An international sectoral benchmark, the Salone del Mobile.Milano is currently finessing the upcoming edition, which boasts a new format for the classic section and two events providing unprecedented visualisations of contemporary design and the workspace. The Salone’s close partnership with Milan is key, making the city and the event the capital of design, as the ADV campaign states.

It also attracts more than 300,000 visitors from over 165 different countries with its comprehensive and extensive range of goods – from furnishings to lighting to the workspace – and is covered by more than 5,000 journalists worldwide.
