What is The Arch of Europe Convention in Germany?
We’ve been invited to participate in the International Arch of Europe Convention in Frankfurt, Germany! The event celebrates innovators and designers from around the world for their leadership in quality, technology, and excellence.
The two-day Arch of Europe Convention will be held at the end of February. It’s produced by Business Initiative Directions (BID), an organization that provides structure and guidance to help innovators grow their business. Over the past 32 years, BID has provided support for more than 30,000 companies from 180 countries.
Costa Rican Participation: A First?
Based on the lists of winners and attendees posted on their website, it looks like we might be the first from Costa Rica to attend (if we can make it).
As you may know, Custom Furniture Costa Rica is a company committed to the culture of our country. Rather than producing one-size-fits-all furniture, we work directly with customers to create unique designs.
In many cases, this means coming up with creative solutions to help our clients make the most of the small spaces that are common in Costa Rican homes.
Innovation in Costa Rica
To this end, our most innovative space-saving designs to date are our Murphy beds. Based on the overwhelming response we received from a blog we posted about Murphy beds a couple of years ago, we knew there was a market for them here in Costa Rica. However, it wasn’t until 2019 that we hashed out the design and built our first model. The result is a proprietary system that we can truly be proud of. And, most importantly, the customers who have ordered our Murphy beds really love the way they function!
International Recognition for Costa Rica
From the email we received inviting us to the convention:
“Custom Furniture Costa Rica has been invited to receive on March 1, 2020, the Arch of Europe Award in the city of Frankfurt. This award is a recognition of the commitment that – on technology, excellence, innovation and leadership in Quality – Custom Furniture Costa Rica has demonstrated.”
Additionally, our company will become part of an international campaign aimed at promoting ecological business practices and socio-economic impact, among other important issues:
“The theme of this campaign that will be launched in parallel to your participation in the Arch of Europe will correspond to the values, beliefs, and achievements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
Our Search for Sponsors
It would be our great honor to represent Costa Rica at this highly esteemed international convention. However, as a small family business it will not be possible for us to attend without sponsorship.
Time is of the essence as the dates of the convention are quickly approaching and we need to make arrangements. We are seeking sponsors that can cover the cost of:
- Roundtrip Airfare (SJO-FRA)
- Convention Fees
- Hotel Accommodations
If you support Costa Rica’s participation in this international conference and would like to become a sponsor, please email us directly or reach out by telephone at 2265-9353.
