Recently Yamaha Malaysia organized Yamaha Commercial Audio Annual Meet 2009 at Thistle Hotel Port Dickson on 17th, 18th & 19th November 2009. It is a way for the dealers to get together for 3 days at Port Dickson and at the same time learn the new Yamaha products. The theme for this year is “Staying Ahead”. The dealers consist of mainly two groups which is the Yamaha Dealer and the Yamaha project dealers or the system integrator (SI).
The day starts with the welcome speech by Mr Hitoshi Mochizuki the Managing Director of Yamaha Malaysia followed Mr. Chiam the General Manager PAC to address on the marketing issues. One of the key point mentioned is they will staying ahead of the competitor by adapting the digital network audio system in the sound equipment and soon a new fully digital Yamaha Mixer will be launch. During the presentation they just show briefly the new Yamaha Mixer on the slide and judging from everyone curiosity it should be a great product. As the pace of digital technology continues to accelerate, the professional audio market demand is growing and rapidly evolving and staying ahead.
The organizer team really takes care of the dealers and I must say they did a wonderful job for this three day’s event. They are Simon Chin, Patricia Leow, Ivy Ong and Alvin headed by Mien Jee. We had a wonderful time to interact with them.
The content of the seminar concentrated mostly on the Digital Network Audio system which will be the next fully happening in Audio Industry. In the afternoon section the participants was break out into two groups mainly the Yamaha Dealers and the System Integrator dealers group to discuss about the business ideas, ways to improve on products and delivery issue and problem that face by the dealers in promoting the products. This was in fact a very good way to interact among our self with Yamaha team. Well done.
