The 17th Annual EASY Access EXPO—a must attend event—takes place on Nov 2nd & 3rd at Courtyard by Marriott, 270 Concord Road, Billerica, MA 01821. This year’s theme is “Think BIGGER, THINK Home & Light Commercial”.

Said Company Owner/President and Catalyst AV board member Steve Presti, “This year’s show has two focal points; custom installation, which is our comfort zone; and light commercial application of AV, including installations and best practices. There are lucrative opportunities out there if you know what to look for in light commercial projects: doctor & dentist offices, bars, restaurants, spa/retreats, houses of worship, realty, etc.  

“Easy Access has made a concerted effort to add new commercial vendors as a move-forward strategy for 2017. We want dealers to understand that we are a resource for education in this category, with a commercial vision in place to help grow the market,” Presti stated.

The keynote speaker for the event will be Gary Kayye, an long-time industry advocate and respected insider.

Also at the EXPO speaking directly to dealers will be Kaleidescape Founder Cheena Srinivasan. Attending integrators will be some of the first to see and hear Kaleidescape’s exciting plans for the future in Custom Home AV.

In addition to meeting with dozens of vendor reps, dealers can take part in several product demos, including a “real world” presentation of outdoor lighting and audio by Coastal Source, a hair-raising Dolby Atmos theater room, and another room dedicated solely to high-resolution audio featuring Monitor Audio and high-end video featuring Kaleidescape and Da-Lite Screens.

Featured among the 40+ manufacturers showcasing at the Easy Access Expo: Atlona, Just Add Power, Catalyst AV Wire and Cable, Rapid Video Mounts, Lyric Speakers, Chief, Da-Lite, RTI, Soundtube, Russound commercial, Rachio, Nest, Skybell, Nest Cam, Ring, and eero.
