The visitors at the BAU 2009 have chosen their favourite ZOOM decor. EGGER drew the winner for a weekend in Kitzbühel amongst all the participants in the survey.

All in all, nearly 800 trade show visitors took part in the EGGER contest at the BAU and selected their favourite decor. The lucky winner is Christian Santner from the cabinetmaker's workshop Modl in Neumarkt near Waller Lake in Austria. He can happily look forward to an exclusive weekend in Kitzbühel in conjunction with a plant tour at EGGER in St. Johann in Tyrol.

Using a decor wheel on which all new ZOOM decors are represented, the visitors to the EGGER trade show stand selected the decor that they found the most attractive. A winner for the weekend stay was drawn from the roughly 800 participants in the contest. The winner was the cabinetmaker's workshop Modl from Neumarkt near to Waller Lake in Austria, and on 10th March 2009 EGGER sales representative Gerald Peterseil personally presented them a special gift voucher for two people for two nights at the Stanglwirt in Going near Kitzbühel, including an exclusive EGGER plant tour. The gift voucher was made of a 420 x 594 mm large piece of chipboard in the decor Dark Cordoba Olive, and will remain a souvenir for the winner from EGGER and the BAU 2009. “It is a great pleasure for me that one of our loyal customers will benefit from this relaxing weekend in Kitzbühel and will visit us here in Tyrol. In addition, our winner had also voted for the winning decor as being his favourite“, pointed out Gerald Peterseil.


In accordance with their status as a full-range supplier, at this year's BAU apart from the complete product range EGGER also presented the extension of the ZOOM Collection that was first introduced two years ago. The ten new decors have a captivating, authentic visual appearance and new surface textures, as well as through innovative core materials. Following the successful survey amongst the trade show visitors, the decor Dark Cordoba Olive proved to be the most popular decor amongst the innovations with nearly 35 % of the votes. The winning decor is supplied with the surface texture ST9, and above all due to its warm appearance and the matching smooth surface was found to be the most appealing to the trade show visitors.

To reproduce the feel of the decors in an authentic way and to show the ideal combination ability of all decors, EGGER has presented a special marketing tool for the ZOOM update. The ZOOM decor combination wheel not only displays all the new decors with real laminate samples, but also offers the possibility of combining the six wood reproductions with the four uni colours. “With the help of this tool we can give the customers and interested parties the opportunity to take a closer look at our decor innovations. The decor and colour combinations are matched together according to our motto ’Natural Grey‘ and place no limits on creativity“, explains Michael-Bernd Wehmeyer, Director Marketing Wood Materials EGGER Group, about the idea behind the decor wheel.
