Positive meetings in Miami with architects from the USA and Canada
With its on-trend products and innovative technical solutions, the Fincibec Group has chosen Miami (Florida, USA) to present the many new items in its portfolio to the busiest architecture firms in North America. On 6 December, a workshop organised by ICE and Ceramics of Italy attracted numerous design professionals in the period in which the city was heavily frequented by art, architecture and design enthusiasts for Art Basel 2018. The event aroused the interest of prestigious firms in both the USA and Canada who are interested in learning more about the new possibilities offered by Italian-made ceramics, and was personally managed by Fincibec USA staff.

On Thursday 27 and Friday 28 September on stand …, hall 20 at the BolognaFiere exhibition centre, Naxos consultants will be on hand to offer advice on personalisation and how to choose tiles for any domestic space.

The Fincibec Group 2018 Meeting was held on 28 May, attended as always by all company members, to provide an update of the situation and present projects for the future. Preceded by an analysis of the business scenario on the global ceramic tiles market, the meeting examined Fincibec investments in recent years and the opportunities they have opened up.
The start-up of slab production using the innovative Continua+ technology expands the ability to respond to market requirements and meets the growing demand for large formats and extra-thick solutions. New technologies are now in operation at Fincibec’s increasingly efficient plants to support the aesthetic research and creativity of the three group companies – Monocibec, Century and Naxos – and underpin their constant commitment to customers, reflected today in new solutions developed specifically for slab handling, laying and machining.
In the elegant setting of Palazzo De’ Toschi in the historic centre of Bologna, Fincibec honoured the winners of the Quinquennial Tile Award 2016. An evening dedicated to grand architecture, an occasion on which to celebrate creativity expressed through ceramics, a sure-fire event for the great Fincibec family.
Fincibec and Assoposa met for a training day dedicated to the sales force, focused on installation methods of the most innovative ceramic materials. The ceramic producer has entrusted the tile installation company to examine the details and characteristics connected with the laying of large formats and slabs of 20 mm thickness – essential information for the sales force in order to provide the proper suggestions of use, and to illustrate all of the possibilities and potential of these products.
Assoposa focuses specifically on the training of floor tiling installers, and issues official certification to professionals with the necessary skills to operate in a sector that requires the abilities of highly qualified personnel. The day of Friday, March 4th was separated into a theory session dedicated to the basics and to updates in laws and regulations, and into interesting practical demonstrations thanks to the set-up of a job site in one of the Fincibec sites. The Assoposa trainers supplied practical demonstrations of the laying of large paving slabs and trim, and of the laying of thick pavements, also for use in urban furnishings.
Among the docents of the Fincibec training day have been the President of Assoposa and owner of Colombo Giacomo di Paolo and Luigi SRL in Sirtori (Lecco), Paolo Colombo, and master floor layer Massimo Manzotti of Gattatico (Reggio Emilia). The organization of the event has been favored by the coordination of Francesco Bergomi, manager of Confidustria Ceramica, who focuses on training and security.
Overlooking Piazza Maggiore, right next to the famous Neptune fountain, the Salaborsa of Bologna hosted the third edition of Quinquennial Tile Award of Fincibec Group. In keeping with the tradition, this symbolic setting hosts the most important and comprehensive international event dedicated to the award for the best creative use of ceramic materials in architecture. An exciting evening for the 450 guests who had the opportunity to attend the award ceremony under the vaults of the Auditorium Enzo Biagi and enjoy the entertaining show held in the impressive, marvellously lighted, covered square. Salaborsa is a historical place that can be acknowledged by every visitor just looking at archaeological excavations visible beneath the glass floor. A place able to reinvent itself and open to more and different events, while preserving its role of vital center of the city of Bologna. A versatile and dynamic space, just like the ceramic material that Fincibec has been offering to the market for over 50 years, and that will also be the star of the fourth edition of Quinquennial Tile Award. Actually, the new edition of the award has already begun, and candidates can submit their application by March 31st, 2016 directly on the website www.tileaward.it.
