Van Dyck attended The Green Building Conference and Exhibition again this year which was held in Sandton. This exhibition saw different companies come together to showcase their products and services and how each is contributing to greener buildings and sustainability in South Africa.
This was an ideal opportunity for Van Dyck to officially launch our new branding and corporate image and the new green and contemporary logo displayed at our stand tied in perfectly with the very purpose of this event. Not only that, our floor was furnished with a customised design of Oxygen carpet tiles, a range that is manufactured from more than 85% post consumer recycled material. We even went a step further by introducing the world’s first ever QR Code carpet tile. QR is short for quick response i.e. it can be read quickly by a cell phone. It is a 2D barcode that can store and digitally present much more data including URL links to websites. Our QR coded carpet tiles displayed at our stand enabled a direct link to Van Dyck’s brand new website, a tool that was used by many of the exhibition visitors.
The topics presented and discussed at the conference were very interesting and at the end of a very exciting first day everyone was invited to a Cocktail Evening that Van Dyck was honoured to sponsor.
Van Dyck remains one of the most active carpet companies in South Africa and the world when it comes to being environmentally friendly. Through our green initiatives we make it possible to contribute to a healthier and more sustainable environment.
This exhibition and Conference was a successful event for us and we most appreciated the warm embrace of our new branding from everyone.
We look forward to being one of the sponsors of this successful event again next year.
