Catalyst AV member, Custom Partners, held an official Dealer Appreciation Day, sponsored by Lutron at the company’s facility in Plainview, NY. The “mini expo” greeted a steady flow of dealers, who received a sincere thanks for keeping the last 18 months going strong for their customers. 

“No sales gimmicks, no high pressure sales tactics, just a warm and honest thank you for their business during the craziest year we’ve experienced in our nearly 20 years in business!” said Custom Partners president, Rich Radimer. 

Vendors included Lutron, Sonance, iPort, AVPro Edge and Eero. Over sixty-five dealers attended and lunch was served by a giant pizza truck. Door prizes were sponsored by Lutron, Sonance, Eero, AVPro, Pro Control, Sound United, Metra Home Theater and more. Personnel from Lutron, Sonance, iPort, eero, Pro Control, Sound United and more were on hand to talk as well. Every attendee walked away with a shirt and a good time was had by all.  

“Most of our dealers did not go to CEDIA,” Radimer pointed out, “so we felt that having a local ‘mini CEDIA’ would be of great benefit to them and it was!”
