ABUS has held its first Cylinder Systems Roadshow for locksmiths at the Marriott Hotel in Waltham Abbey.
The event, which took place at the end of last month, was the first in a series of roadshows designed to host a small, individually selected group of locksmiths, allowing them the opportunity to meet and liaise with the ABUS UK Sales Director, Product Manager and Sales Team Manager along with the Export Product Manager from ABUS HQ in Germany.
The evening started with a presentation detailing the ABUS company profile, followed by a seminar on the 2030 and 2034 patented ABUS Bravus, Zolit and Vitess cylinder systems and details of the ModularMX system (with yet to be fully released new starter kits), followed by a brief overview of the ABUS padlock range.
All attendees were given hands-on training with examples of pinning cylinders and padlocks. Everyone left with a goody bag, plus exclusive access to on-the-night special offers with huge discounts and incentives for purchases made in follow up meetings, along with an opportunity to visit the factory.
Dinner was provided for all guests and special room rates were secured with the hotel for anyone wishing to take advantage of an overnight stay. ABUS said the meeting was a great success with lots of positive feedback from all attending. Another series of shows in October are planned, with locations to be confirmed.
