In the next edition of Espacio Cocina SICI (20-23 September 2022) There have already been several firms that have confirmed their presence in Espacio Cocina SICI. A call that opens jointly with the Habitat fair and that already many kitchen furniture manufacturers have given a positive rating, according to the specialized portal Focus Piedra.
This portal has spoken again with several large format manufacturers that have confirmed their presence at SICI, to get your opinion on the new approach to this event:
Eduardo Martínez-Cosentino Ramos, commercial director of Cosentino Iberia: “As an exhibiting company, At Cosentino we consider this change in dates and setting for the Espacio Cocina-SICI contest to be a success. Hábitat Valencia is an event that better responds to our business model and is an event much more akin to our company, clients and collaborators, without forgetting that the type of visitor who comes to Habitat focuses on the search for furniture, and in this sense, the kitchen is an increasingly leading area within the home. Habitat Valencia is also a space that receives a large number of decorators, interior designers or interior architects, essential profiles for our company, especially now that we have just launched C · TOP Design for them, a new inspiration program, community, dissemination and services for interior design professionals. "
For Pablo Chuliá, Marketing Director of I arcing, “Linking an event like SICI with another of the stature of Habitat is a very wise decision regarding the type of public that attends both fairs. While Cevisama goes to a different channel, the ceramic, SICI and Hábitat condense the interest of the same type of professional that, seeking inspiration with new ideas in the decoration sector, can find in Habitat-SICI a much more complete and integrated offer, also including the "cooking world". Furthermore, I believe that the international positioning that Habitat already enjoys can benefit SICI in terms of quantity and quality of the visits received to the kitchen fair, what, definitely, it's good news for a brand like ours. Expectations are high, and this year much more than Valencia is the World Capital of Design 2022 ″.
On the other hand, add that «This merger already occurs in other international competitions such as Salone del Mobile or IMM Cologne, where we have seen the prelude to what can also be a success here ».
Meanwhile, Andreas Manero, marketing manager de Neolith, notes that "From my point of view, the celebration of SICI is two good news: On one side, Being able to celebrate the fair again after the pandemic is great news. The sector needed to get together again and get back to normal. The second is that it matches Habitat. This will be key in the face of the large amount of synergies that exist between the kitchen and furniture industry”.
