Handbook for events
From 18 to 21 the 61th Salone del Mobile.Milano will be reserved for operators in the sector, while on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 April it will also be open to the public.
For the 2023 edition, moving within the exhibitions and quickly reaching the exhibitors will be easier.

Among the 2023 novelties, the events will be on a single exhibition level, to improve the use and experience of the visitor. The Euroluce biennial will return with a new layout, signed by the Lombardini22 studio, where man will be at the center and no longer the stand.
The cultural program will be hosted in the spaces of Euroluce and will range from architecture to art with exhibitions, talks, workshops and site-specific installations.
