PORCELANOSA Group keeps on expanding all over the world, last week it was the time for two new spaces of the brand in the cities of Dubai and Yangon.
On Thursday February 28 took place the opening ceremony of the new Porcelanosa store in Dubai, together with the partner of the Spanish brand in the city, Amodoria Building Materials Trading. Dubai is the capital of Dubai’s emirate, one of the seven United Arab Emirates, and is the country’s largest city and main port. The new space is located on Shk Zayed Road, the main road linking the emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The event, which had a marked Spanish flavor thanks to the performance of Andalusian group Porvenir, had the presence of the Executive Vice President of Porcelanosa, Silvestre Segarra, who hosted and received visits from the Spanish ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, Antonio Alvarez Barthe and the son of the Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohamed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum.
The city of Yangon hosted the second of the openings on the Asian continent last March 2. Yangon is the largest city in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, with more than five and a half million inhabitants. Kabaraye Pagoda Road, the main commercial street of the city, hosts the first Porcelanosa showroom in the country, a modern building of more than 300 square meters. The day began with the blessing of the shop by Buddhist monks, the country’s main religion, and a series of distinguished visits such as the Spanish ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand, Emilio de Miguel Calabia and the local celebrities May Myat Noe, Schew Eain Si and Ariel Thuta, received by Silvestre Segarra. The event ended with a gala dinner in the halls of the hotel Meliá Yangon, presided by the Chief Minister of Yangon, Phyi Min Thein and entertained by the group Porvenir.
