Almo Professional A/V, North America’s largest professional audio visual distributor with global reach, and its education partner AVIXA, the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, are showcasing dozens of the industry’s newest products later this month on the E4 AV Tour, coming to the Boston Newton Marriott on September 21. Registration has also opened for the final E4 event of the year, taking place in Nashville on October 25 and 26.
Listen to an interview with Melody Craigmyle, Vice President of Marketing & Communications, Almo Corporation about what to expect during the E4 AV Tour in Boston.
Read the first announcement from August 22, 2018 for details on all the sessions, workshops and activities at E4 Boston.
“It’s been two years since the tour last stopped in Boston and local attendees will soon discover how much the E4 program has grown and evolved since then – it’s basically an entirely new experience,” explained Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing & communications, Almo Corporation.
Craigmyle added, “One piece of feedback we always get from E4 attendees is that you can really get one-on-one with top manufacturers and talk about the projects you are working on. E4 is small enough to get that exclusive time but also large enough to have all the newest industry products that perhaps were launched at InfoComm but haven’t begun shipping until now. This exhibit hall is also ideal for those who didn’t make it out to InfoComm in June.”
“We encourage our integrators to bring their end user clients to the exhibit hall portion of the event, which features new products from more than 40 manufacturers, and use it as a local showroom,” noted Craigmyle. “This gives them the ability to show some of the complete AV solutions that are available through Almo.”
