Dear Lee and Members,

Before our beloved brand is completely in Shenzhen, do you think we could arrange a trip in Struer ?

Like two/three days with visit of the factory, Cube and museum.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go to the first one.

Let's see what you think.

I went to Struer museum last year, for vintage enthusiast a must see, and a factory tour with fellow Beoworlders would be a dream come true

All shareholders (even a few shares are enough) are invited to go to the Annual Meeting each year.

This usually includes a factory tour (of what is left of the production in Struer), visiting the 'Gården' (HQ of B&O) and other interesting things (might be different from year to year).

Staying in Struer, you can easily visit the museum too (which I can recommend).

Of course an organized visit for Beoworlders would be different and probably even more interesting.

But in case this will not happen, there is your option!

Personally I'd very much like to join you all, if a tour could be organized - would be fun Yes - thumbs up

That is part of their payment.

They are allowed to buy a certain amount of gear within 2-3 years time with a discount - nothing unusual actually.

P.S. 'huge' depends on your definition of 'huge' ;-)

In 2007 I started my B&O career with only a Beosound 2300, then 10 years later I have a complete multiroom ml system with lots of B&O products Cool

Is it the Beovirus that infected me ? Surprise

I would definitely be interested in a trip to Struer to fulfil a long time ambition. This year would be good for me particularly so let's see if we can get a trip organised. I am happy to help with the organisation so just let me know. Simon.

Those were the days, my friends ...

... in 2012 with our very kind hosts of the Olufsen family and Jette, who organized the tour on behalf of B&O.

To organise a trip is quite an undertaking both for Beoworld and for B&O. B&O are simply the most wonderful hosts and will want any trip to be very special. Clearly this requires planning and also cannot interfere with new product launches - you would also want to meet Geoff Martin, who for me was probably the highlight of my trip, though everyone was so welcoming it feels a bit hard to pick a best bit. I am sure B&O are aware of this thread and will be working out how they can assist as soon as they can.

Well I was lucky enough to win participation in 2012 - there were more requests than places -  (I'm on Keith's picture but won't tell you who Wink) and it sounds tempting to re-meet after 5 years. On the other hand it seems fair to let others have the choice of a next visit. But if there would be an empty spot... Wink

Meeting the ones from 2012 extended by new ones would really be nice...

Much has changed (at B&O) in Struer since 2012 - and even more since 2007.

It might be interesting (or maybe disappointing?) even for those, who were there earlier.

I wonder how far the plans for the new 'Innovation Lab' in the old production facilities will be in september?

http://dagbladet-holstebro-struer.dk/struer/BO-samler-kraefterne-i-nyt-stort-innovations-center/artikel/250791

I am pretty sure the guys there would be delighted to tell new stories - if it can be organized.

 

Of course a lot of the Beoworlders would want to listen to and hear about the BL90 (and of the audio engine in the BV's).

Would be interesting if e.g. Lyle Clarke could share some of the thoughs behind the user interface of the BS Moment.

Maybe they - in the fall - even have new BV's to show?

It is always interesting to see, how they work with aluminium and the anodising process - the main production going on there nowadays.

How about digging into the B&O Home Automation and NL?

 

What do you want to hear about - if....?
