Marina targets Gulf architects and designers
Exotic home interiors company Marina is now targeting architects and interior design companies, according to the executive director of Marina Gulf Trading, Khurshid Vakil.
Vakil revealed his company’s ambitions at last night’s Commercial Interior Design Awards at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, in which Marina was the Platinum sponsor of the event.
He commented: “The fact that we are Platinum sponsors of the Commercial Interior Design Awards is only the beginning. We want to convey the message to participants and consumers of the magazine. The response we have received from consumers has led us to believe it will be the same from architects and designers.”
In addition to its overall sponsorship of the awards, Marina sponsored two individual categories: Lifetime Achievement and Best Residential. Regarding the latter award, Vakil commented: “We are primarily a home interior company, so the residential category was a good fit for us.”
He added: “We at Marina believe, that due to our many years’ of experience in the US market and the Gulf in general, we have what it takes. We represent the best quality to price ratio. Marina has always tried to be distinct, and the fusion of styles is what differentiates us.”
