Ducati Malaysia wins big at Global Dealer Conference 2022
Next Bike Sdn Bhd won three awards at the recent Ducati Global Dealer Conference 2022
Next Bike Sdn Bhd, the official distributor for Ducati motorcycles in Malaysia, recently won three illustrious accolades at the Ducati Global Dealer Conference 2022.
The three titles were:
• “Global Distributor Of The Year 2022”
• “Best Marketing Team 2022 APAC”
• “Best Commercial After Sales Team 2022 APAC”
The annual Ducati Global Dealer Conference event - held to celebrate and unite the global network of Ducati dealerships - returned to a physical format after running digitally over the recent years.
It was hosted at The Forte Village Resort in Sardinia (Italy) from 16th – 18th October 2022, which itself was an incredible location and setting for the live experience that featured key dealer conference talking points, the APAC national meeting, new model year previews, and of course the awards ceremony.
This significant trio of recognitions builds on Ducati Malaysia and Next Bike Sdn Bhd’s sensational momentum after an equally impressive showing the year before, where it was also awarded the titles of Best Marketing Team 2021 APAC and Best Commercial After Sales Team 2021 APAC.
The achievement also marks a proud moment for Malaysia as it places the Malaysian Ducati community and the entire Malaysian motorcycle industry on a pedestal, making it a true example of excellence to the incredible network of Ducati dealers and representatives around the world.
The three awards for Ducati Malaysia also arrive as celebrations of the invaluable efforts from the local network of Ducati dealers that have continued to grow the love for the Ducati brand and bring it closer to customers nationwide:
• Ducati Sungai Buloh - Welly World Cycle
• Ducati Penang - Sheng Fatt Motor Sdn. Bhd.
• Ducati Kuala Lumpur - Madani Greatlink Sdn Bhd
• Ducati Johor Bahru - Ultra Maxlink Sdn Bhd
With these achievements, Next Bike Sdn Bhd will look towards elevating Ducati Malaysia to even greater heights and making the Malaysian market a steadfast benchmark for the Ducati brand globally.
Speaking on the achievement, Mr. Marco Biondi, Ducati Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Asia Pacific, said, “Malaysia has proven to be an incredibly successful market in recent years, and beyond that, the Ducati riders community in the country has continued to grow, attracting new owners and existing owners who have found it such a rewarding affiliation.
It comes as no surprise that the Ducati Malaysia team’s relentless passion for the brand and full throttle efforts by all departments have been a huge driving force behind the country’s high performance levels across all aspects. Ducati Malaysia are highly deserving of the 3 accolades, and they have continued to raise the bar even after being recognized in 2021 as the Best Marketing Team and Best Commercial After Sales Team in APAC.
"Present at the event to receive the recognitions was Mr. Dennis Michael, Head of Company at Next Bike Sdn Bhd, who shared a few words on behalf of the Ducati Malaysia team said, “This award is a celebration of the entire Ducati Malaysia family, from the working team keeping all the gears turning rapidly every single day, to our passionate community of owners and customers."
"There is no question that the Ducati brand continues to strengthen its global presence, and the teams in every individual country have worked tirelessly. We are just proud, humbled and grateful that all the work has continued to yield amazing results for us."
