fotoPARQUET


SdP_fotoPARQUET_BANNER_3

This year, the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers (ANFP) has organised a photography competition to promote, exhibit and defend authentic wooden floors.

fotoPARQUET aims to ensure that consumers can DISTINGUISH and VALUE authentic wooden flooring and hence counter the influence of wood imitation ceramic, vinyl or synthetic floors in the market.

fotoPARQUET is the continuation of the “Suelos de Película” (Film Floors) video competition which was successfully held by the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers two years ago in conjunction with the European Federation of the Parquet Industry (FEP).

ANFP has received over two hundred photos, of which it has made a pre-selection of fifty images and the jury will select the best two from these.

“The aim of the competition is to remind consumers that a wooden floor at home, at work or in public buildings is the most ecological, healthy, profitable and lasting option”, points out the project coordinator, Angela Herranz.

“Compared with wood imitation flooring that systematically confuses consumers, we want to reach out to everybody and let them know that only AUTHENTIC WOOD is WOOD. Everything else is another thing”, concludes Javier Hervás, President of the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers (ANFP).

2014 edition:

Egurtek fulfils its three-fold objective of raising awareness, establishing and promoting businesses.

Over the two-day period, experts and leading companies of the timber industry shared their knowledge, experiences and passions of a constantly innovating environment. To raise awareness of the need for a material that is sustainable and beneficial to the environmental balance, and to inform the technicians of its potential for application in construction and restoration jobs in order to boost trade were the Forum’s main objectives. More than 1,000 professionals participated in EGURTEK, now in its fifth year, which incorporated new spaces for learning and for contact between industry players.
