Nikon India launches COOLPIX camera zone


  Nikon plans to start up more than 100 such exclusive zones in key markets like Delhi, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, UP, Maharashtra, Assam & Gujarat. Being vital and primary to Nikon's consumer outreach strategy, the company will invest over 60% of its marketing spend on this shop-in-shop concept.
At the exclusive COOLPIX Zone, consumers will get to touch; feel and experience the entire range of Nikon's compact cameras along with expert guidance and technical know how, all under one roof. For this Nikon has trained in shop promoters at Nikon's Head Office which is based in Gurgaon, before being deployed in the market. These promoters have been imparted an in-depth training on each technicality of a product. In addition to this the company has also put in place special technical team at its branch offices in Mumbai & Kolkata. The company plans to hire and train 200 in shop promoters by the end of the current financial year. Most importantly, this zone empowers consumers to obtain first hand information on entire range of products and make an informed choice. Nikon exclusive COOLPIX zone is an attempt to provide customers with an interactive and informative shopping experience. The company is looking forward to a positive response to this retail enhancement from the consumers. In the early part of 2009, Nikon had established its exclusive D-SLR Zones in Delhi and Mumbai for professional and armature photographers.

This is the world's first DSLR camera with a 450 degree rotating screen.  With offices in Mumbai, Kolkata and another one to be opened in the southern region, Nikon is strengthening its distribution network all across India. The company has established two new ASCs (authorized service centers) in 2009 in addition to thirteen existing in 2008, making it a total of fifteen, and is looking forward to further expand the service base so that our customers can enjoy our complete service support. Nikon has also recently set up exclusive DSLR zones in Delhi and Mumbai which showcase the entire range of DSLR cameras, NIKKOR lenses and an elaborate COOLPIX range of compact cameras.
