BIRMINGHAM, AL (02.26.2016) – The 2016 Angel Dealer Appreciation Show drew record attendance. The activities began with a Saturday night party at the LaFiesta Restaurant in Birmingham on Saturday evening, February 20th. The main event filled the Angel facility on Sunday the 21st.
Charlie Angel related to 12voltnews.com, “Turnout for the dinner and show was terrific – best ever. We had 76 for dinner and over 150 dealers were in the house for Sunday’s show.”
Lighting is a very hot category and dealers checked out the latest from RaceSport and Heise from Metra. M.C, Marketing was on site representing RaceSport. Rep Firm principal Michael Colundjia stated, “It was a very well attended event. John Howell and I were on site and fielded so many questions about lighting.”
Howell commented, “The Angel show turnout was GREAT. Henry Jasper came down from Racesport where we had a chance to see Angel’s old customers and help new customers with new products. With LED Lighting as a new SKU in many 12volt shops, Race Sport is the go to line. RaceSport carries a an extensive lineup of SKU’s, over 4000. Racesport also has a great Display program and we were able to make a lot of dealers happy with a display with their order. IF IT’S LED… THINK RACESPORT.”
Tom Comenole was onsite with the Metra brands – including Heise lighting. He commented, “We had display boards from the CES booth and the Heise Lighting lit up our booth area. The dealer turnout was terrific and interest was strong for all brands we had at the event.” At the show, Comenole received the Angel Vendor Rep of the Year Award.
“The new Q Power Heavy Duty boxes and QBOMBS were hot sellers. Angel brought in extra pallets of these products for the show and I think most of the order was sold during the event,” Matt Bund commented for Q Power.
Brad Fair, PowerBass, travelled from LA to attend the Angel show. Fair offered, “Charlie’s show was great for PowerBass. A lot of dealers and excitement with plenty of specials, giveaways and orders!”
In addition to the aforementioned brands, Rostra, Orca Coolers, SolarGard, JVC, PAC, Audiovox, Kicker, Rosen, Brandmotion, Accele and WeatherTech were on the show floor.
Concluding, Angel stated, “We want to thank all of our vendors who made our show possible. Traffic was very steady throughout the day and we stayed late to get all the orders pulled for dealers to take back to their shops. A big thanks to our staff also who worked to make the event such a success.”
