The 2020 edition of the Salone del Mobile.Milano has been suspended to 2021 due to the COVID–19 pandemic…
Just weeks after Salone del Mobile.Milano was postponed from April until June of 2020, due to the outbreak of COVID–19, the organisers of the event have now announced that the event has been further suspended until April of 2021.
Salone del Mobile.Milano, which is the world’s largest and arguably most visible furniture fair in the international design calendar, will now take place between April 13 – 18 2021.
The decision to postpone was made by the Board of the Salone del Mobile.Milano in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that is spreading to almost every country in the world.
In a statement, the show’s organisers said: “Although we were determined to keep to the June date, to allow the annual event to take place as planned, the present, unprecedented circumstances and medium-term uncertainties now mean that this year’s Salone can no longer go ahead.
“The 2021 edition, which will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Salone, will be a special event for the entire sector. For the first time ever, all the biennial exhibitions will be held in conjunction with the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, Workplace3.0, S.Project and SaloneSatellite. This means that EuroCucina, FTK – Technology For the Kitchen and the International Bathroom Exhibition will also take place next year, along with Euroluce, which was already scheduled for 2021.”
The sector-wide trade fair is said to represent a fresh opportunity to pull together to revitalise our businesses, the entire supply chain that works in synergy with the Salone, and Milan.
