SEATTLE, WA (11.13.2013) – The Pacific Northwest Consumer Electronics Expo recently announced a second annual event! Please mark your calendars for the week of April 7th – April 11th 2014!

2013 marked the inaugural expo and, after receiving great feedback from dealers and manufacturers, organizers are looking0 forward to hosting another successful event!

“The move to an earlier date for the 2014 Expo was a result of a lot of feedback from the dealers and vendors who attended our June 2013 venues.  All agreed that April was the perfect month to host this event in terms of its timing relative to CEDIA, InfoComm, MERA, SEMA, and CES,” Mark Giovanetti, President of Pacific Rim NW Marketing stated to

Venues in both Seattle and Portland have been moved to accommodate the need for a larger space. In Seattle, the expo will continue to be centrally located at Seatac airport. The Portland expo has been moved to Tigard and is just off the I-5 interchange. This move was to reduce commute times for most dealers who want to attend the event, thereby increasing attendance.

“Our plan for 2014 is to build on the success of our inaugurla event earlier in 2013,” Dan McMillan of In Phase Marketing commented to
