BEIJING, CHINA—Martin Audio recently opened an elegant showroom in a prestigious shopping district in China.
The idea was the brainchild of wealthy businessman Regan Goh, who owns sound rental/installation company Huifeng Performance Equipment Co.
As one of Martin Audio’s major customers, he came up with the idea of opening a full demo facility for consultants, production companies, dealers, and installers in Panyu, a suburb of Guangzhou.
Says 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 — in fact the signage over the large shop window simply states ‘Martin Audio.’ Regan also supports King Kong, a leading sound engineer in China, of the Martin Audio Business Development Centre, which will be closely linked with this new facility.”
The new building occupies around 10,000 sq. ft and is set on two floors. Aside from a large demo room and offices, it also includes a dedicated karaoke room (a major market segment in China).
The new facility opened in time for Chinese National Day on October 1st — celebrating 60 years since the foundation of the People’s Republic of China.
