Funktion One China showcases F1201 at dealer event
CHINA: Funktion One’s distributor for China, Hong Kong and Macau recently hosted a dealer event at the Louis Steakhouse in downtown Panyu District, Guangzhou, to help support the launch of its new F1201 speaker. Flying in especially for the event was F1 business development director, Bill Woods, who welcomed more than 150 dealers and customers from all over China.
Hosted by W Lee, owner of Hiroshi Technologies/Funktion One China, the showcase saw demonstrations of a number of additional F1 products, including Resolution 2, Resolution 3, F218 Mk2, F101, F81 and the MB212. Product specialist, Chan Yu Hing was also in attendance.
Mr Woods took the opportunity to talk guests through Funktion One’s history, people and design philosophy, followed by an overview of the manufacturer’s product catalogue, before moving onto demonstrating the F1201. This involved playing a nightclub track, a theatre piece and then a classical recording to show the speaker’s flexibility. This was followed by an impromptu rendition of Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way’ by Mr ‘old blue eyes’ Woods, which was met with rapturous applause.
‘It was such a pleasure meeting so many dealers in China,’ said Mr Woods. ‘Over the years I have made many product presentations and I was determined to make an impression. Having done business in China for many years I understand the importance of engaging the audience.
‘The reaction we got to the presentation – with the simultaneous Chinese translation provided by Hing and Freddie – was amazing,’ he added. ‘W Lee and his team were great and the venue was stunning. I am sure we will be writing great business on the F1201 and its little brothers over the coming months.’
