Cosentino sponsored the 2019 General Assembly of the European Council of Interior Architects (ECIA), held from 13 to 15 September in Bilbao.
The capital city of the Biscay region hosted this event and welcomed representatives from the European countries that form part of the ECIA, including the General Council of Official Associations of Interior Designers in Spain.
In line with its mission to "work for professions and education", the aim of this event is to annually bring together the countries that form part of the ECIA in an assembly, with a view to discussing the year's achievements, sharing future projects, as well as other projects of interest, with the attendees, and sharing ideas about the current situation of the industry in Europe. Each year, a different country hosts the Assembly, giving all its members the opportunity to learn how the various organisations throughout Europe work.
Teresa Casas, chair of the General Council of Interior Designers in Spain and member of the ECIA board, said: "When Spain was chosen as the location for the General Assembly of the ECIA, we then had to decide who would be our national partner. Cosentino, as a national company with a strong European and global presence, met all the criteria. Its prestigious and renowned professional experience, support to students and schools in this field with initiatives such as the Cosentino Design Challenge, and its values of sustainability, quality, drive to do things right together with a professional attitude are akin to our own values."Isabel Martínez-Cosentino Ramos, head of Cosentino City Barcelona, which will open to the public in 2020, gave a presentation focused on the company to all the attendees at the Assembly.
