Minneapolis, MN. USA (MAY 2012) - www.chiefmfg.com - an industry leader in mounts, racks and interactive solutions, is hitting the road to participate at the Almo Professional A/V E4 Tour, a training and networking event in Washington, D.C., on May 18.
Attendees will have the chance to see the Chief Road Show, part of the company’s continuous efforts to serve customers and help them improve their business. Chief’s big yellow truck is on a journey across the nation to bring the latest product offerings and service solutions to AV partners this summer. On the road are the new Interactive Accessories, Thinstall® Swing Arms, Raxxess Series AV Rack Systems, Short Throw Projector Mounts and Fusion Flat Panel Mounting Solutions. Da-Lite® Projection Screens will also make an appearance at many of the stops.
In addition to the products and service solutions, the Road Show team will be sponsoring a hot dog eating contest at E4 AV. In this dealers-only event, contestants will take on Road Show Crew members Mike Moon and Scott Rohe as well as other dealers starting at 12:30 p.m. The winner will receive $20 per hot dog eaten, with the chance to raise that to $21 per hot dog if eaten with Chief yellow mustard. A sign up form is available here.
"Events like E4 AV are what the Chief Road Show is all about," said Laurie Englert, Chief's Vice President of Marketing. "Bringing our latest product solutions to the customer’s doorstep has been a success, and being able to share that at E4 will be a blast!"
