July 25th saw a selection of locksmiths attend the first ABUS Cylinder Systems Roadshow at the Mariott Hotel in Waltham Abbey. This event was ABUS’ 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 headquarters in Germany.
The evening started with a presentation detailing the ABUS company profile, followed by a presentation 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 to take away with them, 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. The meeting was a great success with lots of positive feedback from all attending.
Look out for our next series of shows in October at locations to be confirmed.
