NILES, IL., July 27, 2017—Shure, widely recognized as the world´s leading manufacturer of microphones and audio electronics, celebrated its expanded presence in Latin America with the inauguration of its most recent office in São Paulo, Brazil. This new location reinforces the Company’s long-term commitment to the region.
The São Paulo office is more than a functional workspace. Designed from the ground up, every construction decision and architectural detail was planned with the customer in mind. After entering the 2,700 square foot (822 m²) space, guests access the Experience Center, which incorporates four distinct areas. The Retail Center highlights the extensive wired, wireless and listening product portfolio, and the in-store promotional support available to all authorized resellers. The state-of-the-art Boardroom and Conference Room seamlessly integrate award-winning Microflex® Advance™ and Microflex® Wireless A/V conferencing solutions. Finally, the acoustically treated Training Room is an intimate, versatile space that easily converts from stage, to studio, to classroom.
“The Shure São Paulo office is the heart of our business in Latin America. We designed the space as an inclusive environment that truly represents who we are as a brand. With best-in-class training, demo, showroom, performance and meeting facilities, we will now bring our industry-leading support and service to another level,” commented José Rivas, Managing Director for Shure Latin America.
