    Even with the Chicago event, the only way I see that event is with the URL provided, not from the homepage, the advertising is really lacking, unless you are on BeThePro and ask about it how would one know?

    I tried typing in other city names in place of Chicago in the url name and nothing came up

    I used the “Chat Box” on the Bosch site to try and get some information.

    I am sorry say, this has to be a very disorganized event. For something that appears to have started/starting soon and no more updates to the Bosch Power Tour Site.
    The person on the other end could only find two dates for me but lo location??? I left her my email & phone number in hopes to get more on the tour.



    @bethepro
    , @kevin6 – Any other information out there??

    Hey guys-this years tour is a little different. We would love to share more specifics but we found that for competitive reasons, we couldn’t publicly broadcast the tour. It’s hitting bigger job sites and then a week of in market sales promos at multiple distributors in larger markets. The best way to get info is by signing up via email and they will loop you in if there is an event in your city.
    If not, there are several shows, events and demos that show everything (except the training- but that’s coming soon online) that is at the tour stops.
    We promoted it more publicly last year, and will be looking at tour tactics again for 2017 soon. Sorry for any frustration- not intended, just a byproduct of some shenanigans in the industry.

    Kevin,
    Thanks for the clarification. Shame that industry dictates how things are played out.
    I see them stuff happen in my place of work with competitors.

    . It’s hitting bigger job sites and then a week of in market sales promos at multiple distributors in larger markets

    That’s where they get the most impact. On the big jobs out here we get a few different tool companies stop by each year. Irwin is a big one and they always give out a lot of tools and blades.

    Direct marketing on larger job sites would really helps.

    I just had a e-mail this morning that it is at Berlands House of tools in Palatine, IL on the 10th of June from 10 AM to 2PM. Free t shirts for the first 100 customers.

    Address: 20254 N Rand Rd, Palatine, IL 60074
    Phone:(847) 540-9200

    Berlands is a great tool store if you ever get a chance to make it to one. There are 2 or 3 at least in the Chicago area.

    Thanks @Kevin6! I just signed up for the notifications.

    Does it make a difference as to what type of notifications you send out if one toggles DIY for occupation rather than others?

    Thanks for the information Kevin6.
    When I checked out last years power tour…they had barely any people/customer at the event.
    When they visit job sites, thats how they get the most out of it.
