Philadelphia, PA — March 28, 2019 — Following a record-breaking attendance day in Chicago earlier this month, Almo Professional A/V, the Pro AV industry’s Favorite Distributor, is bringing its 2019 E4 Experience, a rebranded, expanded version of the award-winning E4 AV Tour, to Southern California on April 5 at the Hilton Orange County in Costa Mesa.

Along with an exhibit hall filled with pre-InfoComm products and a dozen sessions worth AVIXA CTS Renewal Units, the E4 Experience is again offering SDVoE AV-Over-IP Design Certification and Digital Signage Federation Certification – Foundations of Digital Signage. E4 Southern California is also hosting former Major League Baseball Rookie of the Year, MVP and six-time All Star, Jose Canseco for a special autograph session from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

“The E4 Experience Chicago brought nearly 600 attendees to network, learn and get a leg up on the newest products and trends in the industry,” said Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing and communications for Almo Corporation. “About half of our Chicago attendees took advantage of the new E4 Concierge service to help organize their day and maximize their time at the event.”
Craigmyle continued, “The number of participants in the SDVoE and DSF certifications far exceeded our expectations – both were standing-room only, which really shows the value and interest level in these trainings and how they are able to help integrators and resellers expand their knowledge.”

According to Justin Kennington, president of SDVoE, “The SDVoE Certified Partner Training at the E4 Experience in Chicago was really awesome. I’d never been to an E4 and I was impressed by how well organized and attended it was. The fact that we had a packed room for this training — which took place at 7:30 a.m., by the way – speaks volumes about the trust integrators and resellers have in Almo, as well as the fast-growing interest in SDVoE and the transformation of the matrix switch. We are looking forward to continuing this momentum at E4 Southern California.”

About the SDVoE AV-Over-IP Design Certification (1 CTS RU)

SDVoE is transforming the matrix, which means transforming the way we think about system design. Learn about the new design considerations that exist in the SDVoE paradigm, and how this platform benefits integrators and their customers. Those who pass a graded assessment at the end of the course receive the SDVoE Design Partner Certification. Certified attendees are published on the SDVoE website.

About the DSF Certification — Foundations of Digital Signage (1 CTS RU)

This fast-paced, one hour course is designed to detail the exciting and rapidly evolving world of digital signage; from the most basic networks and applications to how to approach interactive kiosks, video walls and other experiential interactive deployments. It’s taught by a DSF (Digital Signage Federation) board member and is not product-specific. Those who pass a short, multiple choice assessment at the end of the course receive a DSF Foundations digital credential.

About the E4 Concierge

Attendees can customize their E4 Experience with the assistance of Almo’s E4 Concierge, Cameron Odom. Cameron will assist with mapping out an entire day by creating a customized schedule of courses that cater to each attendee’s individual interests.
