The conference will feature a rotating series of educational sessions from D&H manufacturer partners Brother, Cisco Meraki, HP, Intel, Lenovo, and Microsoft; plus a special cybersecurity seminar presented by industry expert Michael O'Hara. Sessions will repeat over the course of the day to allow attendees to more easily arrange their schedules.

Additional participating vendors include APC, Aruba, Dell, Epson, Logitech, Plantronics, LG, and many more. Vendors making their debut at the event include D&H cloud partners Dropbox (cloud-based collaboration) and Eset (internet security), who will be located in the D&H Cloud Solutions booth along with hosted UC provider Intermedia; plus partners Fujitsu, Kodak PIXPRO, Qardio, and SiliconDust.

D&H will host a roster of booths relative to its growing support and enablement offerings at a dedicated "Solutions & Services" pavilion. This multi-booth exhibit will encompass amenities such as the D&H's Partner Marketing Services program, its Cloud Solutions program, a new Custom Services offering, the Pro AV and Digital Signage initiative, the DaaS Device-as-a-Service program, Financial Services, and a Refurbished Goods booth.

The distributor's popular Gaming Experience booth will also be located in the Solutions & Services aisle. However, gaming pods sponsored by Dell and Xbox will be incorporated throughout the Exhibit Hall, where resellers can "test drive" PC and gaming consoles.

In a continued effort to expand customer engagement, D&H has assembled a growing line-up of specialized reseller advisory groups, to assess the real-world needs of customers in the field. Feedback from these meetings will be leveraged to shape future programs. Advisory bodies to be meeting at the event include D&H's "VAR Track" group, the K-12 Advisory Group, and a new cloud-focused group. This is the largest number of advisory sessions D&H has hosted at one of its trade venues.

Door prizes will include a Grand Prize of a $500 American Express Gift Card, plus $100 Centennial gift cards, and a $50 American Express Gift Card for one attendee per seminar.

"It's been an exhilarating year for our technology conferences," said Teri Gilfillan, senior director of marketing development at D&H Distributing. "Our customer base has reacted very well to this year's more education-focused format, taking advantage of a wealth of knowledge direct from manufacturers. We'll continue to offer new engagement and enablement opportunities through assets like our conferences as we move toward our next century of service in the IT industry."
