The Industry's First Virtual Training & EXPO
Will this be your first CEDIA EXPO checking your Twitter account and racing back to your room to post an update to your Facebook page? The rise of social networking has changed the landscape of traditional trade shows forever.
The idea of a trade show is to bring the industry together under one big tent to create a buzz; to share, learn, network and prosper and take away a sense of community. What if I told you that the experience of education, product demos and training are available without the blisters, sore feet or the loss of your luggage?
The Consumer Technology Publishing Group, publishers of CustomRetailer, have joined forces with D-Tools to produce the industry's first Virtual Training and EXPO on December 1-3, 2009. Adam Stone, President and CEO of D-Tools, calls D-Tools University (DTU) the most important customer event of the year; and this new platform of education, product training and social networking is a new blueprint for industry events moving forward. The three-day annual Virtual event will kick off with a keynote address from Utz Baldwin, CEO of CEDIA. DTU attendees can register by going to www.customretailer.net/links/dtu.
The most innovative brands in the CE industry, including manufacturers, distributors and buying groups are welcome to exhibit through virtual 3-D "booths" with sponsorship packages designed to reach this targeted group of D-Tools customers. The available sponsorship packages, ranging from Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Exhibitor, are loaded with measurable ROI:
• All registration information provided for the entire live event and the 90-day archive period
• Keynote Webinar presentations to the entire student body
• Networking Lounge sponsorships
• Resource Center sponsorships
• Full customer support, including the building of the virtual trade show "booth"
• Live product demos at the virtual "booths" and live chats with students by your trade show team
