Los Angeles, Calif. – January 14, 2015 –AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of custom electronics, announced today the kickoff of Vendopalooza 2015, the exclusive touring trade show for custom installers. The schedule will include a dozen events throughout the year, beginning with the launch on January 22 at AVAD’s Irvine, Calif. branch.
2015 marks the seventh year of Vendopalooza, which premiered in 2008 as a series of one-day events bringing together AVAD’s dealer solutions and the combined resources of the industry’s leading manufacturers.
“AVAD Vendopalooza has become its own phenomenon. Distributor shows were somewhat common when we got started, but being the first one to take it on the road has been a huge success,” said Lei Lei Trock, Senior Marketing Manager of AVAD. “We have held 96 events in the last six years, which has enabled us to shake hands with over 10,000 dealers over that time period as they were introduced to the value of Vendopalooza. It's not just about aggregating the products, it's also about aggregating training and information."
The list of benefits and training opportunities has grown over the years, adding to the 10 brands that have been recurring participants in the event every year since its introduction: Boston Acoustics, Denon, Gefen, JVC, Marantz, Niles, Peerless, Polk, Samsung and Sharp. The 2015 tour will include more than 40 featured manufacturers offering dealers more face to face access. All events will include live demonstrations of new technology directly from the product experts, exclusive promotions discounting select products from major brands as well as valuable prize giveaways.
