Coronavirus forces postponement of Salone del Mobile

February 2020

Salone del Mobile, the highly influential Italian furniture fair that incorporates Eurocucina, has been postponed until June because of the escalating Coronavirus emergency.  The new dates, 16th to 21st June, were decided by organiser Federlegno Arredo Eventi after an emergency meeting.  The announcement was made jointly by Claudio Luti, President of Salone del Mobile; Emanuele Orsini, President of Federlegno Arredo Eventi, and Giuseppe Sala, the Mayor of Milan.

“The Salone was due to open on 21st April, but we have decided to postpone it by a couple of months. The new date is, therefore, 16th June,” stated Mayor Sala.  “I am calling on our colleagues in the furnishing sector and the Salone del Mobile to pull together to make sure Milan doesn’t grind to a halt.  We need to work objectively to stop this virus spreading, but we must also take care not to spread the virus of distrust. Milan has to carry on. It’s not easy right now to try and appeal to visitors and convince professionals from all over the world, but I believe this is the right decision.  It is crucial for everyone to do their bit, therefore I call on the government to intervene and provide some help for a fundamental sector for our economy.”
