Kelly Marshall, senior marketing manager, discussed Almo E4 AV Tour during InfoComm 2017.

Almo Pro A/V has found something with its E4 AV Tour. The dealer-focused product showcase and educational event has earned a CI BEST Award for Training, Consulting, & Publications/Business Services four years in a row. So the distributor announcing its fall 2017 E4 AV Tour game plan ranks as big news.

The fall 2017 edition of Almo Professional A/V will include events in Teaneck, N.J. on September 19 and Irvine, Calif., on October 3. More information and registration is available on Almo’s E4 AV Tour site.

In a press release announcing the Fall 2017 E4 agenda, Almo says the events offer AV professionals a full day of educational sessions worth InfoComm CTS Renewal Units (RUs) as well as exclusive access to the newest AV products and services.

“The E4 formula is extremely popular with our resellers and integrators because it works — one day to attend a free event in their area, participate in hands-on workshops, learn new trends and business techniques, network, and earn those valuable and necessary CTS RUs before the year is up,” says Melody Craigmyle, VP of marketing, Almo Professional A/V. “With visits to New York and Irvine only once every two years, we are well-prepared to host a record number of attendees this fall.”

Meanwhile, three new exhibitors have joined the tour:

Picking up where it left off with its spring 2017 events, Almo Pro A/V is using its E4 AV Tour to educate integrators on opportunities related to Internet of Things (IoT).
