Salone del Mobile Milano postponed until June 2020 following coronavirus outbreak
In a statement released by Salone del Mobile Milano‘s organisers, it has been confirmed that the event’s 2020 edition has been postposed from its original date of 21st-26th April to 16th-21st June. This is due to the rise in cases of coronavirus in northern Italy – the majority of these cases have been reported in the Lombardy region, of which Milan is the capital.
“Following an extraordinary meeting today of the Board of Federlegno Arredo Eventi, and in view of the ongoing public health emergency, the decision has been taken to postpone the upcoming edition of the Salone del Mobile.Milan to 16th – 21st June,” the statement reads.
“Confirmation of the change of date for the trade fair – strongly supported by the Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala – means that the manufacturers, in a major show of responsibility, will be able to present their finalised work to an international public that sees the annual appointment with the Salone del Mobile.Milano as a benchmark for creativity and design.”
