Savant Opens Dealer Conference in NYC
Savant Systems kicked off its two-day annual Dealer Conference Wednesday night in New York City, hosting a reception for its dealers at the SoHo-area venue 101 Riverviews.
Company president Jim Carroll welcomed 240 attendees to the location, which offers panoramic views of Manhattan, noting that attendance at the event had more than doubled over last year, with 40 percent of the dealers there attending for a second year in a row.
Conference highlights are set to include technical seminars on Savant products, opportunities for interaction with representatives from Savant tech partner Apple, and tours of the company’s Residential Experience Center and its newly opened Commercial Experience Center.
“Our business is going through a rapid growth change. In 2009, we grew over 300 percent,” he noted in his welcoming remarks, saying the biggest challenge for 2010 would be in forecasting. He urged dealers to provide Savant with feedback during the event to help the company set its technology and business directions for the future.
