Named Commercial Integrator BEST for E4 Distributor Training Program; Earned Best Distributor by rAVe Readers During InfoComm 2014
PHILADELPHIA — In conjunction with its five-year anniversary milestone, Almo Professional A/V was recently honored with two distinct industry awards. Almo’s E4 AV Tour was named a 2014 Commercial Integrator BEST in the category of “Training, Consulting & Publications/Business Services.” At the same time, more than 70,000 rAVe Publications readers voted and selected Almo Pro A/V for the “Favorite Distributor” award. Both awards were presented to Almo on the show floor during InfoComm 2014.
“When Almo Pro A/V was formed, one of the ways we sought to differentiate was to provide training and education so our partners were equipped not just with the best products, but also the knowledge and skills necessary to make their businesses successful,” said Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “Our traveling E4 AV networking and training tour is our cornerstone program, stopping in four major cities per year. It continues to grow with new vendor partners, exciting learning opportunities and new business ideas.” Craigmyle added, “Both of these awards validate the combined efforts of our sales, business development, marketing, service and content creation teams. Through their passion and coordination to support our resellers every step of the way, we are successfully changing the role of distribution.”
"Several of the Commercial Integrator BEST judges have had the opportunity to see Almo Pro AV's E4 event in action and are impressed,” said Commercial Integrator and Tech Decisions editor Tom LeBlanc. “We are very confident about this winner in the 'Best Training' category."
According to LeBlanc, this year's winning entries were chosen by a panel of accomplished integrators along with the editors of Commercial Integrator to join an exclusive group of products deemed most noteworthy. Judging criteria for the 2014 Commercial Integrator BEST Awards included innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer.
Gary Kayye, founder of rAVe Publications said, “We are proud of the way we do these awards because they are selected only by our readers. And they chose Almo hands down as their favorite AV distributor.”
