BEST show at Eurocucina – Milan April 2010
Anyone associated with the kitchen and appliance industry will be well aware that the biennial Eurocucina is THE kitchen show to see.
BEST were amongst the top European kitchen and appliance brands to help draw the extensive international crowds. The impressive BEST stand showcased the contemporary and impactful hood range currently available in the UK from Britannia, as well as introducing unique concept cooker hoods for 2011. Particular interest was given to the straight clean lines of the landscape extractors Azimuth and Kite as well as the minimalist island hood Spark. John Leckey, Sales Director of Bodel Distributors Ltd, Ireland commented, “ We are very pleased this range of hoods has been made available to the Irish market, and are excited by the response we have had to these contemporary, design-led hoods. The combination of uniqueness, high quality and competitive pricing is exactly what’s required.”
He continued, “Despite the slow economy, the show proved to be very busy and this reflects the interest the industry has in trying to ring the changes and create a new buzz in the showrooms. The show was certainly good, but the cancellation of many flights due to the ash cloud, did affect the general mood.”
John and his team travelled back to Ireland over land and by sea. Britannia staff, who were also amongst the unlucky stranded travellers, were rescued by Britannia’s intrepid Operations Director, Richard, who literally drove across Europe to rescue them. Richard really enjoyed this logistical challenge! He also heads up the after sales service team, proving that you are clearly in good hands with Britannia!
