The PowerHouse Alliance Pre-CES Reception
PowerHouse Alliance executive director Dennis Holzer held the distributor group’s annual pre-CES member meeting and dinner Monday night at the DB’s Pool & Pong Restaurant in the Miracle Mile Shops complex on the Vegas strip.
Holzer reported that his group, consisting of 13 members, had experienced business increases in 2013 of anywhere from five to 19 percent, and that total warehouses in service for the group would soon grow to 41 from 28.
Holzer said that categories that had performed exceptionally well for the group included security, added two years ago, which he said has “gone through the roof” in growth. “We also added light commercial in July to our product roster, and it’s done well, so we are expanding the category,” said Holzer, adding that the Alliance would take a booth for the first time this year at the June InfoComm Show, in line with this strategy.
At this CES, the Alliance has a 50-foot-by-50-foot booth in the Convention Center’s South Hall.
