The landscape of our industry continues to shift and change with the steady introduction of new products and technologies.

As part of our commitment to helping
dealers and integrators adapt to evolving
technologies, TRI-ED offers an
array of ongoing training events and
Counter Days in each of its 60 branch locations.
Another important component of our training
initiatives is TRI-ED’s Technology Roadshow Program.
These free, one-day events offer a full day
of training classes and presentations, followed by a
Vendor Expo showcasing the latest product offerings
from many of our vendor partners.
The Roadshows traditionally focus heavily on
the exploding IP Video sector and deliver primarily
video/IP-centric trainings and the hands-on
demos dealers need to successfully compete in
this growing business sector. The 2014 Technology
Roadshow training offerings, however, now span
ALL product categories—CCTV, IP Video, access
control, fire, intrusion, sound, communications,
structured cabling and home automation.
TRI-ED hosts these one day Technology
Roadshows to familiarize customers with the latest
technologies in the marketplace. These training
and Expo events are very helpful to TRI-ED’s
dealers and integrators and educate them on the
constantly changing products and technologies
impacting our industry.
The Technology Roadshow has recently made
stops in Chicago, Orlando and Long Island, and
the upcoming schedule shapes up like this:
Austin, Texas Roadshow September 3, 2014 at Holiday Inn Austin Midtown
Houston, Texas Roadshow October 7, 2014 at The Hilton North Houston
Burbank, California Roadshow November 12, 2014 at Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport
The Roadshows kick off at 8:30 a.m. with registration
and breakfast, followed by a variety of training
classes and presentations. Lunch is served at noon,
followed by additional presentation sessions that run
until 4:45 p.m. The Expo Hall opens at 5 p.m. and
features over 25 exhibitors and a dinner reception.
TRI-ED’s Technology Roadshows are instrumental
in helping customers stay ahead of the
rapidly changing technologies, particularly those
impacting the video security market. All security
professionals who want to ensure they keep
current with the latest products and applications
should plan to attend when the Roadshow makes a
stop in their market.
The Roadshows are attracting large crowds and
are indicative of the need for continual education
and training. TRI-ED is pleased to meet that need.
Space is limited so attendees are encouraged to
pre-register at www.tri-ed.com.
