The PowerHouse Alliance’s 13 distributor members assembled in Pittsburgh for their ninth year as a distributor alliance earlier this month.
Held July 9-13, it marked the sixth annual national sales meeting and was accompanied by over 30 vendor partners.
The three-day event included vendor meetings, one-on-one distributor discussions, and team activities to refocus group goals as they prepare for CEDIA in September.
A keynote address from NFL veteran Chris Hoke, who spent his 11-year professional career as a defensive lineman with the Pittsburgh Steelers, kicked off the annual sales meeting. The former athlete made connections between the struggles he faced as a professional in the NFL to those in the world of business and sales.

Hoke encouraged the regional distributors to take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way in each aspect of their business and to continue looking for innovative ways to grow and prosper in their individual regions.

In addition to meetings and discussions, members enjoyed a night of fun and bonding over axe throwing at Pittsburgh’s LumberJaxes, lobster rolls from Cousins Maine Lobster truck, and Shaved Ice from McFeely’s Arctic Ice truck. Vendors and members also took part in the annual national meeting softball game followed by dinner at a Pittsburgh staple, Primanti Brothers.
The PowerHouse Alliance members will meet next at CEDIA in San Diego, Sept. 4 -8, and will exhibit in the PowerHouse Alliance booth 2925.
