Right on the heels of their return from their two-week tour of duty in California, Tenell and Brian hit the road again. This time they met up with Tyler Avery, General Digital’s Sales and Applications Engineer, and headed down to National Harbor, Maryland, for the 2013 Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition.
Tyler serves a key role as the bridge between the sales department and the engineering department. To better satisfy the requirements of his position, it was thought best that Tyler accompany Tenell and Brian in order to man the booth, as well as walk the trade show floor. We felt this would give him a better sense of how our products are often used, since many of our customers also display at Navy League. And so it did! With exhibits of land, sea, and aircraft all around, it was easy for him to see the need for our monitors and display enhancements, and how they are commonly used. “This…has been monumental to my experience and future here at General Digital,” Tyler stated. “It is definitely a great asset to have connections at other companies, and the sooner I can meet people, the more help I can be to General Digital. Simply being at the trade show has helped to transform how I view the position I hold and begin to mold it into its full potential.”
With a better booth location, our 3-man dream team was quite successful in engaging the crowds. Of course, location only played a part in their success. They brought along the trade show veterans: the 37-inch Titan; the 19-inch TwoView; the 15.4-inch Saber PanelMount Combat; and the 8.4-inch Barracuda. This time, though, new to Navy League, we displayed the 52-inch Titan Lite (the commercial-grade iteration of our standard ruggedized Titan large format LCD monitor) and the 21.5-inch SlimLine Micro with QuadView capability. Just imagine playing Sports Champions 2 for the PlayStation 3 with Move System on 52 inches of high definition LCD clarity. Exhibitors and attendees alike became large-screen legends in bowling, archery, boxing, and skiing, among other sports that General Digital’s booth hosted and boasted.
On the last day of the trade show, Tenell, Tyler, and Brian manned the booth in red, white, and blue martial arts uniforms, touting the phrase, “Design this innovative requires discipline this intense.” As expected, they turned quite a few heads and made memorable impressions. Tyler summed it up best: “There were multiple occasions where people came up to our booth for the sole fact that we were wearing [martial arts uniforms]…flipping Brian over my shoulder, like the ragdoll he is, was one of the highlights of the trip. It was a great way to start the last day, and the people watching were all very amused.”
And there you have it! Don’t miss our performance at Navy League Sea-Air-Space Expo 2014!
