At new head office.

Last week, 25 of Jura’s key retail partners gathered at the newly opened head office for an intimate preview of the latest retail innovations for 2018.

Guests were privy to an exclusive preview of Jura’s new ‘premium mid segment’, the S8. Guests were particularly impressed with the machine’s value proposition –features from the premium line, but a price tag of the mid line.

Jura also unveiled its new premium point of sale concept; the platform for which Jura Live will be directly accessible to consumers in-store. Jura Live is a personalised, one-on-one video learning experience that allows the consumer to access product demonstrations and advice from a Jura expert – all live from the studio in Melbourne.

After an hour of workshops, guests were transported to the topmost point of Melbourne for an exclusive six course dinner at Eureka 89 to celebrate Jura’s 10 years in Australia with its key retailers.

Some participated in the Eureka Edge experience – a platform which extends from Eureka Tower’s 88th floor and suspends participants nearly 300 meters over Melbourne in a glass cube. The night was topped off with entertainment provided by Jazz duo, Ticket to Vegas.
