Representatives from Wells Fargo Capital Finance will be in attendance to promote an exclusive new reseller financing program featuring extended, interest-free terms, which the company is offering through D&H. This option is designed to increase the purchasing power of D&H resellers for sales to the K-12 marketplace. It covers products in categories such as laptops, desktops, tablets, networking products, projectors, and screens; and extending to accessories and gear such as cases, charging docks, headphones and calculators.
The distributor’s renowned Solutions Team will have a booth focusing on D&H’s new Disaster Management initiative.

As with all D&H trade events, this is an active “selling show” for D&H customers, which means attendees receive special discounted pricing for merchandise ordered on the floor. Additional door prizes will be offered, including a 17.3-inch Lenovo IdeaPad for one lucky winner.
“At D&H, we continually try to add value and excitement for our resellers through our trade show offerings.
