Technology & Business Summit Headed to California
The annual Technology & Business Summit is set to take place over two days in Southern California next week. The event is set for May 12 at the Warner Center Marriott in Los Angeles and May 14 at the Irvine Marriott in Orange County.
The event, which will feature over 100 exhibiting companies, will be hosted by rep firms AV Partners, ByDesign Vision & Sound, Calwest Marketing, Chris Dixon Company, JBA Marketing, Morris Tait Associates, Paul Collins Group, ProWest Sales, and Studio Decor.
“The Technology & Business Summit is now in its seventh year and we just held another well attended event in Arizona in April," event cofounder Mark Cichowski said as part of the announcement.
"The model of a joint effort in a one on one environment has proven to be very successful. Even though it is encouraging to see business moving back in the right direction, everyone still wants make effective use of time and resources.”
Frank White, last year's CEDIA Lifetime Achievement Award winner, is "leading the charge" to organize the event.
"I’ve been involved in the Summit for years and it is truly the right formula for our industry," White said. "It is collaborative with reps, manufacturers and dealers all working together to not only talk about products, but to build a better business. It is a concentrated investment of time and a huge amount of value in return.”
The event will also feature five educational seminars:
- Dolby Atmos seminar and demo with special guest Craig Eggers from Dolby Labs. Dealers will learn how to present this new technology to their clients and experience Dolby Atmos demos all day.
- Innovative Business Process. Dealers will be immersed in valuable ways to enhance their business and the process to increase business. Frank White.
