DDG New Tech Tour Visits N.J.

South Plainfield,
N.J. – DDG’s 30-city New Technology Tour 2010 stopped at its local affiliate, Custom Audio Video Design (CAVD), last week.

DDG is a
consortium of regional value-added CE specialty distributors, and it has now
completed about a third of the 30 full-day presentations scheduled nationwide
among DDG’s 16 regions from April through July.

“The event was a
huge success,” said CAVD president, John Badovinac. “We had the heads of at
least 64 different custom-installation firms sign in, and few more snuck in
when we weren’t looking. The exhibit room was packed most of the time. The
dealers really appreciated Steve Firszt’s business coaching because it was
totally focused on the custom-installation business. Several participants
commented that this was much more useful than generic business coaching because
it was so specific to their business.”

The technology
exhibits included presentations from Mitsubishi on 3D television, plus guidance
about how to integrate products from Nevo, Perfect Path, Leviton, Soundcast,
TiVo, Russound, APC, Sanus, Chief, Raxxess, Cool Components, Madison Fielding
and Stealth Acoustics.
