Almo Professional A/V Announces Chicago and California E4 AV Tour Spring Events


Almo Professional A/V is giving resellers, integrators and consultants the opportunity to charge up their businesses by attending the award-winning E4 AV Tour, coming to Chicago on March 26 and Southern California on April 21. The spring tour will include exclusive access to new products and services that electrify installation projects, powerful networking opportunities, and refreshing technical and business sessions, including the highly anticipated addition of an HDBaseT Installer Expert Program.

“Our theme for the spring events is ‘Fully Charged’ because we are focusing on giving our attendees the business fuel they need to stay plugged-in and energized in 2015,” explained Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “Our E4 — education, expo, explore and exchange — formula works. The high-energy environment is designed to leave our partners fully charged as they become stronger, smarter and more efficient with the way they go about business this year.”

Craigmyle noted, “One of the most exciting additions to our spring tour is the technical HDBaseT Installer Expert Program, which is for attendees who would like to learn more about HDBaseT technology, regardless of whether they are beginner or expert installers. At the conclusion of the course, participants receive an HDBaseT Expert Certificate as well as InfoComm Renewal Units.”

Both E4 events include a keynote address delivered by Gary Kayye of rAVe Publications with new information about “Being Smart About Smart Buildings,” focusing on the explosive practice of pre-engineering AV into every room in new construction and how to become a preferred provider to the architect and facility manager community.
