Trainees at KBB National Training Group and Webs Furniture Training will now be educated in the use of Virtual Worlds Professional 3D CAD software as part of their NVQ courses, both for design and merchandising purposes.
Renée Mascari, chief executive of NTG, said: “It is vital that new entrants into the industry are equipped with the skills to use the latest technology and we are hugely grateful for Virtual Worlds’ support.”
Mike Vinten, sales director at Virtual Worlds, commented: “The training and facilities provided to apprentices at NTG and Webs is very impressive and Virtual Worlds is pleased to provide apprentices in the industry access to the latest CAD, to help them develop the necessary skill-set to succeed”.
Virtual Worlds reported a hectic kbb Ldn show with not only kitchen and bathroom retailers, but architects and designers also queuing up to see demonstrations of Virtual Worlds Professional 5.8.3 – the company’s latest 3D interactive CAD software for the KBB sector.
“It was apparent that more and more architects and interior designers are embracing kitchens and bathrooms in their plans and were on our stand looking for a fast but sophisticated, real-life design package, compatible with AutoCAD. Many were attracted to Virtual World’s high calibre visuals, images and unique customer fly-throughs, which are all strong selling tools, when it comes to booking business”, reported Mike Vinten, Sales & Marketing Director at Virtual Worlds.
The company has seen its sales of licenses increase by nearly 50% in the last 12 months, attributed in part to the scope of the software. “It was noticeable just how many visitors were looking for an all singing and dancing CAD package and loved the fact they could use Virtual Worlds to not only design a high-tech kitchen or bathroom, but also office, breakfast areas and other living spaces”, commented Vinten.
Virtual Worlds was particularly pleased with the number of kitchen designers visiting the stand, impressed by the re-vamped kitchen catalogue section, which now encompass a string of leading brands including JJO, Symphony and Omega, and a strong generic section for bespoke work.
