Cosentino Middle East has announced the launch of Cosentino e-Events – an online events platform aimed at connecting practitioners in the design industry. Under this initiative, Cosentino Middle East plans to host Lunch n’ Learns, panel discussions, case study presentations, and fun knowledge sharing sessions that will benefit the industry and boost camaraderie. Hosted on Microsoft teams, the sessions will be live and also allow guests to interact with the featured speakers and panelists.

In the wake of the global COVID-19 crisis, Cosentino City Dubai, the company’s hub at Dubai Design District (d3), proactively took a step earlier this month to temporarily close its doors. Since its opening in late 2017, Cosentino City Dubai had grown to establish itself as a hotspot for designers to learn, exchange ideas and network. The showroom was also known to host regular weekly events, attracting professionals as varied as architects, interior designers, consultants, fabricators and kitchen, and bathroom retailers.

Talking about the initiative, Miriam Llano, Middle East marketing manager said: “In these times of social distancing, we have had to temporarily close our doors and pause all our events that used to hugely benefit the design community. Since then we have been thinking about ways to keep the community connected. The idea behind launching Cosentino e-Events is to bring the events to wherever the designers are – in the comfort of their homes or workplaces. We are committed to our role as a catalyst for innovation, growth and meaningful interactions in the industry”
