WHAT ARE THE NEW BRANDS THAT YOU ARE PRO­MOT­ING?

Re­narte is proud to an­nounce the ex­clu­sive part­ner­ship with Wedge­wood and Waterford in UAE and Oman.

WHAT MAKES EACH OF THESE BRANDS SO UNIQUE?

Each of them are for­mi­da­ble in their own right, hav­ing stood the test of time, their strength & pres­ence on the re­tail seg­ment adds to their brand value. Apart from that Wedg­wood Bone china has a unique abil­ity to come up with be­spoke de­signs very quickly and with plenty of op­tions what­ever be the con­cept.

WHAT ARE THE CUR­RENT TRENDS IN THE SEC­TOR AND HOW IS RE­NARTE AT THE FORE­FRONT OF THOSE TRENDS?

We have no­ticed a new con­scious­ness from buy­ers nowa­days, de­sign and ori­en­ta­tion has taken the first place wherein price is still a deter­rent fac­tor on the sec­ond. To bal­ance the two is some­thing which re­quires con­stant mar­ket re­search and mak­ing those prod­ucts more ac­ces­si­ble.

With tech­nol­ogy at the fore­front, we no­ticed buy­ers tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from all over the world for de­sign us­ing mo­bile or desk­top plat­form, we have re­cently up­graded our web­site to make it more user friendly and ac­ces­si­ble to our clien­tele. We work with nu­mer­ous brands and some­times not all get prod­ucts get show­cased the way they should, we hope to over­come that con­tin­u­ously up­grad­ing our prod­uct list to make this fea­ture eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to all our clients.

HOW DO YOU SEE THE NEXT 12-18 MONTHS PLAY­ING OUT FOR RE­NARTE IN THIS RE­GION?

There are a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties on the anvil, we see our­selves strength­en­ing our po­si­tion by care­ful se­lect­ing the part­ners we work with. We see a huge push to­wards com­ple­tion of projects and the ar­rival of more & more new restau­rant con­cepts. How­ever, one must be pru­dent while work­ing with pre­vi­ously un­known op­er­a­tors as there is a risk of bad debt.

HOW DOES THE MAR­KET HERE IN THE GCC DIF­FER FROM OTH­ERS ACROSS THE GLOBE?

From my per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence over 20 years in the sup­ply busi­ness, this mar­ket doesn’t stop what­ever the global sen­ti­ment, it is buoy­ant, re­silient and ever op­ti­mistic, this is what dif­fer­en­ti­ates the GCC from other mar­kets across the globe.
