MARIETTA, GA (04.10.2013) – AVR’s Spring Open House, held April 1st and April 2nd, drew attendance that topped 120 to the company’s Marietta facility. Dealers from the Atlanta Metro area, along with Montgomery, Auburn and Chattanooga, filled each session.
“Over all the event worked out very well. We had a 2013 Mustang on site with the brand new aftermarket installation kit, Kenwood DNX head unit and the Maestro RR system installed for hands-on dealer demonstrations. Mark Rutledge, from ADS, traveled from Montreal to conduct demonstrations and field questions on this revolutionary new product that will open the door to new aftermarket installation possibilities. Both presenters did an outstanding job” AVR’s Joe Hanson commented to 12voltnews.com.
Kenwood’s Matt Yerger provided key selling features across the 2013 product lineup. Kenwood Eastern Regional Manager Ed Meenan was also on hand for the AVR Open House.
“Kenwood’s new DNN ‘internet connected’ technology is the future for any dealer selling in the aftermarket and wanting to get their customers ‘connected’ safely a mobile environment. Dealers who do not take the time to learn and embrace all the new technologies are putting themselves behind their competition. The days of making a living installing a head unit and four speakers, to just listen to music, are a thing of the past. The well educated dealers, who are totally up to speed on the latest internet technology and integration, are the ones who will survive and prosper in the long run. True professional training, like that offered by Kenwood and ADS at the AVR Open House, is one of the most important things 12volt retailers can do to remain successful” Hanson concluded.
“It was great to spend a couple days with dealers at the AVR show. We spent most of our time training on the features of Maestro SW and RR as well as the new Kenwood DNN radios. It was a real pleasure and ADS thanks the folks at AVR for the opportunity to join the event,” Mark Rutledge related to 12voltnews.com
Food from Williamson BBQ was enjoyed both days.
Following the open house the show went on the road for training sessions at Roger’s Stereo in Greenville, SC and Freeman’s Car Stereo in Charlotte, NC.
