Co156 winning to the 2018 Doors Award

The CoMETA Door achieves the 2nd place

There was a lot of wait and curiosity about the first Doors and Windows Award proposed by the editorial staff of Nuova Finestra, ShowRoom Porte&Finestre e Winners have been nominated on 26th November at the end of the event Doors And Windows Forum, in Bologna. The competition provided for three particular categories: windows, entrance doors and inner doors that readers of paper and web magazines could vote on the website depending on criteria such as technology, performances and design.

The Door Co156 (Armored Emergency Exit) produced by CoMETA obtained the 2nd place in the category “Entrance doors”.

The Doors and Windows Award had an unexpected success. The competition, after some days of uncertainty, was immediately liked by a lot of people. Many companies carried out some digital marketing strategies to persuade customers and suppliers to vote, in some cases involving employees too. It is the first year of the Award, the formula works well and it will be absolutely proposed again in the next years, also because it has the merit to highlight companies that aim for innovation, invest a lot in research & development but which often remain unknown to most people. “It is a well-thought contest which has a great potential” maintains Simone Serni, Corporate Brand Manager of CoMETA, “we were already proud that our Door Co156 had been chosen by the newspapers to participate In the contest, but we didn’t expect to step to the podium, this 2nd place for us is a great victory that rewards us for our hard work, thank you!”.

The delivery of certificates and awards was done by Olga Munini from the editorial staff of Showroom e Nuova Finestra. At the first edition of the Doors and Windows Award it has been an event into the event, set in the Extra Doors and Windows Forum, thought so as to highlight the products hold to be worthy of attention.

How was born the idea of the Doors and Windows Award

The idea arose from the editorial staff of Every year there are many products which are shown and described online, which cause the interest of digital readers but that then are gradually forgotten due to the publication of new articles, products and in-depth analysis. Internet is wonderful because it gathers all that it is said and shown, but at the same time it has a mechanism a bit cynical because a product appeared some months ago tends to have less and less exposure, hidden and outdone by thousands of new webpages.

It is instead important to give space to companies that give themselves a challenge and aim to investments in Research and Development, which from year to year make enormous efforts to obtain better and better products and that are part of the true lifeblood of Made in Italy. We are the envy of the whole world.

The Idea of the Academy Award was born to reward the best but also to highlight the hard work of dozens of top companies in the sector of doors and windows that every year aim to surprise their customers by creating increasingly cutting-edge products, improving on various aspects: technology, design, performances.
