06 May Dahon’s International Distributor Conference
Good times in Kuala Lumpur for 6th annual DIDC
Dahon rounded off last month with our 6th annual International Distributor Conference (DIDC) in the modern metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Each year we invite our global network of distributors to get together, preview and test ride next year’s models and catch up on technology and marketing developments. We are ever proud that our folding bikes are pedaled the world over, something that could not be achieved without a dedicated and enthusiastic distribution network.
The conference was held at the Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside hotel and opened by Dahon’s founder and CEO Dr. David Hon on Monday April 22nd. Over three days various members of the Dahon design, engineering, sales and marketing departments gave presentations and led workshops. It’s always a pleasure to exchange ideas and feedback with our partners, something we don’t always get the chance to do at busy bike shows. The conference is also a chance to review the previous year and award our top performers. The honors were handed out as follows, from left to right:
Best Service Provider – Motordealer (Spain)
Social Media Champion – Indigo Trading (South Africa)
Best Distributor Sales – Buzaglo (Netherlands)
Best New Distributor – Nava Bike (Thailand)
Best Brand Promoter – Akibo (Japan)
Mideweek saw the entire group were treated to a river cruise and dinner to take in Kuala Lumpur’s impressive skyline, including the world famous Petronas Towers. Feedback on the bikes and meeting was positive all round and we already look forward to next year’s event! More photos can be found on Dahon’s official facebook page.
