CONTENUR unveils new innovative stand

CONTENUR chose TECMA 2016 as the fair at which to unveil its new display stand in Spain, in line with its new communication strategy and corporate identity, introduced in 2015.

The concept of CONTENUR’s stand revolved around four key areas: Innovation, Sustainability, Quality and Smart Elements. The 200m2 display stood out for its striking design, as well as the way it presented the company’s strategic products in these four different categories. Visitors saw for themselves that the presentation of Contenur’s products goes beyond traditional methods, towards digital and technological interaction. The stand aims for a “Look, Think, Act” approach. In short, it combines products and traditional solutions designed to integrate into the urban environment with an innovative way of using them and Smart systems.

Pioneering solutions

The stand included a dedicated innovation and sustainability area, where in addition to exhibiting its 2,200 and 3,200 litre capacity side loading containers, CONTENUR introduced its cutting-edge RECYCLA system, a new concept in waste management from which information on individual waste segregation can be obtained immediately.

Furthermore, together with Italian counterpart Ecologia Soluzione Ambiente, CONTENUR launched the new bilateral loading system, the only one of its kind on the market. Its polyethylene container was a hit with visitors and their opinions and suggestions will help to improve this solution.

Finally, CONTENUR also opted for a stand which allowed for more direct contact with visitors. With this in mind, a “social area” was created for more relaxed networking, which soon became one of the “go-to” places for all our clients.
