Cosentino, Sponsor and Official Worktop Partner for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017
March 11, 2017
For the seventh year in a row, the global leader in the production and distribution of surfaces for the world of architecture and design, the Cosentino Group is partnering with The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, one of the most important international events held in the world of premium dining. The Spanish company, through its renowned Silestone® and Dekton® brands, will be the official sponsor for worktops for the event and will be sponsoring the Sustainable Restaurant Award.*
For the first time, the prestigious awards will be held in Australia. On the 5 April the historic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne will be the venue for the gastronomy event of the year, which is bringing together the world’s most important and influential chefs, gastronomy sector professionals, major media companies and international influencers. Melbourne is a very important location for Cosentino, with two Cosentino Centres in this city alone, which together with those in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth complete the company’s strong and growing presence in Australia and New Zealand.
Moreover, the collaboration enhances activity surrounding the current Silestone® “Tops on Top” campaign, which links the brand with leaders in areas such as sport, culture, fashion, architecture and, in this case, gastronomy.
Santiago Alfonso, Marketing and Communications Director for the Cosentino Group says, “For another year we are proud to be a part of this event in world class fine dining. Our aim with products like Dekton® and Silestone® is to remain at the forefront in our sector, which is why providing worktops for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants showcases and reasserts our leadership in these products in the world of international gastronomy. Mention should also be made of the fact that several of the most important chefs and restaurants in the world, many present on this list, trust in our materials for their professional kitchens.”
