Barcelona, May 15 – The Sorigué Group will be participating at the 21st edition of the Barcelona Building Construmat trade show with a 128-m2 booth located in the center of pavilion 2 of the Fira Barcelona Gran Via venue. The Lleida-based company will use this space to present a selection of start-ups that have responded to the two challenges presented through theSorigué Challenge , a platform promoted by the group's Innovation Department that seeks to boost talent and foster open innovation, in other words, cooperation and knowledge exchange between the organization and external entities to respond to the challenges of the sector.
The Group, chaired by Ana Vallés, who this year again served as Chairwoman of the Barcelona Building Construmat Organizing Committee, as she did for the 2017 edition, has also prepared its own program of conferences that adds to the offer of conferences and meeting spaces offered by the trade show, at the hands of various experts who will present proposals regarding the circular economy, urban development, sustainable construction and digital transformation.
Sorigué’s booth will also feature a prominent space for the products developed and marketed by its Materials division, especially through its aggregates, prefabricated concrete and asphalts business lines, which will also be presenting its entire range of sidewalk repair solutions this year. Its dedication to innovation has allowed the company to develop products with high-added value and to become a pioneer in the development and application of environmentally sustainable methods and practices.
As part of Sorigué Challenge, four international start-ups have been selected that seek to respond to the current challenges of the sector through efficiency, sustainability and the circular economy. These start-ups will present their proposals to the Sorigué team and the general public at the stand during the trade show.
