Annual Dealer Education and Technology Showcase

Class Line -Up Included Technical and Business Education

ST. PAUL, Minn., May 14, 2008 -More than 450 system integrators and electronic system contractors from the U.S. and Canada attended Capitol Sales Company's 13th annual Dealer Education and Technology Showcase in Minneapolis held May 5 and 6. Participants selected from a full offering of technical classes focused on real -life applications along with business classes designed to help dealers drive even more successful growth strategies.

Paul LeMay attended the conference and is the Regional Sales Manager for Panamax - Furman. Lemay talked to dealers throughout the showcase and said, "I met a dealer who flies in from Los Angeles. Attending for last three years in a row, he told me this event is as good as CEDIA EXPO."

The evening of May 5 featured a Technology Showcase where attendees "rocked out" at the popular networking event. JBL, Harman Kardon and Infinity featured the hottest segment in consumer electronics -video game consoles. Dealers had the chance to test drive a full setup of the Rock Band video game with up to four "band mates" on a fully -lit stage complete with a PA system, large screen TVs, projector and surround systems.

Throughout the evening, attendees networked with over 70 product manufacturers at the tradeshow -style event to learn about the latest in technology. In addition to live product demos inside, participants toured the Panasonic Living in HD semi -trailer, Atlas Sound Commercial Sound truck and MTX home audio truck located outside the hotel.

Leslie Richardson, President of Loys Custom Audio/Video attended the show from Indiana. Like many participants, Richardson was not a first -time attendee to the popular seminar. "I just returned from your annual dealer training. The education classes are always great, but this year they were the best! Everything was done with such class. Capital Sales is a company that others should try to emulate, from your web site and customer reps to the dealer training."

One of the product manufacturers thanked the Capitol sales staff for "putting on such a wonderful event" and said, "Over the years, I have attended many such gatherings, but this was by far and away the best organized, attended, and beneficial event that I have participated in."
