While the Northern California CI Expo celebrates what should be its largest show yet, I will be in attendance for the first time. Draper joined with Mark Fielder, of Fielder Marketing, too late last year to participate in the event, but it’s been on my radar ever since. Nine local independent manufacturer’s rep firms, Fielder Marketing being one of them, and three distributors in northern California serve as hosts. We are setting up shop on October 13th at the Hilton Oakland Airport Hotel. Draper will be one of over 90 manufacturers on display. There will also be live demonstrations, product training sessions and featured speakers from CE Pro.
Draper is partnering with Barco to show off our TecVision projection surface with their PGWU-62L laser phosphor projector, the quietest of its kind on the market. TecVision is made for those high end, 4K applications, where the color and clarity of your image matter. We will also be showcasing our FlexShade products, a motorized and manual window shade line up that Draper has been perfecting since 1902. We relaunched our shade line at CEDIA a few weeks ago and the interest was overwhelming. The market is screaming for a high quality, affordably priced option with attractive fabric and hardware options. No need to look further than Draper!
While CEDIA seems just like yesterday, we realize that not everyone can make it to a national show. The CI Expo, and other events like it across the country, make all of this product and technology more accessible. If you happen to be in northern California, we hope you take advantage and stop by to see us. Click here to register.
