FBT UK Announces Italy Trip Winner
Michelle Holding of All Parties and Events has been confirmed as the winner of FBT UK’s BPM | PRO competition, which offered one lucky winner the chance to enjoy a trip to FBT’s Italian HQ and factory. The competition involved pre-registration on the FBT website and then dropping a card in the entry box on FBT’s stand at the show in Birmingham.
For the trip Michelle will travel with the FBT UK team to FBT’s head office in Italy. During her two night stay she will have the opportunity to hear demonstrations of FBT’s range of sound systems, tour the FBT HQ and enjoy a little Italian hospitality.
Talking after the competition was drawn yesterday, FBT UK’s Marketing Manager, Jack Wilson, explained how the idea came about. “We’re so happy with the way the competition has been received, at BPM | PRO this year we wanted to make a big impact – not only by displaying our latest products, but also by offering our end users the chance to win something they otherwise wouldn’t be able to do first-hand. The idea came about when we were brainstorming a few fun ideas in the UK office and I suggested taking someone with us to the company’s Italian HQ. Needless to say, it wasn’t long until we had a quick registration site mocked up and the details were passed to Mark Parkhouse (Managing Director) for final approval; he swiftly agreed and said ‘Let’s do it!’ From there we were amazed with the response! A huge number of people had registered in the first few days of the competition, with many more registering on our stand at the show itself. Today we drew the winner live on Facebook and the reaction down the phone was amazing, it really made us excited and we now can’t wait to take our lucky winner away to visit our HQ in Recanati, Italy.”
Since launching in the UK in 2012, FBT UK has built up a loyal customer base, including many mobile DJs. FBT itself is a very well-established manufacturer of speakers with a worldwide reputation. At this year’s BPM | PRO show, FBT UK not only ran the Italy Trip competition, but also showcased the brand new CS-1000 active compact line array system, which is generating lots of interest in the mobile DJ world.
Speaking after finding out about her win, Michelle said, “I’m totally bowled over; I entered but really didn’t expect to win. Having never won anything like this in the past, it was a complete shock! Interestingly, we have been seriously considering a new FBT CS-1000 system having had a demo at BPM | PRO. It really packed quite a punch, so it will be amazing to get another demo, but this time in Italy! The guys at FBT have even been kind enough to include Pete (my husband), so we are getting a mini break together as well as seeing these systems being built first hand. We really can’t wait to go!”
The trip to Italy will take place from Tuesday the 4th to Thursday the 6th of October and will also be attended by Pro Mobile’s Editor, Eddie Short, so look out for a full report in the next issue of the magazine.
