Cevisama 2016 From the Perspective of Pamesa
Tile Outlets of America features many items from Pamesa Spain and invited William Bannantine, Pamesa representative, to share with us a first-hand view of their 6,000 sf booth, product highlights and tile trends from the Cevisama show held in Valencia, Spain.
Pamesa is very involved in the community and welcomed many local celebrities and important guests to join them at their booth.
The VILLAREAL professional soccer team (currently in 4th place (of 20 teams) in arguably the world’s finest professional soccer league) made its way to see PAMESA.
The team helped Pamesa demonstrate the Pamesa Cube.
The Pamesa Cube is one of three elements from the newly launched Pamesa Virtual Xperience, a revolutionary approach to the tile purchase process:
Interactive 360º Video can be visualised on any device (computer, tablet or mobile). When users put on their Cardboard glasses, they enter into an immersive experience that allows them to move around and explore the contents of a virtual environment as though they were physically present. This interactive video can also be seen at www.pamesavx.com and attracted the attention not only of Pamesa’s customers, collaborators and promoters but also of the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, who showed great interest in the innovation on the opening day of Cevisama.
Pamesa Cube is an immersive cube that shows the user different virtual reality environments and projects them in real size. With the cube clients can experiment to create different decorative styles using Pamesa’s materials. These environments are rendered in actual size and can be personalised for each country, and even for each user.
Pamesa Touch interactive Videowall, a new way of demonstrating Pamesa’s collections, with high-resolution screens providing a better viewing experience and the ability to incorporate new collections immediately at all sales points. Its additional advantages are that the user’s experience can be maximised by learning about the client’s interests (analysing where they interact most) and by seeing how the user feels about what he or she is looking at on the screen using the latest ‘facereading’ tools.
Valencia's professional basketball team, undisputed leader with a record of 18 wins and 1 loss, “raised the average height” on the PAMESA stand for awhile.
Five time world champion triathlete Javier Gomez Noya, who enjoys PAMESA sponsorship, was not able to make it for Cevisama 2016 although he has in the past. He is a favorite for gold in Rio.
As you see from the images above, the tile business isn’t always about tile. Pamesa gets very involved in the sports of its country.
