“Over the last five years, Planar has steadily grown our roster of North American showrooms, seizing the opportunity to connect our amazing customers and partners with the same award-winning visualization products we bring to tradeshows and industry events throughout the year,” said executive vice president Adam Schmidt. “Our showrooms continue to play a critical role in helping customers identify their perfect solution and the addition of these locations bolsters our support, allowing for stronger engagement with more customers across the country.”

The company is celebrating the introduction of its new showrooms with individual grand opening events taking place this month. Local Planar representatives will be in attendance, answering questions and demonstrating the Planar's new display technologies that deliver high-quality visual performance, deployment versatility, and more.

“Planar showrooms provide my clients with a professional, distraction-free atmosphere where they receive a true white glove customer experience,” said Jim Ares, systems designer and senior account executive at Adtech Systems. “Products are displayed in a logical manner with the flexibility to display content that is relative to their particular needs. Showroom staff are knowledgeable of the use cases for different industries and thoughtfully assist clients to understand the best product for their desired outcome. Clients leave with a thorough understanding of pixel pitch, required infrastructure, degree of flexibility and other factors for a successful deployment within their workspace.”
