D&H Distributing today announced the agenda and location of its annual Mid-Atlantic Fall 2014 Technology Show, taking place November 5, 2014. This event, the last in D&H’s event season, will be held in the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, PA and D&H is expecting to host over 100 vendors and over 1000 attendees, including resellers, dealers and integrators.
The main focus at this year’s Mid-Atlantic Fall 2014 show is the Server Refresh Opportunity Booth, a 40x40ft area in the center of the exhibit hall, where attendees can see several racks of running, live servers from Lenovo, HP and Cisco, and pick the brains of well-respected D&H Solutions Lab and Server Specialist Team members. The idea behind this display is to both familiarize resellers with the Microsoft Server 2012 R2 solution, as well as new offerings, like the System X line from Lenovo.
“This opportunity stands to increase business for our resellers at a robust pace, even more so than the XP end-of-service issue has, and is still doing. We hope to prepare our customers on how to prosper from this trend, in addition to presenting state-of-the art solutions in areas like mobility, wireless technologies, business communications, wearables and more,” said Mary Campbell, Vice President of Marketing at D&H.
