D&H Distributing, distributor of computer products and consumer electronics, is hosting the first of two Mid-Atlantic Technology Shows this week at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pa.
The event, taking place Wednesday, June 6, from 8 a.m. through 9:30 p.m., will feature 11 seminars or 17 total hours of training opportunities on subjects including networking, voice, digital signage, HDTV, network cameras and more. According to the company, the event will also feature more than 100 exhibitors including Microsoft, Cisco and Linksys.
As part of the show, the company has planned a new feature called "Digital Home Alley" that will showcase key trends in home networking, entertainment and small office/home office solutions and will feature presentations from vendors like Bedrock Learning, NEC and Panasonic.
This year the company said that it has decided not to hold its annual stand-alone digital convergence expo so that it could instead work elements of the event into each of its regional shows. The Digital Home Alley represents an attempt on behalf of D&H to make information on these subjects more readily available to its members year-round.
D&H kicked off its trade show schedule in February with its West Coast Technology Show. The company has augmented its schedule and it is planning two Mid-Atlantic Events this year, this one and another in the fall. It will also host a New England event in August.
In other D&H news, the distributor entered a distribution agreement with General Imaging to carry GE-branded digital cameras ranging from $149 to $399 retail, and also added Aleratec's entire line of DVD/CD duplicating and publishing solutions.
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.
