FONA Around the World: FONA VIP Partners’ Summit 2016 – LATAM, Seeing the future

Following FONA’s success in Latin America it only made sense to organise a formal summit to celebrate and discuss the future with our top regional partners.

This was FONA’s first event of its kind in the area and we gathered at the exquisite hotel Estelar Grand Playa de Manzanillo in Cartagena, Colombia.

The two-day event was packed with activities to showcase the spirit of FONA, little did we know it’s already here. Upon arrival we challenged our partners to a friendly soccer game, where we were really shown why Latin America is known for its talent in this sport. Since there was a long-standing relationship already existing between us there was no hesitation to get competitive.

The game was followed by a small cocktail party and a formal dinner at which the FONA Head of Sales LATAM, Dario Aquino, officially welcomed everyone and introduced the FONA team and our counterparts in China and Italy.

The following day started off with a speech by FONA General Manager, Jürgen Kiesel, who congratulated FONA’s partners on their success and urged for our consolidated efforts in continuing our professional growth. Afterwards, there was a presentation by Mr. Aquino, who summarised our results in LATAM and presented FONA’s vision and plans for the future. A presentation followed by FONABOL, our partner in Bolivia, Exprodental from Chile, and last but not least, by one of our key partners in Mexico, Mr. Ayub Safar, from Laboratorios Gayz.

FONA introduced its latest line of rotary instruments and presented the key benefits which include, among others, more power and quieter operation. In addition, the FONA team presented FONA AR, our latest sales tool, and how it can benefit Sales Teams worldwide.

Overall, the event was a roaring success and we would like to thank our partners for attending the first FONA VIP Partners’ Summit 2016 – LATAM. We are already looking forward to the next one!
