Finlay celebrates major milestone at World Dealer Conference

Barcelona was the backdrop as Finlay welcomed 200 representatives from across the globe for its World Dealer Conference.  

Finlay brought together guests from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and North and South America to celebrate the company’s 65th anniversary in style.  

Finlay business line director Matt Dickson said the celebration was a key marker of the company’s enduring reputation within the industry.  

“A pivotal focus of this year’s conference was to reinforce the family mentality that has been at the heart of Finlay throughout our 65-year history,” he said.  

“Finlay is more than just a name or a logo; it’s a symbol of excellence, innovation, and integrity. It represents the hard work and steady commitment of our team and our distributors around the world. 

“It’s a legacy that we’ve built together, one machine at a time and one satisfied customer at a time.” 

A captivating keynote address by Al Peasland, formerly Head of Technical and Innovation Partnerships at F1 Williams Racing and Red Bull Racing, and formerly responsible for the fastest pit change ever. 

The second night of the conference was an awards gala dinner to celebrate achievements of the Finlay global distribution network.  

The special evening took place at the La Llotja de Mar, a stunning 8th century building that is considered one of the finest neoclassical buildings in Barcelona.  

As the conference ended on the third evening, guests enjoyed a memorable experience with catamaran tours along the picturesque Barcelona coastline at sunset. 

“Just as important as our strong history, strong future, is strong relationships between our distribution network and our engineering, production, and support teams at our manufacturing facility,” he said. 

“Sustaining these is integral to success. Our World Dealer Conference not only celebrated our storied past but also fostered a sense of togetherness and mutual growth, laying the foundation for a bright and innovative future ahead.”
