AVAD Sets Dates for Next Stops on 2010 AVAD Vend-O-Palooza Tour

AVAD LLC, America’s leading distributor of custom electronics, has announced the dates and locations for the next wave of its 2010 Vend-O-Palooza Tour. Following the rising popularity of the events held thus far in 2010, the next leg of the Vend-O-Palooza tour will hit AVAD branches in Georgia, Tennessee, New Jersey, Maryland, Colorado and Utah throughout April, May and June. AVAD’s 2010 Vend-O-Palooza Tour has been its largest, most successful to-date, featuring at least 45 of the industry’s leading residential AV, commercial AV and security vendors at each event.

Vend-O-Palooza is a one-day trade show offering area dealers an exclusive opportunity to meet directly with leading manufacturers in an interactive forum at local AVAD branches throughout the US and Canada. Each event provides attendees with the opportunity to demo the latest products from leading manufacturers, participate in prize giveaways and raffles, and purchase products at special pricing. AVAD also conducts special workshops and training sessions at each event, including in-depth business management courses designed to help dealers successfully grow their businesses.

“We have seen an incredible turnout for the first part of this year’s Vend-O-Palooza Tour and we look forward to its continued success,? said Jim Annes, vice president and general manager of AVAD. “Vend-O-Palooza has grown to be an extremely popular event for both dealers and AVAD vendors alike. Dealers have a unique opportunity to spend valuable one-on-one time with the manufacturers of the products they use. The manufacturers have benefited from being able to speak directly with the dealers who are using their product, gaining valuable insight into how to make the products and services they offer more beneficial to the dealer and end-user.?

AVAD’s 2010 Vend-O-Palooza Tour will hit the following locations beginning in April:

April 8 – Symrna, Ga.
April 22 – Nashville, Tenn.
May 6 – Pine Brook, N.J.
May 20 – Gaithersburg, Md.
June 10 – Centennial, Colo.
June 24 – Salt Lake City, Utah

AVAD plans on at least 20 Vend-O-Palooza tour dates throughout 2010 and will announce more locations in the near future.
