D&H Distributing told us today that they will conduct their New England 2013 Technology Show on August 6 at the Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel, Quincy, MA. The distributor said they will expect close to 500 attendees and more than 60 participating vendors for this event. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m., with seminars initiating at 12:00 p.m. The exhibit floor opens at 3:00 p.m.The event will feature six seminar presentations from Cisco, Cloud Nation, HP, Intel, Lenovo and Microsoft, on topics including how to start a cloud solutions practice, next-generation mobile computing, Windows 8, touch-based technologies, servers, security and more. Additional exhibitors include Acer, ASUS, Kensington, Linksys, Logitech, NETGEAR, Philips, Samsung, Toshiba, and Western Digital to name a few; plus a roster of accessories, peripherals and components from emerging and established brands.
Vendors making an inaugural visit to the show include CODi (notebooks, cases, bags), NTT Advanced Technology Corp. (mobile telecomm), Ooma (VoIP), QNAP (storage), and Synology America Corp. (storage).
The Microsoft booth at the show will spotlight the latest Windows 8 touch-enabled devices, displayed as they would be utilized in a variety of real life settings (e.g., a coffee shop, an airport, a home office). The exhibit will help resellers experience how the touch-enabled, cloud-empowered, multi-app Windows 8 interface shapes the user experience under various circumstances, to help inform the VAR’s sales strategies.
Resellers can also learn more about D&H’s Partner Services marketing resources at the show. Attendees who have their picture taken with the Partner Services mascot will have those photos uploaded via a designated D&H Twitter hashtag, and can enter an additional prize drawing.
D&H will also have lots of goodies and giveaways and special pricing for items ordered on the show floor. Also, one winner per seminar will receive a Case Logic 30-inch XN Urban Rolling Duffel; and one Grand Prize winner will receive a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad with Retina Display plus an accessory bundle, sponsored by Logitech.
