RAK Ceramics, the world's largest ceramic tiles & bathware manufacturing company, has announced that it has launched the “Elena” bathware suite, a new bathware collection that caters to the European market, during its successful participation at the recently concluded CERSAIE – International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings 2011, in Bologna, Italy. RAK Ceramics built a dedicated 100-square meter stand for its exclusive bathware collection, which generated an overwhelming response from target audiences across Europe, resulting in positive response from clients and distributors.
RAK Ceramics, which booked a total of 400 square meters of exhibition space, also constructed a separate and equally luxurious 100-sqm stand using tiles from its “Elegance Ceramics” collection, to showcase its ceramic tile designs that likewise attracted huge crowds during the exhibition. With the launch of the Elena Bathware Sweet collection, RAK Ceramics has further expanded its specialised product range developed exclusively for the European market. The company previously launched its “Opulence” collection earlier this year also in Europe. The Elegance range of products includes Impero, Joyful, Hilow, Metal Wood and Vibe amongst the latest vibrant tile designs which were launched at Cersaie catering to the European market.
Dr. Khater Massaad, CEO, RAK Ceramics, said: “RAK Ceramics has prepared extensively to deliver a truly inspirational presentation of our latest tile collections and designs during the CERSAIE exhibition. The launch of the new bathware collection was a major highlight that helped generate greater interest from existing and potential customers in Europe. The huge visitor turnout has certainly allowed us to easily exceed our sales targets during the event. On the other hand, we were also able to generate several new business leads, which will be crucial as we further expand our presence across key market segments in Europe.”
