D&H Shoots the Works on Upcoming Event
D&H Distributing, which handles both computer products and consumer electronics, said the first of its two 2007 Mid-Atlantic Technology Shows will feature 11 seminars for a total of more than 17 hours of training, “presenting more educational opportunities and assorted topics than any of the Mid-Atlantic shows in the event’s nine-year history.”
The D&H Mid-Atlantic Summer Technology Show will be held June 6 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pa., from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
More than 100 exhibitors are expected to show their wares at the event. Included are heavy hitters from the IT world such as Microsoft, Cisco Systems, Linksys, Ricoh, Panasonic Toughbooks, Netgear, D-Link, Intel, AMD, Seagate, Acer. and Lenovo.
A new “Digital Home Alley” will showcase key trends in home networking, entertainment and small office-home office solutions. Presentations will include digital home networking (Bedrock Learning), digital signage (NEC) and network cameras (Panasonic). D&H calls the Digital Home Alley “a turning point” that infuses “elements of its popular digital convergence event into each of its regional shows, instead of mounting a separate convergence expo, making this in-demand material more accessible throughout the year.”
“The diversity of the training sessions for this event, from notebooks to HDTV to SMB servers, goes beyond the typical regional channel offering,” said Dan Schwab, D&H’s vice president of marketing. “We’re excited to provide such a breadth of content. The schedule has become a proving ground for new technologies across the board, one that will help our customers increase their core competencies no matter what their current strengths are. Now IT resellers, CE dealers and everyone in between can gain first-hand knowledge of the vast scope of markets represented at all of our regional events. The growth of both our schedule and our turnout is a testament to what a powerful draw hands-on education can be, and how interrelated the different verticals have become.”
