A strong turnout at Cardinal Electronics' recent dealer show, combined with solid order-writing, may signal the return of customer confidence, the distributor said.
More than 100 dealers attended the show here last month and placed sufficient orders to ensure ample inventory for the coming holiday selling season, Cardinal said.
“The dealers not only showed up for the event, they stepped up and placed orders, which I feel is a positive sign going into the fourth quarter,” observed Cardinal president Bill Lyons.
Also encouraging dealers to step up were special once-a-year pricing programs supported by Cardinal and its vendors, including Yamaha, JVC, Sanus, Monster, Denon and CPS Warranty.
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.
