Over 150 Kenwood Dealers 'Seize The Beach' in the Dominican Republic

Seize The Beach Long Beach, CA – Kenwood USA Corporation hosted more than 380 guests at the Paradisus Palma Real resort in the Punta Cana district of the Dominican Republic, ending Kenwood’s “Seize The Beach” dealer incentive program.

In summing up the event, Dave Hoag, Director of Sales for Kenwood, said “We all had a fantastic time! It’s always great to escape with our friends, but this year the timing could not have been better for relaxing on a white sand beach and partying with the finest people in our industry. There was also some great brainstorming and idea-sharing between our most successful dealers, the results of which will be seen very soon. I am grateful to have a large group of supportive dealers represented by such outstanding people, and we were honored to host them for a fun and relaxing vacation.”

Keith Lehmann, Senior Vice President of Kenwood’s Consumer Electronics Sector, mentioned to 12voltnews.com “This year’s ‘Seize the Beach’ dealer incentive trip was a fantastic week for all. Our dealers had a great time and the resort was spectacular. A trip of this kind allows us to strengthen relationships and share ideas.”

“What a wonderful week,” Dave Stiehl of Sunbelt Associates told 12voltnews.com. “We had a great group of dealers on the trip. Custom Sounds-Austin, Mike’s Audio-Baton Rouge, CarToys-Tulsa, HiPro-Victoria, Jack’s Stereo- Waco, Mobile One-New Orleans, Vision-Lubbock, Frequency-Houston HiSound and A&B from Dallas really kicked back and enjoyed a relaxing and fun filled week.”

“After the Kenwood trip, it was hard to get back to work. What a great time! Spending time with the Kenwood ‘brass’ and networking with Kenwood retailers was very rewarding,” added Rob Rice – Cartoys of Tulsa.

The “Seize The Beach” incentive program began on January 1 and ran until June 30, 2009. Kenwood retailers that met their sales goal by June 30 automatically qualified for an all-expense-paid trip for two to The Paradisus Palma Real resort in the Dominican Republic.
