Lutron, Middle Atlantic, Vantage/Legrand, Aprilaire, Gefen to Sponsor, Attend Elan’s TRIO Dealer Summit
Multi-room A/V and home control manufacturer Elan Home Systems said lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics and enclosure systems manufacturer Middle Atlantic Products will be Headline VIP Sponsors for Elan’s upcoming TRIO 2007 Dealer Summit. Additionally, lighting control/home automation manufacturer Vantage/Legrand, HVAC solutions manufacturer Aprilaire and connectivity vendor Gefen signed on as Sponsors.
The invitation-only TRIO event, which is expected to draw hundreds of Elan dealers, will be held May 17 to 19 at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Ky. The theme of the event will be “Wired and Inspired,” which reflects its focus on networking and the sharing of best practices and innovative ideas.
“The magic of TRIO is truly in the dealer interaction,” said Paul Starkey, Elan’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We are delighted that both Lutron and Middle Atlantic see the tremendous value in that and have rejoined us as our Headline VIP Sponsors. Their participation is proof that TRIO has been a win for them, and we look forward to doing it all again.
“We are thrilled to welcome Vantage Controls back again and deeply value their continued participation and support,” added Starkey. “We are also happy to welcome Aprilaire…to TRIO as [a] first-time Sponsor.”
Lutron and Middle Atlantic representatives will be available for face-to-face meetings at the event, and dealers will be able to attend high-level training courses that highlight how the vendors’ products can integrate with Elan products. Vantage will conduct a training course and demonstrate the integration of its products with Elan’s. Aprilaire and Gefen will also demonstrate their products and Elan integration capabilities.
“We at Lutron always value and look forward to TRIO,” said Jeff Zemanek, Lutron’s director of residential systems accounts. “ t is a powerful thing to be part of. Elan is a wonderful host, and our participation has always been productive due to the high energy, low pressure environment.”
