KONKA announces partnership with esports media company
April 1, 2020

Technology manufacturer, KONKA have announced that they will be supplying Oceania and South East Asia based eSports media company LetsPlay.Live’s (LPL) with brand new gaming monitors and televisions as the exclusive monitor partner.

With KONKA gaming monitors now available in New Zealand retail outlets, the transition into eSports made perfect sense for the brand.

KONKA National Product Manager Aneil Daya advised “we’re thrilled to be jumping into the ANZ eSports space as the sport is accelerating globally. LPL are at the top of the game in the region and within New Zealand so we’re excited to see where the partnership takes us and our brand.”

LPL Managing Director and Co-Founder Duane Mutu adds “our hope is that by partnering with KONKA we can introduce a new, relevant audience to their brand and product, and equally that LPL eSports will be elevated and supported by the team behind KONKA.”

Competitors in LPL’s LAN finals and attendees at their off-site activations will experience the new KONKA gaming monitors first-hand. The monitors will also feature in the eSports broadcaster’s upcoming studio tour later this year.

Konka is proud of its strategic partnerships with some of the industry’s top brands including: Panasonic, LG Electronics, Hitachi, Thomson, Philips, Samsung, Sharp & Toshiba to name a few.

Established in 2006, Konka New Zealand is a New Zealand extension of the Konka Group which was established in May 1980 as an International Electronics Corporation. With nearly four decades of research and development, the Konka Group is now considered one of the leading suppliers of consumer electronics with successful business in over 100 countries.
