Vivo makes Europe presence official, marks entry into Romanian, Czech markets
The company has plans of doubling its presence to more than 12 markets across Europe by this year.
Vivo has officially expanded its base to cover the Romanian and Czech markets. Online media events were held for both markets to mark the company’s official entry. The senior management from the Vivo European headquarters at Dusseldorf met the media to make things official along with the teams in the Romanian and Czech offices.
During the events, the company discussed key partnerships and presented the first line-up of smartphones.
“We’re delighted to say Hello in Romanian and Czech! And to officially introduce ourselves, as well as our first smartphones for consumers in Romania and the Czech market. We are saying our first hello here amid a very challenging time for people and businesses worldwide. However, our plans and our commitment to expand our business across Europe have remained unchanged. This follows our company philosophy of doing the right thing, and doing it right,” said Denny Deng, Vice President, President of European Business at Vivo, speaking at the event.
“We have just started our European journey in October last year, and we’ve received great feedback and excitement from both business partners and consumers alike. Ever since our first step to international markets in 2014, we have been committed to bringing new quality experiences to our customers. As we always keep them in mind, and are a brand loved by millions of people worldwide, we are sure we will soon start making new friends in Romania and the Czech market as well,” Deng added.
Vivo launched in six European markets in 2020 and plans to spread to more than 12 by 2021 and the Romanian and Czech markets are the first two for the year. Vivo also has plans to expand into Serbia and Austria in the first half of this year.
“Moving forward, we are more than excited to share the passion of football with our friends around the world, which is even more a reason for us to look forward to the partnership with UEFA, for the upcoming, as well as the UEFA EURO 2024 Championships. Both UEFA and we share the passion for excellence and providing unique and fantastic new experiences for our plans. Our role will be as the UEFA EURO 2020 Global Smartphone,” said Deng.
From this year on, users will see new Vivo smartphones coming out of the strategic collaboration with Zeiss, with whom they will be co-engineering imaging systems for upcoming premium smartphones.
