The 2007 International CES saw the In Car Experts (ICE) buying group convening both an advisory board meeting as well as a retailer party. On January 7, the group held their Retailer Advisory Board meeting/dinner. The board met with ICE board of directors member and Director of (Australian buying group) Car Audio Master Michael Stephens and discussed the Australian mobile electronics market.
January 9 saw the group throwing its first independent retailer party at the Hard Rock Hotel Pool. Over 350 attended, including the Worldwide Managing Director General Manager of Pioneer Mobile Entertainment Business Group, Akira Haeno. Awards were handed to AAMP of America President Micah Ansley, Pioneer USA President Edward Sachs and JL Audio President Andy Oxenhorn for their respective companies’ vision and commitment to independent mobile electronics specialists.
Said ICE Executive Director Rob Elliot, “ICE is proud to be able to put together such an event where the best vendors can converse with the best retailers in a laid back setting. We will be sure to continue hosting events of this nature.”
