NASHVILLE, TN (04.22.2016) – P&E Distributors is known for holding one of the premier distributor shows on the annual distributor show circuit. This year P&E upped their game. THE SHOW 2016 was held in a new location – the Embassy Suites Nashville SE-Murfreesboro.
P&E’s Josh Eatherly relayed to 12voltnews.com, “This was by far our best show ever. We had 139 vendors on hand and14 factory show vehicles including 12 volt Kicker, JVC, Alpine, and Cerwin Vega. The show started at 9am, and in the past couple years it had been slow to start, but by 10AM we already 100 dealers through the doors.”
The Embassy Suites facility was an ideal layout with huge ballrooms for the show and lunch.
Continuing, Eatherly commented, “The show was packed at all times, that is until lunch was served and many folks enjoyed a great lunch. After lunch the dealers really started taking advantage of the 1-day deals and preliminary totals showed that we shattered previous show sales numbers. There was a line at the order booth with dealers eager to get more tickets for the drawings. They were really eager to see our Premier Vendors who stepped up this year. 12volt Premier vendors were Audio Enhancers, BOYO, DEI, JVC, Kicker, Massive Audio, Metra, PAC, Planet Audio, Polk Audio, Racesport and Soundstream.”
Drawings and raffle prizes are always an added highlight at The Show.
Eatherly added, “We gave away $5,000 in cash, two 50” smart tvs, a couple iPads, and a ton of door prizes. It was so much better this year having the whole weekend onsite and in one place. The Embassy Suites really took care of us.” There were two drawings for $2500. The winners were MOSOUNDZ from Jackson, TN and 1 Stop Automotive from Crossville, TN.
