Wrap Up for Great Lakes Summit and SoCal / Pacific Northwest Events!
Great Lakes Technology & Business Summit
The Great Lakes Technology Summit held in Lansing, Michigan last month was a special show for Monitor Audio. In addition to manufacturer displays in the main hall with other vendors, Monitor Audio was able to secure a demo room for the Michigan launch of the new Platinum PL300 II loudspeakers!
This well attended event attracts dealers from all over the state to see the latest in cutting edge products for our CI industry. Over 50 vendors set up displays and some 300 dealers attended. The Monitor Audio PL300 II demo room was the hit of the show.
All of the feedback from dealers was very positive and included comments like
"We need to try and do more higher end box business"
"This is what it's supposed to sound like."
SoCal & Pacific Northwest Events
The Southern California Technology and Business Summit was held on May 3, 2016 in Westlake Village, CA and also held on May 5, 2016 in Irvine, CA. Then shortly after, the Pacific NorthWest Consumer Electronics Expo was held on May 17, 2016 in Seattle, WA.
We attended both shows with Monitor Audio, with each event being attended by a few hundred integrators and retailers.
One of the main draws from Monitor Audio was the new luxury in-wall Controlled Performance model, the CP IW460 X ($2200 ea). This 5-driver, luxury in-wall speaker was a big hit at each show! There is a lot of interest in luxury in-walls the CP IW 460 X may be the best available on the market today, second only to the new Platinum In Wall II ($4995 ea.)
Also popular was the CT265IDC Dolby Atmos-ready in ceiling model.
Seattle visitors were also given the opportunity to hear a live "Good, Better, Best" audition of Bronze, Silver and Gold bookshelf models at their showroom or office, which many took with great interest.
