Batavia, N.Y. — Custom video projector vendor Display Development has kicked off a “Toast To Relief” fundraising effort for Colorado’s flood victims, as it prepares to travel to CEDIA Expo 2013 next week in Denver.
The company will host happy hours in its Booth 3812 on Thursday and Friday, during which Display Development will ask participants to make a donation in exchange for refreshments, with proceeds going directly to the Red Cross for the benefit of Colorado flood victims, in cooperation with the Help Colorado Now Fund.
“Colorado has been like a second home to me—my Father lived in Durango, and I spent a lot of time here,” said Jim Burns, Display Development co-founder and president. “We appreciate Denver and Colorado hosting us for our convention and parties, and I want Coloradoans to know that the CEDIA community cares—we’re not just passing through during this difficult time.” “We encourage anyone who visits our booth to understand that while we’re celebrating a new line of products, we are seeking to raise funds for an important cause. We would also like to see our fellow manufacturers do the same with their events.”
To maximize the amount contributed, donations will be collected at Display Development’s Booth 3812 throughout the duration of Expo 2013.
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.
