Philadelphia, PA — September 22, 2010 — Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing audiovisual distributor, today announced that registration is officially open for its next traveling E4 AV Tour, which will take place in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 10. The D.C. tour includes a full line-up of brand-new training courses worth InfoComm International CTS renewal units (RUs) and will kick-off with a special address by Randy Lemke, executive director of InfoComm.
