The Cosentino Group Asia-Pacific Distributors Convention Returns to Almería
April 24, 2018
From 22-25 April, the Cosentino Group is holding its annual Distributors Convention for the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). After hosting the event in Carins, north-eastern Australia in 2017, the Cosentino APAC Convention is returning to Almería, Spain in 2018.
This year, the ‘APAC Annual Meeting’ is bringing together nearly 60 managers and businesspeople from Cosentino’s main clients and distributors, coming from 12 countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Malaysia, Taiwan, the Maldives, Singapore and Iran, among others.
Cosentino’s central facilities in Cantoria (Almeria, Spain) will serve as the main stage for this event, which yesterday featured various product and strategy presentations, as well as a tour of the Industrial Park and the Mojacar Parador, where the attendees are staying and where various business meetings are being held today. The Convention will also extend to Madrid tomorrow, where the multinational’s distributors will enjoy a guided tour of the Spanish capital, as well as a private event at the Cosentino City Madrid.
This annual meeting demonstrates the importance of this constantly growing market, where Cosentino’s own presence is continually increasing. For example, in the Oceania region, the company currently has seven Cosentino Centres (six in Australia and one in New Zealand), as well as Cosentino’s very first City in the country, located in Sydney and the opening of the only Cosentino Hub outside the USA, which is also located in the city of Sydney.
In Asia, Cosentino has continually pursued a strategy of proprietary implantation over the last few years. It has now achieved a significant presence, above all through its HQ in Singapore. Since last year, the island nation has been home to a spectacular Centre, which plays the role of major logistics warehouse and central Cosentino headquarters for all of Asia as well as another first for the Spanish multinational, a City showroom located at the heart of Singapore, as well as a logistical operator in Japan and the ‘City Associated’ of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In the words of Francisco Martínez-Cosentino, President of Cosentino Group, “It is a pleasure to once again welcome our friends from Asia and Oceania to our home, with more countries represented than ever. The fact that our headquarters is once again hosting this Convention demonstrates the importance we place on this region, with great potential for growth in the coming years; it is also the best way to show our partners important new products and innovations in manufacturing, safety, the environment and the digital transformation that we are currently undertaking.“
