AMHERST, NEW YORK, February, 10, 2020 — Canadian technology resellers, integrators and end-users will soon be able to experience the latest in AV and related technologies when Stampede, the global leader in value-added ProAV distribution, takes the 2020 North American Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series to Toronto, Canada. The day-long event will be held on February 20th at The Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites Conference Centre & Spa from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Attendee registration is now open here.
“Toronto is quickly becoming one of North America’s fastest growing hubs for technological innovation,” said Stampede President & CEO Kevin Kelly. “The city’s diverse pool of tech talent, coupled with a strong investment in artificial intelligence and machine-learning technologies, make it an intriguing stop on our 2020 North American Big Book of AV Tour.
