Martin Audio showroom in China.Panyu, China (October 30, 2009)–Martin Audio recently opened a high-end showroom in China. The idea was the brainchild of businessman Regan Goh who owns the sound rental/installation company Huifeng Performance Equipment Co.
As one of Martin Audio’s major customers, it was his idea to create a full demo facility for consultants, production companies, dealers and installers in Panyu, a suburb of Guangzhou.
Said ambassador for Martin Audio, David Bissett-Powell, “China is the major market for Martin Audio and Huifeng is our main Chinese dealer, so the move makes perfect sense. Regan and I go back a long way, and he has purchased this building with the sole intention of making it Martin Audio.”
The move has received the full backing of Patrick Lau, who runs Martin Audio’s Asian office, and Kelvin Hui, who runs the Audio Division of Dah Chong Hong, Martin Audio’s distribution company in China, Hong Kong and Macau.
The two-story building occupies around 10,000 square feet; aside from a large demo room and offices, it also includes a dedicated karaoke room (a major market segment in China).
“If anyone within China and South East Asia wants to audition a product, virtually everything is there for demo,” emphasized Bissett-Powell. “Everyone is happy to come to Guangzhou and we would hope that club owners would visit along with their local dealers.”
