The Salone del Mobile is the global benchmark for the Home Furnishing Sector.
An invaluable tool for the industry as well as an ongoing, quite extraordinary promotional vehicle.
The Salone made its first appearance in 1961,
designed to promote Italian furniture and furnishing accessories on the
export market, and it has continued to do so impeccably, ensuring that
the quality of Italian furniture is known to all four corners of the
earth, and continues so to do, with half of all its visitors coming from
around the world.
In 1965 the
leading furnishing sector companies were brought together in one single
commercial exhibition space for the very first time. 1965 was also the
year in which exhibitors began to devote serious thought to their
stands, a factor that will always make the Salone stand out against
other trade fairs; the first collateral event was also held in 1965, and
Domus devoted its leading article to the Salone that same year.
The 2012 edition was attended by 292,370 trade operators, 188,579 of whom came from
foreign Countries; 39,279 members of the general public and 6,484
The next edition will be held on 9th-14th April 2013
