Stampede to Tour With Big Book
Distributor Stampede said Tuesday that it will undertake its 2011 Big Book of AV Tour next month, expanding the tour to 14 stops from last year's five.
The tour starts March 16 at the House of Blues in New Orleans, and will visit Miami, Cleveland, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Vancouver in the spring. In the fall, the tour will continue in such cities as Washington, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Montreal, and Toronto.
“Our dealers across North America couldn’t get enough of the Big Book of AV Tour in 2010,” Kevin Kelly, president and COO of Stampede, said as part of the announcement. “So for 2011 the tour is ‘even bigger’ than last year, up from five cities to 14. We will still hold the shows in live-music venues and we will still have tons of valuable information for our dealers. Our goal is to keep the atmosphere fun and energetic to remind everyone how much fun our products deliver to the end users.”
