Denso Asian Conference 2023
The Denso Asian Conference returned with much fanfare in August 2023 after a five-year hiatus.
For over 20 years, the Denso Asian Conference, or DAC for short, has brought together distributors and sales partners from across Asia for presentations, practical demonstrations and face-to-face meetings with representatives from Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the biennial event last took place in 2018; however with the easing of COVID restrictions and international borders reopened, the DAC was finally able to proceed.
After a highly successful conference in 2018, the Denso team were delighted to return to the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort in Phang-nga for this year’s event. Attendees representing 15 countries were presented with a busy schedule of activities, covering a broad range of topics alongside regional and company developments.
Since the previous DAC, regional managers have changed territories, new team members and distributors have been welcomed into the fold, and the Denso product offering has continued to expand – most notably with the launch of Denso Bore-Wrap™ and the acquisition of the global Viscotaq™ visco-elastic coatings business in 2021. The itinerary therefore provided attendees with the opportunity to connect with faces old and new and receive in-depth product knowledge from Denso experts.
This year also saw our distributor partners themselves present to the group, with exceptional presentations from Parallel Industrial Co and 3S Engineering Solutions being highlights of the event.
As is customary with every DAC, the social activities arranged for our assembled guests are just as important to the schedule of events. Evening meals held next to the beach provided invaluable networking opportunities and a chance for everyone to wind down at the end of each day and watch the sunset over the ocean.
And the DAC wouldn’t be complete without the Denso Golf Day held on the final day of the conference. This year the event was held at the Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket and saw competitors facing off in the extreme heat of the Thailand summer over the 18-hole course. The hotly contested event saw Mr Kim of KCP walk away as the victor of this year’s golf trophy for 2023, with admirable efforts put in by all golfers.
With presentations complete, suitcases packed, and the sun-setting on another successful DAC, our assembled guests returned home with renewed knowledge and enthusiasm for the opportunities provided to them. Rohit Laddhad of SKLN Sales & Services PVT Ltd, India commented:
“Attending the DAC conference was an incredible experience. I enjoyed the diverse range of sessions, which helped me deepen my understanding of the DENSO products. The conference provided valuable networking opportunities, connecting me with industry experts and peers that have already proven beneficial for our work.”
From the Denso team, we extend our sincerest thanks to all attendees, contributors and helpers who made this year’s event an incredible experience for all.
