Montreal is the Next Stop on the Stampede Spring 2016 Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series!

After a successful first stop in Salt Lake City, Utah, Stampede’s 2016 Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series continues to Montreal on March 17th for a day of expert keynote speakers and prominent industry manufacturers.

Continuing on with the ProAV industry’s most heavily anticipated annual tour, Stampede, North America’s largest distributor of Pro AV solutions, today announced that the second stop of its Spring 2016 Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series will be in Montreal on March 17th. The tour’s first Canadian stop will take place at the Montreal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Registration is open here.

“Stampede’s 2016 Big Book of AV Tour offers attendees unprecedented insight into every major product category on the market today,” said Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly. “In addition to offering engaging informational keynotes, training sessions and product showcases, we’re now bringing our sales team to address any questions and concerns that attendees may have along the way. Our ultimate goal with this tour is to provide attendees with the information and resources they need to further their success.”

The 2016 Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series offers attendees a first look at the most innovative products on the market, including product showcases in audio, video, display, projection, lighting and staging, digital signage, conferencing, digital content creation, networking, signal distribution, and more.

“Additionally, this year’s tour will build on the industry momentum we generated with Drone Video Systems in 2015,” Kelly said. “Stampede truly made a splash in the ProAV industry with the introduction of drones to our lineup, and this year, we’re going to dive even deeper into how integrators can capitalize on the commercial drone business.”

The first stop kicked off in Salt Lake City, Utah, on March 10th, and according to Kelly, it was a complete hit. “Between the engaging presentations and ample time provided to attendees to network with industry professionals, we set the pace for the remainder of the spring. We are confident that this tour will continue to be a smashing success across North America.”
