Successful 2022 European Dealer Conference for Doosan
Under the theme of UNITE 2022, Doosan held the company’s European Dealer Conference in Barcelona from 4-6 April 2022. The company normally organizes these meetings every two years and the last one was held in Lisbon in February 2020.
The event had an audience of 182 attendees, 134 of which were Doosan European dealers from 22 countries. Among the attendees were members of the Hyundai Doosan Infracore executive team from Korea, as well as managers from various areas of the company.
Mr Seunghyun Oh, CEO of Hyundai Doosan Infracore, opened the day with a keynote speech about Hyundai Doosan Infracore globally. He spoke about the company's achievements, product portfolio, proven product quality, opportunities and new technologies for the future.
Mr Oh also described the global market outlook and the strategic direction of the company. He confirmed the record market share in Doosan’s markets including wheel loaders and crawler excavators, with record sales in 2021.
Mr Oh also reminded the audience of the great development capacity at Doosan, with the launch of 20 new machines last year and the multiple international awards won by various Doosan models.

Some of the dealers attending made presentations about their trajectory and growth, sharing their experiences with the rest of the audience.
