BIG 5 a big success for LATICRETE
The Big 5 attracts construction industry professional from across the Middle East and throughout the region. New show features were recently introduced including over 130 free to attend educational seminars, The Green Build Congress and four new dedicated product sectors.
With a Laticrete factory located in the UAE, attending and displaying at this show is an important part of our efforts in this region. Click here for more information on Laticrete in this part of the world.
Unlike many other international markets, construction in the Middle East continues to grow, offering huge potential to international exhibitors who are looking develop their business and The Big 5 is the perfect place to cultivate new opportunities in the region.
For 2012 the exhibition continued to focus on product innovation and green technologies and provide valuable content that attracted more attendees to the event.

Tiled Swimming Pools
All leveling / truing up of substrates must be performed prior to the installation of Laticrete waterproofing membranes.
The waterproofing membrane must be installed over all leveling mortars in these applications. Laticrete waterproofing membranes perform best when installed directly under the tiled finish layer.
See our Architectural detail P-601 above which indicates the proper sequence of installation.
This proper sequence of installation appears in our waterproofing membrane product data sheets.
For additional technical information or specifications for your tiled pool project click here to contact Laticrete Technical support.

I have to apologize for letting my Thank You lapse for so long. You sent me a fantastic Laticrete Shirt - black, golf shirt with collar. Wow, now that's a fancy one. I wear that one when meeting clients and when shopping for supplies (when I'm not dressed like a working stiff). Anyway you sent one of those and a T-shirt and I really appreciate it.
You are a marketing expert. And you're a great part of the best thinset / grout / pan / drain / etc. manufacturer out there for us. I appreciate all you do individually and as part of that great company.
Keep up the great work and we'll keep specifying Laticrete-ONLY on our projects.

So I asked him if I could use his words on my Blog. His reply:
You are hereby authorized to use my comments, gestures, and good will to your best use.
I'm proud to stand up and be counted for supporting the best things in life. And Laticrete is at the top.
Hey, you ever watched Oprah? At Christmas time she gave her audiences a whole bunch of "Oprah's Favorite Things." If she ever does that again wouldn't it be great to see alla those housewives walk out with a bucket of Hydroban under their arm? ;-)

Laticrete Presents Lilian Broca
Lilian Broca (Canada) was selected as one of the 8 artists in the Exhibition by Steinbaum who said: “As a feminist, it was particularly easy for me to relate to her work that deals with women in society both historically and currently.”
Subsequently, both a book and a documentary on the artist and her Queen Esther series have been released. Click here to view the in-depth six page article showcasing Broca’s award winning work.
