Catalyst AV Distributor Mid-Year Meeting Sees 15% Growth Over 2017
The Catalyst AV Distributor Group held its semi-annual meeting in July at the architecturally impressive Custom Plus headquarters in Auburn, WA.
“We have experienced exceptional growth over the last 12 months in every category," said Executive Director Helge Fischer. "We are going great guns in everything from AVPRo Edge on the more commercial side to Rapid Mounts for residential and professional. We are expecting these trends to continue as the group will put even more focus on networked solutions in the 4th Quarter and 2019.”
Catalyst AV celebrated with distinguished founding members in addition to lauded new members: Mid-State Distribution, AM Distributors, Just in Time Distribution and Dorrance Supply company. Numerous guest speakers and presenters were on hand from Wavenet, EERO, Sound United, Rapid Video Mount and AVPro Edge.
The Catalyst AV marketing arm reaches 17,000 integrators on a weekly basis, through webinars, training in the warehouse locations, a constant stream of educational and promotional HTML’s and much more. Featuring 27 easy to access warehouse locations—with more coming soon—solidifies the Catalyst AV commitment to dealer/integrator support.
