Letter From "Denon" On Being An Ambassador


There have been a lot of you asking about the André Rieu
Ambassador promotion and if you can do it in Australia also.
from Denon and I thought I would post it here as it explains what it is
and where ~ the letter should clear this up for everyone now.

Thank you for your note. Here is some clarification:

The promotion we are doing is for the United States only. The actual title we are using is Official Denon Ambassadors for Andre Rieu. We have made no arrangements for that promotion outside of the United States.

We have over 200 fans enlisted in the United States as Denon Ambassador’s for Andre Rieu and we expect that number to grow to 500 plus by the spring.
As many of our fans are not aware of which record labels have the rights to Andre Rieu products in different countries, there may have been some confusion.

We have received emails from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada from folks pleading to be a part of this exciting team. Unfortunately we do not legally have the rights to sell cds and dvds directly to those countries. We have taken the liberty of contacting all of our Denon Ambassadors to remind them that our efforts are U.S. exclusive.

The person mentioned in your note may have been unaware that this was a U.S. only promotion and has subsequently been notified.

Although I don't "qualify" for an Official Ambassador, Denon staff was kind enough to send me the reply as below, so I could share this with you too. It explains quite well how the CD/DVD sales work:

"The Denon disks are legally imported to Canada but we can not legally market them as we are not the record label with rights in Canada. Those cds and dvds count as US sales to the company that exports them to Canada. In other words, it would be the same as if you purchased a cd in the U.S. And then went to Canada to sell it. We have no rights to it. But the more Canadiens buy the more the exporter will buy from us. But the job of selling or promoting maestro Rieu in Canada is legally out of our control."

DENON has probably received tons of emails from non-US fans so I think their effort in replying to us should be appreciated regardless.
