Tablets Are the Focus at New Age Dealer Summit
New Age Electronics and Jack of All Games, the two CE distributors that are part of Synnex, held their first-ever dealer summit last week at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. The event featured discussion of various present industry trends, but the tablet market dominated the discussion like no other topic.
The summit was attended by around 60 dealers and 25 vendors, New Age said.
"We felt that it's a really good time to reach out to our retail partners, look at the industry, and say, 'what can we do to kind of help out,' and bring together some of our top vendors and some of the new technology that we think will be hot for this holiday season," New Age president Fred Towns said in an interview.
