KV2 announces Asian Pacific distributor of the year at distributor meeting
WORLD: Following the close of the recent Pro Light & Sound exhibition in Frankfurt, many European manufacturers welcomed their international distributors and dealers to their factories. It is becoming a customary event for many exhibitors to prolong their marketing activities during what is a congested period, but one that ultimately builds stronger relationships.
Following the tradeshow, the KV2 team raced back to the company’s headquarters in Milevsko in order to welcome the brand’s global partners for the two-day 2013 distributor meeting. Following on from the initial 2012 meeting, distributors were invited to inspect the renovations at the factory that now includes a new paint shop, an electronics production line, a demonstration area and one of Europe's largest anechoic chambers.
Demonstrations and seminars were run throughout the day before distributors departed for their accommodation in the scenic old town of Tabor. The event was rounded off with an evening dinner hosted by KV2 where the Distributor Awards for 2012 were presented. Lift Distribution for Canada and the US were handed the Asian Pacific Distributor of the year, whilst the European Distributor of the year was awarded to Audiopro of Slovenia. The Middle East/Africa Distributor of the year went to Cinetekk of India.
‘It is always great to have our distributors visit us here in Czech as they get a real shot of KV2's philosophy,’ said director of sales and marketing Dave Croxton. ‘Our company direction is quite different from the majority of the industry and when they are here they get a true sense of the ideals that enable us to build some of the highest quality sound reinforcement available today.’
At this year’s Pro Light & Sound, KV2 launched the active driven modular K.Rig point source system, ESD15 three way speaker, Compex system controller and SDD3 digital delay on the show floor whilst powerfully demonstrating their SL loudspeaker series on the outdoor demonstration stage outside Hall 8 to critical acclaim.
