AMHERST, NEW YORK, May 18, 2018 — Get an in-depth look at innovative new solutions from key vendor partners, attend the InfoComm Opening Reception at the OMNIA Nightclub, earn valuable award points that convert to prizes, win Apple iWatches, and keep track of your progress on a special app downloaded to your phone. Resellers will be able to do all of this, and have the experience of a lifetime, by participating in the Stampede InfoComm 2018 Gold Rush sales promotion program that runs all three days of InfoComm 2018 at Booth C1646 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, according to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly.
To get started, all a reseller has to do is to scan the special QR code on the first day of the show at Booth C1646 or download the app in advance at https://www.scavify.com/download. Once at the site, resellers can type in “Gold Rush” -to start their own individual Gold Rush journey. The first list of Gold Rush stops will be released on June 5th, the day before the show opens.
“The Gold Rush offers resellers the opportunity to embark on an exciting three-day journey that will bring them to sponsoring vendor booths, special show events, the Stampede Mobile Technology Showroom, and more,” Kelly said. “And at every stop on their Gold Rush journey, they will learn about new products and programs, strike “gold” (through significant discounts and exciting show specials), and earn the chance to win some amazing prizes that include special gold Apple watches and a special gold drone!”
A total of 30 prizes will be awarded. The top five winners will receive a DJI Gold Drone. The next five will receive an Apple Watch and the final 20 will receive Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphones.
According to Kelly, participating vendors include Bose, Chief, Christie, DaLite, Gefen, NanoLumens, NEC, Optoma, Philips, Sharp, Vaddio, 3M, and 7 Layer Skinz, with more vendors expected to join the rush by the time the show opens on June 6th. “We’re working with our sponsoring vendors to put together some pretty compelling show promotions that will pay off for resellers with their first show order and pay off even more with different levels of purchase,” Kelly said.
Featured products that resellers will visit on their journey include the BOSE PRO New S1 Pro system, Chief Impact Kiosk, Christie FHQ981-L Flat Panel Display, DaLite Full Vision Screen, NEC V864Q Display, Optoma ProScene ZU1050 Projector, Philips 86BDL305Q Ultra HD Q-Line Display, Sharp PNUH601 Professional Display, and Vaddio Conference Shot AV Bundle.
Here’s how the Stampede InfoComm Gold Rush promotion works. Resellers scan the QR code or download the app in advance of the show. Resellers then receive a list of stops to make each day of the show with points automatically assigned every time a stop is completed. Some of the stops include attending the InfoComm Opening Reception at the OMNIA Nightclub, taking a selfie with a Stampede representative, visiting the Stampede Mobile Technology Showroom that is located at the entrance to the Las Vegas Convention Center, and visiting sponsoring vendor booths. The first five resellers to complete all of their tasks will win a gold drone. The next five resellers will win a gold Apple watch. The final 20 resellers will receive Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphones. All resellers that complete the promotion will receive a special “Got Gold?” t-shirt for playing and win additional Gold Rush points for their use in the online Stampede Reseller Zone.
The Stampede InfoComm 2018 Gold Rush is part of a larger year-long series of exciting sales promotions underway as Stampede celebrates its 20th Anniversary with continued global expansion and the addition of new vendor partners. “Since 1998, Stampede has invested tens of millions of dollars in building the AV industry’s best, most robust and diverse customer base. More importantly, we have invested countless hours in learning about our customers, their business strategies, core competencies and their staff, resulting in the strongest working partnerships in the industry today. All of this has been done to provide our vendor partners with real growth opportunities that combine the best traditional and new products into the next generation system solutions our resellers need to meet their customer needs.”
According to Kelly, Stampede’s 20th anniversary year comes at a time of rapid growth and expansion for the company. In 2016 Stampede acquired Just Lamps and, overnight, became the world’s largest supplier of replacement projector lamps. The acquisition also provided the company with an immediate global footprint throughout the UK, Ireland, western Europe, the Nordics, Asia, and Australia— a footprint that the company is now leveraging by being able to offer manufacturer partners with a robust one-stop way to go to market around the world. “No other distributor can even come close to matching what we can do for manufacturers,” he asserted. “We can literally scale up business opportunities for our partners around the world — opportunities that are supported with the service, support and training that Stampede is renowned for.”
