Brian Sandberg, PSM/R&D, related “Our Salt Lake City Rock the House event on Tuesday May 10th was a very busy day, There were lots of happy dealers taking advantage of all the specials and checking out the many products and brands we had in the showroom. Dealers were definitely happy to be at an in-person event and network with factory staff members on site plus fellow retailers across the area.”

Brandon Kuronya, SLC Branch Manager, stated “Darren Pratley, Garrett Cobbs and I really enjoyed seeing friends and dealers from across the territory. Kyle Bluemel, with Sound Source, drove down 3 hours from Idaho and took a stack of specials back to his store in Chubbuck. We also had over a dozen factory staff and reps in the house to spend time with at our event.”

Going forward he staffs are ready at each location, reps are ready and the deals at each location are set, and as always, will be unbeatable. The R&D events are a must attend for any dealer looking to learn, buy product or just to stop by and visit the facilities.
