Pittsburgh, PA—March 28, 2016—Consumer electronics rep firm End Result, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has confirmed that its 16th electronics expo for home A/V and 12-volt retailers was a resounding success. Held on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, in Washington, PA brought in 168 people from 61 dealers from Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
The one-day Survive—Revive—Thrive event offered dealers who didn’t attend CES, a preview of the latest products from 25 exhibitors, educational & business seminars, manufacturers’ training sessions, and an opportunity to have some fun and network with one another.
Ed Dalesandro, Principal of End Result, said, “I would like to sincerely thank everyone involved with this years show. We had record breaking attendance and exhibitors wrote more business at this event than ever before. The displays were more complex and made for an engaging show floor!” Continuing he said, “A lot of my dealers don’t go to CES, so this show gives them the opportunity to experience the hot products and talk with the people behind them. I tried to offer seminars in areas that my dealers need help, like social media. It’s especially important these days where most reps and manufacturers are doing less yet asking for more.”
Comments from exhibitors were enthusiastic: Jim McGall, Director of Sales for Wolf Cinema said, “Great show Ed, no one does it better… from the show planning, to communications and then execution—you hit with all cylinders clicking. I enjoyed the time with our dealers and industry friends, and look forward to next year’s event. Count us in!”
Joe Finn, Director of Sales for NEAR said, “We played NEAR speakers for the dealers, put products in their hands, talked to them about connecting large outdoor systems—and probably saw more dealers than we would have if we spent a week in the territory. This show took a lot of effort, but it was a great experience. Thank you Ed for organizing it.”
Keith Dowd, Director of North American Sales for Paradigm & Anthem said, “This show was a hit and well worth everyone’s time and efforts (both the vendors and the dealers who made time to attend in record numbers). It confirms what we all know—that salespeople are important, that even the best products don’t sell themselves and that people want to learn from and buy from, other people. We wish more reps across the country did similar events.”
