Thomsun and Yamaha gather audio industry together in Dubai


UAE:Dubai-based distributor Thomsun Trading recently held a large-scale Yamaha event at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel in Dubai, inviting over 150 attendees largely from the systems installation and sound rental markets to come and explore the latest audio innovations from the Japanese manufacturer. An Evening with Yamaha & Thomsun is an event that takes place annually. Beyond the opportunity to get hands-on with the latest products, the format is said to provide a more collaborative approach in allowing Yamaha to better understand client knowledge levels and therefore offer better, more tailored, support locally.

“Our annual Evening with Yamaha & Thomsun programme is a regular feature in which both companies invite our valuable partners and clients to come and share their valuable time with us,” explained Thomsun’s Jose dos Santos “While regular seminars and trainings are held jointly by us on an ongoing basis, we want to reiterate our continued support to our clients. Events such as this one, helps everyone get comfortable with each other, to a level where people feel they can reach out to us without any inhibitions.”

This year, as part of the event the two companies officially launched the new DM7 and DM7c digital mixers to a local audience, while also showcasing VXL1B16/VXL1W16 column speakers paired with DXS12 subwoofers, DBR15 active 15-inch PA speakers with DXS18XLF sub and CBR15 passive speaker with PX5 amplifier. “These sessions provide good insight of our product line to our clients, however the event really is just a great opportunity to gather the whole industry together with some nice food and drink," added dos Santos. "We were happy have Biju Thomas, director at Thomsun Trading among us, and we were joined by Jin Sakamoto, managing director of Yamaha Music Gulf and Kazuya Yoshimura, general manager of sales and marketing from Yamaha, who offered their sincere gratitude to our ever-growing list of clients.”
