Edge Group Hails Recent Dealer Outreach Successes
The Edge Distributors Group, a network of 14 independently-owned regional distributors, said it reached “more than 850” dealers with its recent Planar and Furman Sound road shows and its Dallas-based Consumer Electronics Expo.
The Planar/Furman shows took place between January and March, with stops in Texas, New York, California, Maryland, Georgia, Oregon, Florida, Washington,
Indiana, Illinois, Colorado, Missouri and Massachusetts, schooling more than 450 dealers in the process.
Consumer Electronics Expo 2007, sponsored by Edge member Electronic Lane, Sunbelt Associates & Distributing and Southwest Electronix, was held March 31 and April 1. More than 400 dealers attended, said Edge.
“We reached over 850 dealers with these two initiatives alone,” said Edge Group Director Katye Schmoldt. “As custom distributors, we recognize that our most valuable products are technical expertise and training. Giving dealers the competitive advantage they need is our number one priority, and these events exemplify our commitment to our dealers’ success.”
Edge said more training initiatives are on the way this summer and fall. This month, it will launch a video-oriented road show in select territories with NEC, Planar and Sencore. Stay tuned to customretailer.net for dates, places and times.
