In the lead up to the recent NFDA conference and Expo in Nashville, we launched a special offer which was promoted widely through social media and channels like Connected Director. The three offers proved to be very popular, with plenty of entries received to win our floor stock.
Valery Bayliff was the lucky winner on behalf of Bailiff & Son Funeral Home in Criderville, Ohio.
LifeArt has developed a flat-pack design which enables cost effective distribution, where traditional coffins and caskets are difficult to transport. The new design caters for both full and half-couch options.
The result allows larger quantity orders to be made easily available at lower freight cost.
The process for assembling them is straight forward and has now also been documented in an easy to follow video. We have included a link to view a shortened version, so you can see how simple it is to do.
The new design has not made any impact on the strength,water resistance or environmental advantages of the product.LifeArt maintains all its advantages which make it a complete solution for all families. Read More
Hong Kong will have the second largest ratio of retirees in Asia by 2050. According to a recent report there there will be 66 retirees for every 100 employees. 40% of the population will be over 65.

We recently participated in our first visit to the International Cemetery Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) expo, which was held in Las Vegas. We were introduced to a different audience to those who attend some of the other conferences. We captured a lot of attention, because there is nothing else like LifeArt in the market.
As we are now actively distributing into the US, the level of engagement was heightened as we are rightly viewed as a serious player in the market.Read More
