Welcome, Samsung dealers
This is the most common way of saying it. You are welcoming them, so you put a comma after "welcome" to show that you are addressing the Samsung dealers. It could also be like this: Welcome, Samsung dealers!
If it were a command for everybody who reads the sign (not likely) to welcome the dealers, then it would be: Welcome the Samsung dealers or Give a welcome to the Samsung dealers.
If you say "Welcome to ..." you are telling the visitors that they are welcome to wherever they are. For example, at the city limits you might see a sign that says, "Welcome to Oklahoma." Or you might see a little placard next to a dish at an event that says, "Welcome to the olives," or in other words, letting the guests know that they may help themselves and take some olives to eat.
