We’ve taken feedback from our customers and put together a full roster of fresh training opportunities focused around some of the latest technologies and emerging trends in video surveillance, networking, intrusion and Z-Wave, residential and commercial A/V, and more. We are also offering business management courses to help dealers run more efficiently, and there will be opportunities for attendees to participate in national, local and industry-accredited courses. The ADI Expos are free to all industry professionals and provide a great forum for dealers to meet one-on-one with manufacturers, network with industry peers, and share best practices. In addition to the ADI Expos, ADI offers an assortment of training opportunities, including branch events, vendor trainings and webinars. All of our branch locations are equipped with dedicated training rooms.
Jonathan Elster, CEO
We plan to have three dealer shows and seven to 10 customers’ trainings in 2015. Our customer shows typically offer more than just a buying opportunity. Dealers that attend our shows expect to be trained on new products and new categories. We want our dealers exposed to new avenues of profit for their specific businesses. We always offer compelling show specials that are available to show attendees. Some of our upcoming trainings are from vendors such as Lutron, LG, Sony, Luxul, RTI, URC and Nest/DropCam.
