The collective Group of companies’ most ambitious Dealer outreach program to date will kick-off at the Spring 2009 EHX from March 11th through 14th in Orlando, Florida before officially embarking on its 50 city North American tour on March 31st. ‘Takin’ it to the Streets’ underscores a landmark product launch year as well as the introduction of major new selling promotions developed to help the Group’s Dealer base prosper during these different times. The announcement was made by Paul Starkey, ELAN’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
