KA Marketing Celebrates Success of Product Line Expo

Expo Brings Together KA Marketing's Dealers and Manufacturers for Education, Training and More

Dallas, TX - March 24, 2006 - KA Marketing, a leading manufacturer's representative servicing Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, today thanked the participants of its recent Product Line Expo held on March 2, 2006. The representative firm hosted this successful event at the United Leather facility, bringing manufacturers and dealers together in a very relaxed atmosphere. The Expo featured presentations, product demos, and acoustic design seminars. One hundred installers from KA Marketing's growing dealer base were in attendance.

"The success of our product line expo illustrates the importance of bringing dealers and manufacturers together, outside of the hectic tradeshow schedule," said Andrew Ard, President of KA Marketing. "This event allows our manufacturers to spend quality time with our local dealers and understand what they're 'dealing' with in terms of their product offerings. I am pleased to see that this gathering brought in attendees from the farthest reaches of our territory, such as Louisiana and Oklahoma."
The KA Marketing Product Line Expo showcased four separate rooms for one -on -one manufacturer demos, presentations on business services represented by KA Marketing, and a main showroom where table top presentations and discussions were held throughout the day. Manufacturers had designated time slots to feature their products and answer dealer questions. A representative from each of KA Marketing's lines including Athena Technologies, APC AV, Vidikron, Da -Lite, Runco, Triad, AudioControl, Russound, T+A, Mirage, Tivoli Audio, Energy Speaker Systems, WireWorld, and Niveus Media was on -hand at the event to share times with their dealers. In addition, seminars on multi -channel and hi -res music downloads were offered at the MusicGiants Airstream demo trailer which was also on -site. Individual plant tours of the United Leather factory were also given upon request.
According to Robert Cothran of Sound Ideas, a dealer in Ft. Worth, TX, the Expo was a huge success. "As a CI company with little or no showroom space, Expos like this afford us the opportunity to sample a wide variety of products. This was an excellent show. It was very informative."
"Its like a personal CEDIA show that provides you quality face time with key manufacturers without a schedule to stick to," stated Richard Huesi of Architectural Entertainment and Audio Concepts of Houston, Texas. He added, "We spent over 20 minutes one -on -one with Jim Burns from Runco and learned so much more than at any other show or training event."

This event could not have been done without the support and participation of the manufacturers, dealers and service firms. KA Marketing would like to thank all who participated and attended the Expo. Plans are already in the works for an even bigger and more exciting Expo next year.
