Strong business, good friends and happy days in Xiamen!

in Fairs/Events By Jørn Østby

As usual when you attend one of the main stone fairs in the world, like Xiamen Stone Fair, it is not only to discuss business but equally important that you meet a lot of friends.

Lundhs attended the Xiamen Stone Fair for the 5th time as an exhibitor, and every time we leave the fair we feel that it is getting better every year. It is an excellent place to display a new material and there are a lot of foreign buyers that give the latest news about different markets. Business-wise, it seems like Lundhs materials are doing well in most markets and the market strategy with stable pricing and distribution is working well.

Football tournament
Another highlight during the Xiamen Stone Fair is the Lundhs Cup, which is a football tournament between people in the stone business from different countries. During the 2012 Lundhs Cup, there were four teams: Dragons (China), Samba (Brazil), Arirang (Korea) and Vikings (Norway/Lundhs). It was a tight competition where Dragons ended up as the winning team. The Lundhs Cup was arranged on the afternoon on the 8th of March and rounded of with a great dinner with all the teams and friends from the stone business. In 2013 Lundhs Cup will be even bigger and hopefully attract teams from more countries. We hope some of our friends in maybe Turkey, Spain or Italy takes up the challenge and join with a team for the 2013 Lundhs Cup!

See you again next year!
