Amherst, N.Y. — Stampede’s Spring 2014 Stampede Big Book of AV (BBOAV) Tour, will roll into Montreal, Canada on Feb. 20, where A/V industry dealers and manufacturers will showcase their latest solutions at the Sheraton Montreal Airport hotel.
“Each stop on the 2014 tour features a compelling mix of product demonstration, business building idea sessions, networking opportunities — and more than a few surprises,” said Stampede’s president and COO Kevin Kelly.
The Montreal stop will feature a presentation by Epson’s Judy Burns on the present and future of 3LCD technology. Burns has previously represented brands such as InFocus and Proxima, making her an expert in the A/V channel.
“Every stop on the BBOAV Tour offers attendees an interactive and engaging experience,” Kelly said. “Judy Burns is at the forefront of the A/V industry today and her perspective on the current and future shape of the ProAV industry is certain to be compelling.”
According to Kelly, BBOAV Tour attendees will also learn how they can immediately begin profiting from the new era of The Internet of Things (IOT). To further address the “Internet of Things” phenomenon, the Montreal stop will feature a designated area for IOT manufacturers, identified by pop-up banners and stands.
Additionally, each session will earn attendees a 0.5 CTS RU Credit. Stampede will be offering event incentives such as $500 Stampede credit, a $100 Restaurant.com gift card and a $50 gift card for attending the BBOAV Tour. Every attendee will also be entered into a drawing to win a 42-inch LG LCD HD television.
The Stampede 2014 Big Book of AV Tour will continue through the spring on the following schedule:
