Welcome to Friday, in the middle of summer, which means there’s not much happening for this week’s Distribution Watch. Don’t fret, though: We do have some information from D&H Distributing, so all is not lost. So read on, my friends.

D&H Distributing: The Harrisburg, Pa.-based distributor has planned its New England 2013 Technology Show Aug. 6 at the Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel, Quincy, Mass.  D&H said it expects about 500 attendees and more than 60 participating vendors for this event.  Registration begins at 11 a.m., with seminars initiating at noon. The exhibit floor opens at 3 p.m. 

The event will feature six seminar presentations from Cisco Systems (CSCO), Cloud Nation, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), Intel (INTC), Lenovo and Microsoft (MSFT), on topics including starting a cloud solutions practice, next-generation mobile computing, Windows 8, touch-based technologies, servers, security and more.  Additional exhibitors include Acer, ASUS, Kensington, Linksys, Logitech (LOGI), NetGear (NTGR), Philips, Samsung, Toshiba and Western Digital (WDC) to name a few; plus a roster of accessories, peripherals and components from emerging and established brands.

Vendors who are making a first showing at the New England 2013 Technology Show include CODi (notebooks, cases, bags), NTT Advanced Technology Corp. (mobile telecomm), Ooma (VoIP), QNAP (storage), and Synology America Corp. (storage).

D&H noted it will again feature special show-day-only pricing for items ordered on the floor.  One winner per seminar will receive a Case Logic 30-inch XN Urban Rolling Duffel; and one Grand Prize winner will receive a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad with Retina Display plus an accessory bundle, sponsored by Logitech. 

And that’s Distribution Watch for this week. Check back next week to see if things have picked up in the distribution space. Until then, stay safe.
