Cosentino Celebrates a Successful KBB Show

The world leader in the production and distribution of quartz and other natural stone surfaces, Cosentino is celebrating a successful four days at the KBB show.

The impressive stand attracted in excess of a 1,000 visitors and generated over 400 new leads for the leading worktop supplier.

For the first time ever, the Cosentino stand featured a hospitality bar made from Silestone, where a cocktail was served up every minute for entire four days. The stand also boasted a special VIP lounge for ‘Elite’ kitchen studios and a striking Silestone island with seating in order to encourage visitors to relax whilst observing the stunning products in situ.

Christophe Gontier, MD for Cosentino UK said of the KBB Bimingham show and stand “We had a fantastic time at the KBB show, with lots of positive feedback and enquires. It was great to catch up with existing customers and forge new relationships. The demand for Silestone continues to grow in the UK and the show was a fantastic place to showcase our new Integrity sinks and extensive collection of striking and innovative surfaces to a wide audience.

The Silestone Integrity range of sinks are the first to be made from one piece of Silestone, with no weak areas or joints. They also have all of the benefits of Silestone worksurfaces, including a high resistance to scratch, stain and heat, as well as bacteriostatic protection.

The appearance of Silestone and Cosentino comes on the back of the worldwide producer and distributor of quartz and other natural stone surfaces launching a new loyalty programme for kitchen and bathroom studios, called ‘Elite.’ The programme has been launched to thank the efforts and dedication of studios who have supported Cosentino and its brands over the last 20 years. The aim of ‘Elite’ is to provide studios with support, raise awareness and increase demand.

When a studio becomes ‘Elite’ they will receive a complete welcome pack, which includes an accreditation plaque and a USB stick with Cosentino resources, including the Silestone advertising campaign and advert.

Silestone is a choice for many kitchen studios and German Kitchens UK designer Shane Swift had this to say about Häcker, german made kitchens and Silestone making the perfect kitchen partnership

"Our German kitchens using Silestone quartz worktops usually retail at an average of between £12,000 to £15,000, and although as designers we have thousands of different styles to choose from to make our kitchens entirely bespoke to our customers personal requirements, we are seeing a trend for High Gloss cabinetry combined with the sleekness of Silestone working really well in delivering the perfect modern kitchen for both budget, design preferences and kitchen layout. Although Häcker and Cosentino are two seperate suppliers of ours, they work tremendously together."
