PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA, May 30, 2014 — The hottest concert ticket this summer no longer belongs to the Jay-Z and Beyoncé. This distinction now goes to Core Brands, who announced today that it will bring its first-ever multi-brand Summer Tour to 48 markets in June and July to support the launch of an exciting array of new products and dealer programs. 

According to Joe Roberts, Core Brands Vice President of Products and Marketing, the “Core Brands Summer Tour 2014” gives the company the opportunity to connect with its dealers and reinforce the value of its ELAN, Niles, Furman, SpeakerCraft, Panamax, Sunfire, BlueBOLT, and Xantech brands and reinvigorate its base of CI dealers and installers with many new product introductions.

“A completely re-energized Core Brands is ready to unveil its next generation of products and programs, all of which have been carefully designed to help our dealers and installers build their long-term business base,” Roberts said today.  “We are about to begin the most exciting chapter yet in our history, one that is marked by category-defining innovation in product development and cross-brand integration.  Our commitment is to delight our dealers and this is one show they are not going to want to miss!”
