REDMOND, WA (05.13.2013) – The Pacific NW Consumer Electronics Expo is set for Seattle and Portland, Tuesday, June 11th and Thursday, June 13th respectively. This trade only event is designed to showcase over 80 home and 12volt brands to consumer electronics retailers throughout the Great Northwest. The Seattle event will be held at the DoubleTree Suites/Hilton-Seatle Airport. The Portland event will be held at the Embassy Suites/Hilton Portland Airport. Show hours are from 8AM til 7PM for both events. There will be hosted lunch and cocktail reception starting at 5PM.
The Pacific NW event is the combined effort of 7 home and 12volt rep firms that include Ambassador Marketing, In-Phase Marketing, Big Bear Marketing, N&S Marketing and Sales, Market Share, CMS Services and Pacific Rim NW Marketing.
“A number of us were talking about the need to connect consumer electronics retailers with the newest products in this era of rapidly changing technology. Many retailers in the northwest are not attending major industry trade shows as in past years. The consensus was we need to host an industry show. The Seattle and Portland Pacific NW Expo events are the result” Dan McMillan, In-Phase Marketing, stated to 12voltnews.com.
The task of activities to promote the event landed with Jim Ribail of Ambassador Marketing. “This entire event has come together very quickly. The dates and venues were locked just days ago. The support from both the home and 12volt vendors has mushroomed. The count of exhibitors now stands at 80 and the venue show floors are bursting at the seams” Ribail related to 12voltnews.com.
A quick look at the exhibitor lineup revealed over forty 12volt brands committed to exhibit. JL Audio will host a “School of Sound” session, presented by Steve Turissi, at both venues.
