Registration begins at 12:00 p.m. seminars begin at 1:00 p.m., and the exhibit hall is open from 4:00 to 8:30 p.m.

The event will feature six seminars from industry leaders including Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, HP, Lenovo, and Plantronics, on topics ranging from collaboration solutions, mobility, and audio software management, to the latest Windows 10 PC refresh opportunities. Additional participating vendors include Acer, ASUS, Brother, Buffalo, Crucial, Dell, Ricoh, Samsung, Targus, WD and many others.

Vendors making their first appearance at D&H’s West Coast event include Compulocks stands and mounts, Mota drone cameras and cases, SureCall cell phone boosters, and G-Technology storage solutions.

Registration at this year’s West Coast event has been climbing compared to previous years, attracting more resellers and dealers than ever to take advantage of its value-added proposition. Attendees can get a first-hand look at the latest generation of technologies and developing trends, from voice-assisted devices or mobility-driven solutions to new PC gaming modification products.

As attendees enter, they will be greeted by the sight of the new D&H In-booth Live Vendor Demo area, featuring educational sessions from both Cisco (on its Spark collaboration platform) and Microsoft (on the its CSP Cloud Solution Provider program). Presentations will be conducted on a rotating basis, on the hour and the half-hour over the course of the day, so resellers can attend at their convenience. In addition, D&H will host its popular “Gaming Experience” zone at the event, wherein attendees can learn about some of the market’s most innovative components for superior PC gaming capabilities.

Like all D&H’s trade events, the show offers special one-day-only discounts for attendees who make purchases on the floor. Giveaways include a Grand Prize of a $500 American Express gift card, and a $100 American Express gift card prize awarded to one lucky attendee at each seminar. Behind-the-scenes, resellers will commune at D&H’s “VAR Track,” “K-12 Advisory Board,” and “Cloud Training” customer engagement groups to share feedback on industry developments and D&H services.

“We’re excited to see our West Coast event gain momentum as we bring more amenities and effective training opportunities to this venue during our Centennial Countdown year,” said Mary Campbell, D&H’s vice president of marketing. “As our customers continue to navigate this quickly-evolving marketplace, we look forward to delivering real-world knowledge straight from our vendor partners, outlining ways that new technologies and market adaptations will drive business in the future. That’s where strategies such as hosted offerings and sophisticated collaboration solutions can help resellers find new levels of success.”
