AV RoadShow

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.

Road Show, meet Virginia

The AV Road Show spent last week in Virginia with stops in Richmond, Henrico and Virginia Beach. They finished out this stretch with strong shows and earned a good week-long rest this week. We’ll catch up with the team again soon in North Carolina.

Maryland and Virginia week

The Road Show spent the week in Maryland and Virginia, showcasing Da-Lite and Chief’s newest solutions. The team even had time to stop for some ALS ice bucket challenge. Frank Pisano has kicked off the challenge, and for each Chief marketing and sales team member who accepts, Chief is donating $20. You can donate as well here: http://www.alsa.org/donate/

Stops this week included Hunt Valley, Columbia, Lanham, Wheaton, and Gaithersburg, Maryland; and Ashburn, Sterling, Herndon, Chantilly and Alexandria, Virginia.

More stops are planned in Virginia for the next week, then we’ll be off for Labor Day week for a well deserved break for Tyrel, Road Show Specialist.
