AVAD Announces First Leg of 2010 Vend-O-Palooza Tour

AVAD LLC, America’s leading distributor of custom electronics, has announced the dates for the first leg of its 2010 Vend-O-Palooza tour. The early tour dates for 2010 feature six events held at local AVAD branches throughout Arizona, California and Florida. Building on the success of the events held in 2009, the Vend-O-Palooza tour will be AVAD’s largest to-date, featuring at least 45 of the industry’s leading vendors at each of the events scheduled for 2010.

Held at local AVAD branches throughout the US and Canada, Vend-O-Palooza is a one-day event offering area dealers the opportunity to meet directly with representatives from leading manufacturers in an interactive forum. At each event, attendees can demo the latest products, participate in raffles and giveaways, and purchase products at special pricing.

AVAD also presents workshops and training sessions at each Vend-O-Palooza, reinforcing the distributor’s commitment to providing dealers with the service, support and training programs to allow them to successfully manage and grow their businesses.

“Vend-O-Palooza had grown to be highly beneficial for both AVAD dealers and manufacturers and we look forward to making this year’s tour our most successful,? said Jim Annes, vice president and general manager of AVAD. “Unlike any other event, Vend-O-Palooza gives dealers an opportunity to meet directly with the manufacturers of the products they depend on. They can come to the event, ask specific questions, demo products and gain a better understanding of how each manufacturer can serve their unique needs. At the same time, manufactures benefit from meeting face-to-face with dealers, which helps them evaluate how to better address those needs.?

The early 2010 Vend-O-Palooza schedule will feature events at the following AVAD Branches:

January 14 – San Diego, Calif.
January 28 – Scottsdale, Ariz.
February 11 – Irvine, Calif.
February 25 – Tampa, Fla.
March 11 – Van Nuys, Calif.
March 25 – Livermore, Calif.

With at least 20 events planned for 2010, AVAD will announce more Vend-O-Palooza tour dates in the near future.
