MARIETTA, GA (03.20.12)– March 12th and 13th, Monday and Tuesday respectively, were the dates of the 2012 Kenwood product training sessions hosted by AVR and AVR Distributing. Once again the Dave and Busters location in Marietta was the site of this key event.

“Matt Yerger presented the 2012 Kenwood product lineup to our dealers. Kenwood’s 2012 line is exceptionally strong and Matt  covered features and showed our dealers how to relate those features as benefits for consumers looking to add aftermarket enjoyment, safety and convenience to their rides” Joe Hanson related to

A dinner buffet and refreshments were served from 6PM until 7:15 both evenings. The product training sessions began at 7:15 and concluded just after 9PM.

Both nights of the Kenwood Training were packed at the Dave & Busters.

In a follow-up phone conversation Yerger conveyed to, “Dealers in the audience were definitely there to learn about Kenwood’s 2012 product line. Feedback from dealers about this year’s line was so positive. We got a lot of questions about the iDataLink interface, Pandora controls and the Garmin app for the Kenwood entry level navigation units.”

“As in past years we had excellent participation from our dealers who are truly committed to growing their respective businesses. Attendance on Monday night was right at 40 – with nearly 60 individuals on Tuesday night. The time of making a quick buck selling car audio is long gone. The professional, well trained and intelligent 12volt retailers in our territory are doing well. These dealer training meetings are an important part of our efforts at AVR to make the Kenwood brand number one with our dealers” Hanson concluded.
