Advice how to buy 8331 whites at 1st visit to Finland

Dear Genelec community.
After many years of admiring Genelec monitors, I am being brought by an unique family trip (with brother & sisters) to the Baltic sea this June. 
We are coming from a distant place at the Southern hemisphere for first time - on my near to 50 years - and will stop by at Helsinki for almost a day.

Since, I do have a minute studio, the recent Ones 8331 (in unobstrusive white colour) would be an excellent monitoring solution.
I am willing to travel the rest of the trip back promising to hold them with care (and heart for sure blush).
Therefore, I am asking here for the possibility to acquire them hopefully "street price", since being so recent they wouldn't be 2nd hand opportunities or demos.
OTOH there might be test units somewhere not so far angel.

I would happily welcome a direction to a responsive contact to the above situation.
Dreaming Regards (so far).

Dear Nachocl.ear,

Thank you for the post, and your interest of the new 8331A! Unfortunately the 8331A is not available to buy just yet.indecision
Carefully estimating, it should be available for the customers in August.

In this case, I would recommend to stay patient and ask the availability from your nearest distributor. You can find your nearest distributor contact information from link below:

Best Regards,

Thank you for your precise answer Jani. 

I understand from it, that this specific iteration of the 8331 model won't be available a few months more.
Therefore after reconsidering the facts...
I realize that what appreciate most of these monitors are their sound/phase qualities for my little room, rather than the (excellent) visual appearance.

Therefore having in mind that this family journey that brings me to Finland could be a one-in-a-lifetime-opportunity,
 Since - with the help of this forum community- It might be possible in this particular occasion to access its street/user price (instead of MSRP) 
that together with the certainty of bringing them physically with me, would allow to take out several middle men from the cost equation 
(high transport fees to my far location, high import taxes, etc.).

So, in light of the official answer I will rephrase the question:
Could someone advice me in how to acquire a pair of 8331 model (black) for a small homestudio placed at a Southamerican music sector  
(hence showroom, demo, used, no-box, cosmetically scratched, etc. are very, very welcomed). 

I will be at Helsinki on monday 19 of june from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM

It took me a few days to realize what I didn't want to see when i firstly received Jani's response above;
No 8331 speakers are going to be available at the signaled Finland trip date...
So, I understand it now, and Ffffs, it was a nice dream - while it lasted -  from a country that has given me too much already. I do use the unique
OTUS Raw controller and its related software, the utterly fantastic space age ONE DJ, both from the former creative EKS rooster.

I remain expectant to what this GENELEC's ONE 8331 model could do for my (small) room monitoring, in terms their single axis drivers' coherent phase
and also by the SAM room correction intelligence included. Therefore I celebrate they are actually coming to existence. 

We'll see if everything needed gels them into reality into my work-flow, whilst unexpected variables keep crossing these projection lines.
Kind Regards GENELEC Team
