GASTONIA, NC (03.21.2014) – Shiflet Dickson’s 2014 Car Expo and Dealer show marked the company’s 25th annual event. March 16th and 17th, Sunday and Monday, were the dates of this special event.
“Marking the 25th anniversary of our dealer shows was a milestone,” David Holland commented to 12voltnews.com. Continuing, Holland offered, “Our dealers really turned out for this year’s show. Many don’t travel to major trade shows and this was an opportunity for them to see the latest products from a substantial number of vendors, talk with factory staff and reps plus pick up some great show deals and they did. We shipped show orders for two days after the event.”
The Sunday and Monday show days are unique but work very well for Shiflet Dickson.
“Our vendor support was so strong this year. Jacob Harbin made the trip in from the West Coast to cover the JVC line. Robin McNeal did a great job with PowerBass and that line is on fire. The CRUX line is really taking hold with dealers and the CRUX Express with Mike Beyersdoerfer made a strong statement. Kicker’s Randy David was in the house an Ronnie Brashear from the SoundStream security side – along with Chuck Kinney and Power Acoustik. Jason Hannon came in to show the latest from Planet Audio,” Holland stated. Rydeen, RaceSport and Metra also had a very good presence at the event.
“The Shiftlet and Dickson show was a big success. Great dealer turn out, lots of new products, and great deals made for a very successful weekend. The Kicker Golf Cart was outfitted with the Kicker Power Sports products featuring the new 4″ speaker enclosures,” commented Kicker’s Randy Davis.
Dealers have until the end of the month to place final show orders and qualify or a chance to win special prizes.
“The mood of dealers attending our event was very upbeat. This year we saw new accounts from the territory and that’s always a very good sign,” Holland concluded.
A Saturday golf outing preceded the 2-day event.
