MERA announced Thursday that it is offering a special "Black Card" for its members, granting them show-only specials at the KnowledgeFest event, which begins Sunday in Dallas. The cards were mailed out before the show, although members can also pick them up at the registration booth.
The card entitles members to discounts and other benefits from a variety of vendors, including AAMP of America, AudioControl, Audiovox, DICE Electronics, InstallerNet, Parrot and many more. The card also grants members access to a special lounge during the show, as well as VIP guest status at the show's Monday Night Football party.
"We want MERA members to know that, beyond the seminars and networking opportunities, there are real benefits to membership," MERA president Chris Cook said as part of the announcement. "We plan to introduce additional benefits for Black Card holders as we bring more services online and create more partnerships with suppliers and service providers."
