at noon. The exhibit floor opens at 3 p.m.
The event will feature six seminar presentations from Cisco, Cloud Nation, HP, Intel, Lenovo and Microsoft, on topics including next-generation mobile computing, cloud solutions, Windows 8, touch-based technologies and more.
Additional exhibitors include Acer, ASUS, Kensington, Logitech, Philips, Samsung, Toshiba and Western Digital to name a few; plus a roster of accessories, peripherals and components from emerging and established brands.
Vendors who are making a first showing at the New England 2013 Technology Show include CODi (notebooks, cases, bags), NTT Advanced Technology Corp. (mobile telecomm), Ooma (VoIP), QNAP (storage), and Synology America (storage).
The Microsoft booth will spotlight the latest Windows 8 touch-enabled devices, displayed as they would be utilized in a variety of real life settings (e.g., a coffee shop, an airport, a home office). The exhibit will help dealers experience how the touch-enabled, cloud-empowered, multi-app Windows 8 interface shapes the user experience under various circumstances, to help inform the dealer and retailer’s sales strategies, D&H said.
Customers can also learn more about D&H’s Partner Services marketing resources at the show. Attendees who have their picture taken with the Partner Services mascot will have those photos uploaded via a designated D&H Twitter hashtag, and can enter an additional prize drawing.
D&H will facilitate special show-day-only pricing for items ordered on the floor. One winner per seminar will receive a Case Logic 30-inch XN Urban Rolling Duffel; and one Grand Prize winner will receive a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad with Retina Display plus an accessory bundle, sponsored by Logitech.
“This year’s New England Show delivers an innovative look at new products and services, whether it’s the latest Windows touch-enabled capabilities, to emerging mobile solutions, to the newest entries in our own ongoing Partner Services marketing program,” said Mary Campbell, marketing VP at D&H Distributing.
“The opportunities at this event include an exceptional collection of technologies, expertise and veteran personnel from some of the industry’s most respected manufacturers. We love being able to supply our customers with such a range of resources under one roof, all in one day,” she said.
