Salone del Mobile e Biannale di Venezia new dates

The Coronavirus emergency is having a huge impact on various aspects of our daily lives. Events both small and large, conferences, presentations and forums are all being affected by sudden stops and postponements. Not just in the Veneto, Lombardy and Emilia Romagna regions but, at this point, all over Italy, everything has been put on hold to comply with government directives aimed at containing the Coronavirus. So far, over 70 events have been postponed and 22 cancelled (Il Sole 24 ore).

This problem also significantly affects large international fairs: events whose value and importance are not limited to the business interactions of their exhibitors and buyers but involve vast areas and have a far-reaching economic influence on tourism, transport, catering, trade and, more generally, on the stability of market trends within various sectors.

La nostra attività di trendwatching ci porta durante l’anno a visitare molte di queste fiere internazionali, eventi dai quali estrapoliamo e processiamo una enorme quantità di informazioni utili a tracciare quelle che saranno le tendenze nel mondo del design. Nel 2020 abbiamo finora visitato ben 5 fiere internazionali tutte nel mese di Gennaio, mentre per quelle che verranno abbiamo necessariamente dovuto riassettare il nostro calendario in virtù di tutte le nuove date delle fiere di design comunicate.

During the year, our trendwatching activities take us to many such international fairs, events from which we extrapolate and process an enormous amount of information that’s highly useful for tracking design trends. In 2020 we have, so far, visited no less than 5 international fairs (all in January). For future fairs we have, of course, been forced to reshuffle our calendar as per the new design fair dates that have been issued.

More specifically, three architecture and design fairs that were set to go ahead shortly (in April and May) have now been postponed to the June-August period. These are the Salone del Mobile 2020, Fuorisalone 2020 and the Venice Biennale Architettura 2020. Here are the new dates.

Salone del Mobile 2020 new dates

The new dates for the Salone del Mobile 2020 are from 16 to 21 June 2020.

Postponement of the Salone del Mobile 2020 was announced on 25 February by the Mayor of Milan, Mr. Sala, together with the event’s organisers who simultaneously asked for a “special effort by industry professionals and visitors from all over the world who had planned to travel to Italy”. Salone del Mobile put out the following message on social media.

Fuorisalone 2020 new dates

Contestualmente allo spostamento del Salone del Mobile 2020, anche gli organizzatori del Fuorisalone 2020 si sono attivati per spostare l’evento a giugno, con l’obiettivo di mantenere la formula di concomitanza con l’evento di Rho.

La nuova data del Fuorisalone 2020 è dal 15 Giugno al 21 giugno 2020

The new dates were released the day after the postponement of the Salone del Mobile was announced.

Simultaneously with the postponement of the Salone del Mobile 2020, the Fuorisalone 2020 organisers also decided to shift their event to June, the goal being to keep the event concomitant with the one in Rho.

Venice Biennale Architettura 2020 new dates

The opening of the 17th International Architecture Show 2020 organised by Hashim Sarkis has also been put back.

The new Venice Biennale Architettura dates are from Saturday 29 August to Sunday 29 November.

A Biennale, then, that will be shorter, still end as prescribed at the end of November and be inaugurated with a 3-month delay. That same week will also see Venice inaugurate, on 2 September, the 77th Venice International Film Festival directed by Alberto Barbera.
