September 17, 2008 — HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK — Concentrating on the profitable digital signage market while continuing the enthusiasm generated by CEDIA EXPO earlier this month, Electrograph Systems, Inc., the leading national distributor of display technology products and services, is setting up camp in the Washington, D.C. area for its next Display Technology Experience (DTE) complimentary reseller event. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, October 21 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, where local area resellers can expect a day of intense training, exclusive product certification opportunities and the addition of manufacturer demo theaters for new product viewings.
