On Friday, September 23, Almo Professional A/V is bringing its E4 AV Tour to Boston, Mass. for an action-packed day of InfoComm CTS-accredited courses, hands-on workshops and an expansive array of exciting new product demonstrations.
“E4 Boston will include the most new products we’ve ever shown in our exhibit hall at one time,” said Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “E4 Boston attendees have a great advantage as so many of our exhibitors are specifically using this event to unveil, test and sneak peek their latest and greatest AV gear. Boston area resellers and integrators are strongly encouraged to make time for this E4. A firsthand look at these products and the time spent talking with the manufacturers and Almo’s Business Development Managers about them will be invaluable and can definitely give them an edge over their competitors.”
