GrandCare Systems will be exhibiting along with fellow agetek members: Presto!, ClearSounds Communications, VRI, Home Controls and more…

GrandCare will be hosting a special ON-SITE manufacturer-hosted dealer team training in the Convention Center before CEDIA Expo begins.  This is open too ALL Authorized GrandCare Dealers (old and new).  GrandCare will also be offering a brief refresher course open to current authorized dealers.

Look for GrandCare at their Manufacturer Training Course – open to all – during CEDIA on Saturday from 4 – 530p and during the Home Health Panel on Friday from 2 – 4p.

SPACE is very limited in this pavilion!  We are already over half booked and registration hasn’t even started yet (June 1)
