The sister company of FinsaHome, Finsa UK, has recently exhibited at two London Design Shows.
Finsa UK were first at Architect@work in January which took place at the Olympia, Kensington 20-21 January. More recently they showcased products at the Surface Design Show which was held at the Business Design Centre, Islington 10-12 February.
Both shows were a great opportunity for Finsa UK to mix with the architect and design communities, and to display innovative products.
We’re all pretty familiar with New Year’s resolutions, usually due to the fact that by the middle of January most of us have completely given up on them.
But how about this year you make a few pledges when it comes to your home?
Losing weight, getting fit or looking for a new job might make you feel better about yourself, but a few simple changes around the home can make a massive difference and even save you money.
So here are 10 domestic resolutions you might want to sign-up to in 2015, and it’s entirely up to you if you embrace all of them or just a few – you’re only cheating yourself!
This month, Finsa UK and Finsa Home hosted the annual Finsa Group International Convention at Inglewood Manor on the Wirral.
Finsa, which has its UK headquarters in Birkenhead, welcomed its top management from Spain, which included Tito Garcia, Finsa’s CEO, as well as delegates comprising of business clients, staff and overseas management and key local business figures.
The event was supported and assisted by the Wirral Chamber of Commerce. Patsy Crocker, of the Wirral Chamber, gave delegates an update about initiatives and business support available, and the way in which Wirral will be developing as a location business over the coming years.
“Wirral Chamber of Commerce was delighted to be invited to play a role in this important event,” she said.
Dublin was home to the Architecture Expo last month, an event for the construction and architecture industry across Ireland.
And this year’s show, which was held on the 12th and 13th of October, was so popular it even managed to double its size since from when it was first held two years ago.
One event of note was Compacmel Plus, a wood solution especially designed for highly humid indoor environments or applications that require high strength, being awarded the prize for the best construction material for indoor use.
Compacmel Plus is a wood solution we at FINSA use in many of our products and to find out more about this product, just click here.
Having recently attended the Merseyside Landlord Show, Finsa was able to take advantage of the presentation and advice on show from Upad – a self-service letting agency.
Within their presentation, Upad highlighted the key areas to look out for when advertising a property online and how to find the right tenant for your home.
The Merseyside Landlord’s Show took place last Saturday with hundreds of property owners and investors visiting the exhibition at the Liverpool Echo Arena on a beautiful sunny day on the banks of the river Mersey.
Landlords had the opportunity to attend seminars on topics such as: ‘Advertising your property on-line’, ‘Evicting problematic tenants’, ‘How to raise additional finance to grow your property portfolio’, and ‘Energy Efficiency.’
At the event Finsahome showcased their extensive range of kitchens with all the exclusive trade benefits available to kitchen fitters and landlords.
Finsa UK recently visited the Grand Designs Live Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham as followers of the popular TV show looked for a little inspiration when it came to their own big design ideas.
