Geberit offers sanitary products and solutions for the entire building, covering the entire water circuit: from water supply to usage and drainage – and all were on display at Geberit Innovation Days 2021.
“The House of Geberit, a real-life 300m² trade fair booth, is constructed using Geberit’s GIS installation system, which is normally used for building prewalls in bathrooms. The almost transparent walls offer an unbroken view of our front of and behind the wall solutions, allowing participants to imagine the multiple design possibilities of our products. At the same time, experts share our innovations and product updates, and even construction tips,” said Martin Baumüller, Head of Marketing & Brands at the Geberit Group.
Physical Events around North & Southeast Asia
In addition to the worldwide virtual event, exclusive live sessions were conducted in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan over three consecutive days, attracting construction and sanitary professionals from across North & South East Asia.
In total, over 450 Geberit customers and partners around the region attended the physical events, including renowned architects, interior designers, developers, dealers, distributors, building and hotel operators.
Experts prepared presentations and led discussions across nine subject areas covering the latest bathroom innovations – from the pipes and installations behind the wall to the design and hygiene solutions in front of the wall.
“Our first hybrid event, Geberit Innovation Days, was a great success and a new milestone in terms of how we interact with our partners and the industry. From this experience, we strengthened our customer relationships, made new connections, and discovered new ways of presenting Geberit’s innovative solutions. The success of the event shows the ingenuity of the business, our innovation and global teamwork.” Commented Elaine Naveen, Head of Marketing for Geberit North & South East Asia.
