BECO to Expand Sales Market in Bali

 

The staff members at the BECO brand booth presented their market expansion plan to 2FIRSTS. They revealed that disposable e-cigarettes are quite popular in Bali and Surabaya, but many shops in cities like Bandung are unable to accept disposable devices. Consequently, BECO is currently planning to expand its market in Bali and has identified Surabaya as the next target for development.

 

Their expansion strategy includes collaborating with large distributors in first-tier cities to conduct on-the-ground promotion and sales activities. Additionally, they have adopted a promotional strategy that involves leveraging social media and retail stores to advertise new products.

 

When discussing the legal regulations in Indonesia, a BECO staff member mentioned a challenge, which is the relatively high consumption tax in Indonesia, resulting in limited profits for businesses. They hope that the government will consider reducing taxes on disposable equipment to promote sustainable growth in the industry.

 

FREEMAX to Launch New Open-system Device in 2024

 

The staff at the FREEMAX booth believe that Indonesian consumers have a strong purchasing power in the e-cigarette sector, but the market favors open systems. Consequently, FREEMAX plans to launch new open system products next year to cater to the demands of the Indonesian market.
