AV RoadShow

Our Road Show is Bigger than Your Road Show

The team continues to traverse the Lone Star State with the latest AV solutions from Chief and Da-Lite. They spent the lion’s share of this week in and around Houston. Kathryn Gaskell, Product Manager, was tagging along this week and reports “amazing customer visits, great training and feedback on our products.”

More Minnesota, and Goldie Troubles

The Road Show team finished out last week in Minnesota and headed to Illinois on the way to Missouri. However, Goldie Haulin, the Road Show Truck, decided she didn’t want to leave Illinois.

She got a bad case of diesel particle matter filter issues and got towed to a shop in Springfield on Saturday.

Road Show specialist, Tyrel, picked up a temporary rental truck and moved all the equipment to it on Sunday. This week, the team will be in St. Louis. Once Goldie is fixed, Tyrel will switch back next weekend.

“Lots of moving parts and lots of driving.  Just the way we like it,” said Tyrel.

In the meantime, some pics from the rest of the week in Minnesota, and a few of Goldie getting some attention.

Fridley, Minnesota, the place you wanna go ta

The AV Road Show pulled into Fridley, a northern suburb of Minneapolis, to roll out new solutions for over a dozen electrical and technology providers. Being electrical, they were particularly interested in the in-wall and above ceiling storage solutions on hand.

Minnesota Day 1 Part 1

The nice thing about the Road Show being near Milestone HQ is the opportunity for new people to get a chance to see how the show runs, and lots of pics.

Mostly the pics.

Michigan and Wisconsin Weeks

The Road Show crew was crazy busy the past two weeks to send in many pics, so we waited for a bunch to pile up to post. They headed up Michigan and Wisconsin with about three stops a day.

Michigan included: Ann Arbor, Wixom, Brighton, Farmington Hills, Southfield, Troy, Saginaw, Byron Center, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

Wisconsin included: Germantown, Brookfield, Milwaukee, Appleton and Green Bay.

Next week, the show is in Minnesota, with a stop at Milestone Headquarters mid week.

Da-Lite Day

The Road Show Truck headed north from Kentucky to finish the week at Da-Lite Headquarters in Warsaw, Indiana. There were stops in Shelbyville, Louisville, Hebron and Erlanger in Kentucky; and Indianapolis, Indiana, before getting to Warsaw late Wednesday night.

This is the first time the Road Show has had a stop at Da-Lite, and is turning into a great opportunity for the Da-Lite team to become more familiar with Chief solutions.

Next week we continue on into Michigan! Hope to see you soon.
