HARRISBURG, PA - June 18, 2018 - D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, announces it will host its 2018 Mid-Atlantic Summer Technology Conference 2018 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center, Hershey, PA, on June 28. The company expects close to 1,000 attendees and approximately 100 manufacturers to participate in the event, D&H's first east coast-based IT industry conference of its Centennial year. As usual, registration is at no-cost to D&H customers.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and seminars begin at 10:00 a.m., with the exhibit hall open from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Participating manufacturers include Acer, ASUS, APC, CyberPower, Dell, Google, Logitech, Ricoh, StarTech.com, TP-Link, Targus, Western Digital and others, in a range of categories vital to the SMB marketplace.

The show offers a roster of concurrent seminars throughout the day from industry-leading manufacturers including Microsoft, Cisco, Intel, HP, HP Enterprise, Brother, and Lenovo, plus a seminar on cybersecurity presented by Global Knowledge, a worldwide leader in IT training, which is making its debut appearance at a D&H event. A total of 16 sessions will repeat during the day, accommodating D&H's recent transition toward an educational training focus at its trade shows. The new format provides customers with more opportunities to attend the sessions of their choice and better arrange their days in accordance with their schedules.

D&H will present a new Solutions & Services exhibit area, featuring an array of support services and new technologies under D&H's umbrella. The booth will offer information on D&H's new "Devices-as-a-Service" (DaaS) program, Partner Services marketing tools, the K-12 opportunity and accompanying "White Glove Advantage" and Chromebook offerings, financial services, configuration services, and more. This area will host D&H's Cloud Solutions booth, where attendees can speak with representatives from D&H partners Dropsuite and Intermedia about hosted services. In addition, the Solutions & Services exhibit will showcase D&H's "Pro AV/Digital Signage" linecard, educating resellers on the benefits and profitability of solutions such as menu boards, interactive flat panel (IFP) displays, projectors, and "video walls."

The distributor's popular Gaming Zone exhibit has made a transition as well, now known as the "eSports Gaming Arena." This reflects D&H's recent partnerships with Harrisburg University, the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, and HP, wherein the companies launched a new eSports gaming facility at the university. The exhibit will showcase the latest video gaming gear from top-flight manufacturers. In addition to D&H's PC gaming experts, the head coach from Harrisburg University's eSports team will be at the booth to compete with D&H' attendees in the arena.

To celebrate the distributor's 100th anniversary, D&H will award door prizes including a Centennial giveaway of fifteen $100 American Express gift cards throughout the conference. One lucky winner per seminar will receive a $50 American Express gift card, and a Grand Prize winner of a $500 American Express gift card will be announced at the close of the event.

"We're excited about our technology conferences and the transformations they experience year after year," said Mary Campbell, vice president of marketing at D&H Distributing. "We continue to incorporate the most innovative and market-invigorating developments as they emerge. That could include anything from helping VARs make incremental new profits in exhilarating niche markets such as PC gaming and eSports, or sessions on sweeping trends like global cyber security and the industry's ongoing 'digital transformation.' Our educational offerings will continue to evolve, delivering more value and expertise to help our customers maintain that crucial competitive advantage."
