Almo Professional A/V’s E4 AV Tour Heads for Chicago

Philadelphia, PA — March 2, 2010 — With two successful events already completed, Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing audiovisual distributor, is bringing its traveling E4 AV Tour to Chicago on April 7. Registration is open and will include a line up of new and refined courses that offer its partners complementary InfoComm CTS renewal units and other valuable information to help them stay profitable and thrive in 2010.

The E4 AV tour, which debuted last December in New York City and stopped last month in Anaheim, Calif., is a full-day program that allows partners to earn valuable InfoComm International CTS Renewal Units (RUs) while networking with the industry’s top manufacturers. The E4 AV event can also be accessed on demand during and after each event for instructor videos, copies of the course presentations, video product reviews and live Twitter updates.

“Our Anaheim event brought together more than 250 partners, many of whom left with CTS renewal units in hand,? said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V. “Attendee feedback continues to be extremely positive and a critical way for us to strengthen our show agenda. Our goal is to make the E4 event an educational and worthwhile professional experience for everyone involved.?

“The E4 event proved to be one of the most influential events for me to continue seeking education,? according to Edwin Santos of ATK Services. “I really was not expecting this event to make such a huge impact on my professional life, but it did.?

“E4 provides an excellent way to keep you updated on the new products and interact with manufacturer reps on a one-on-one basis,? said Doug Wilson of House of Sound and Video. “The sessions gave me insight on the new trends, and the venue was well-planned.?
Video comments from participating vendors, presenters and attendees also can be viewed here.
