This month, Kobelco Construction Machinery Australia had its annual dealer conference at the Peppers The Sands Resort in the beautiful Torquay, Victoria. VIP guests from Kobelco Japan joined our dealer network from all over Australia and New Zealand for the occasion, including among others, Kobelco Construction President, Kazuhide Naraki.
The event kicked off with an Ambrose style golf tournament, followed by the Dealer Annual Awards dinner, where Kobelco recognised its highest achieving dealer performers for 2019. Among the most notable awards, Capital Construction Equipment was presented with two awards for achieving Highest Heavy Excavator and Mini Excavator Market Share, BrisVegas Machinery was awarded Most Improved Heavy Excavator Share, Melbourne Tractors was awarded for Highest Retail Unit Sales, and Gato Sales & Service was presented with the Dealer Excellence Award.
The following day had a jam-packed agenda, as the Kobelco Australia team gave a recap of 2019 and laid out what was on the cards for an exciting 2020, with special presentations from our Kobelco Japan guests!
