When InstallerNet closes its proposed acquisition of the Mobile Enhancement Retail Association (MERA), which was announced Wednesday, the organization’s 174 members should begin to see a lot of changes.

The Mobile Enhancement Retailers Association announced this week that its 2009 KnowledgeFest event will take place in Overland Park, Kans. The dates of the event are March 14-16 at the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center, right outside Kansas City.
