RETAILERS EXPERIENCE A LIVE PREVIEW OF LG’S 2008 OFFERING
Sydney, 15 July, 2008: Over the past four weeks, LG Electronics has reinforced its position as a leader in sophisticated design and smart technology amongst hundreds of valued retailers across the nation during the ‘Tonight Live’ themed 8th Annual LG Roadshow. Touring Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne, and completing its second show in Sydney tonight, LG has been providing its guests with an exclusive hands-on demonstration of recently and soon-to-be released products across its TV, AV, IT and Whitegood categories.
LG also showcased its extensive Mobile Phone range for the first time this year. Daniel Shin, Managing Director, LG Electronics Australia, said the Annual LG Roadshow is a highly anticipated event on the consumer electronics calendar and provides LG with a great opportunity to thank retailers their for continued support.
“The Roadshow provides us with an important two way platform – firstly for LG to showcase its latest in premium offerings across all categories, and secondly, yet of equal standing, is the opportunity for us to receive feedback from the retailers who are talking to consumers daily about LG products. This feedback is invaluable as LG invests significantly in research and development to ensure our products meet consumer needs,” said Mr. Shin.
Stealing the spotlight at the show was LG’s world slimmest LCD TV (42LG61YD). At only 44.7mm depth, it forms part of the sleek and visually stunning Scarlet LCD TV Series. The range features a bold splash of colour on the back panel; Full High Definition; Intelligent Sensor that analyses ambient light and automatically adjusts accordingly; and Invisible Speakers personally tuned by renowned audio expert Mr. Mark Levinson.
Other products featuring in the line-up include:
• Stainless Steel Side by Side In-Door Ice Maker and Top Mount Water Dispenser refrigerators – to be launched into the market later this month and early August respectively;
