Huge satisfaction expressed by Cefla Finishing following the 3-day event which brought more or less 300 enterprises together under one roof, at the extensive R&D Laboratory at company HQ in Imola.

IMOLA. The seventh edition of Cefla Live, which took place at Cefla Finishing headquarters in Imola between 12 and 14 October, has come to an end with an excellent result. At the close of the third day, the number of registered visitors from around the globe reached 1200, on behalf of approximately 300 companies representing the finishing and surface enhancement sector, from wood to plastics, through glass, fibre cement and on to metallic surfaces. Cefla Live is an exclusive rendezvous organised each year by Cefla Finishing in its large laboratory. Professionals from this business sector can get right up close to the most advanced technologies and witness the best quality results obtained through their implementation, including a preview of as yet unreleased solutions. The event follows a format in which partner companies (inks, paints, spraying equipment, components and software) are invited. They benefit from a small area to exhibit and thus strike up a relationship with customers. The three days turned out to be an opportunity to network and also saw the presence of Cefla Plant Solutions showcasing some fascinating case studies with regard to energy production and recovery. Also present the new company belonging to Cefla, C-LED, with a host of solutions for industrial plants and lighting components for furniture. Jet-Set also participated in Cefla Live following its recent acquisition by Cefla Finishing.

“This year’s event has lived up to our expectations, in line with previous editions.” remarked Alberto Maestri, Cefla Finishing’s Managing Director. “Cefla Live is true-to-life laboratory where we openly share our solutions with our customers and the companies working in collaboration with us. It therefore represents a vital opportunity to put the finishing touches to our innovations, which we will subsequently launch on the market during the coming tradeshows. Let me thank everyone who made this a success, in particular those who visited the event and shared their ideas with us, thus helping us further consolidate our global market leadership in the Finishing industry.”
