According to Jim Belilove, President/Founder of Creative Edge Master Shop, “This medallion will provide an enduring signature space for the Bellagio, showing off the elegance of marble and its combination with other architectural metals. Right after it was unveiled, we were told the medallion’s beauty and workmanship was nothing less than “Renaissance quality!”

Todd Robinson, Director of Operations at Superior Tile & Stone commented, “It was an honor to be chosen to work on such a prestigious installation. The waterjet cut-and-fabricated medallion was not only beyond beautiful, but was delivered to the jobsite in the most professional way for our installers to handle the project. And of course, we utilized the Bostik system to ensure that the medallion was installed at optimal levels.”

Banda summed up the successful evening by stating, “This is the fourth competition we’ve staged with our partners at MGM Resorts International in the last three years. In all of these, we’ve arranged for a permanent installation to take place at one of their key properties. Everybody involved wins. But in particular, those who submitted their designs had great opportunities to showcase their creative talents, and subsequently receive well-deserved notoriety. Bostik builds strong bonding situations with much more than just its state-of-the-art specialty adhesive systems. Through programs such as Bostik Signature Spaces, we bring people together, and they build relationships that last for many years. That’s really strong bonding!”
