Consumer Electronics Distributors (C.E.D.), member of the PowerHouse Alliance and premium regional distributor of consumer and specialty electronics for the Chicago metropolitan market and broader Midwest, announced their annual Fall Ball Technology Summit with a series of three events for its dealers across Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin this October. 

The 2019 Fall Ball will kick off on Oct. 2 at C.E.D’s Elk Grove, Ill. location, and will continue the next day in New Berlin, Wisc. The third and final event of the series will take place in Bloomington, Minn. on Oct. 8. All three events will be open for stop-ins from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and will give dealers the opportunity to meet with over 35 manufacturers including KLH, LG, Samsung, Yamaha, JVC, KEF, Denon, TechLogix, URC, Niles Audio and many more. Dealers will also have the opportunity to take part in training sessions from vendors including LG, Samsung, TechLogix, Ring and more.

“We look forward to our Fall Ball Technology Summit every year,” said Mike Baginski, C.E.D. vice president. “The series of events gives all of our dealers the opportunity to meet with manufacturers to preview new technologies, ask questions and learn about new products through live demos. We are looking forward to another very successful event.” 

All locations will serve up delicious food — including home cooked tacos fresh from the grill in Elk Grove Village, and Double B’s BBQ food truck in New Berlin. Attendees can feast as they mingle and get a sneak peak of what’s to come in the Q4 and 2020 buying season including the latest 8K TVs from Samsung and LG, and LG’s new 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector. Attending dealers can also enter raffles to win prizes including smart speakers, TVs and headphones from top brands, plus this year’s grand prize giveaway: an 8K TV.

“Once again, the C.E.D. team is expecting a great turnout at this year’s Fall Ball series,” said Vice President of Sales Ryan Calacci. “It’s nice to see our vendor partners and dealers come together and our annual events gives us the opportunity to show everyone how grateful we are for their support.”
