LUTZ, FL - May 2, 2008: Perpetual Marketing Associates/PGW Distribution (PMA/PGW), a leading Florida specialty sales representative & distribution company, announced today it has scheduled new sessions of its popular TLC -IV dealer education program for May 14 & 15 at its facility in Lutz, FL (outside of Tampa). The theme for these new sessions is "Acoustics - Getting the Best Sound Out of Your Room" and will feature a keynote presentation by acoustics expert Mr. Terry Hill of PMI, Ltd.

PMA/PGW's TLC dealer education events (TLC stands for Travel, Learn and Communicate) feature limited seating, multiple hands -on education sessions providing a more personalized learning experience for attendees. Sessions are structured around industry subject -experts who provide detailed and valuable information during the day and also participate with attendees in after -hours fun events offering an opportunity to build lasting relationships.

The keynote speaker for these sessions is Mr. Terry Hill, General Manager of Performance Media Industries (PMI), a company that specializes in consulting with installers and integrators on acoustical issues in system design. PMI was founded by Tony Grimani, a well known industry personality and former executive at Dolby Laboratories and LucasFilm THX.

In a session titled "Acoustics - Getting the Best Sound Out of Your Room," Hill will address issues including: the science of acoustics, how to properly plan for the effects of acoustics, and practical solutions to common acoustical issues.
