The 12th edition of the Saloni WorldWide Moscow, which closed last October at Moscow’s Crocus Expo exhibition centre, proved yet again to be the leading high quality furnishing and accessories specialist exhibition held in Russia. The event, organised by Federlegno Arredo Eventi in partnership with ICE - the Italian Trade Agency, notched up more than 30,000 attendees over the four days.
300 were the participating companies – 22% of which come from Australia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain and the US – located in around 10,000 square metres of exhibition space – showcasing the very best from last April’s Salone del Mobile.Milano – who see the event as an unmissable opportunity to gain a foothold in the Russian and post-Soviet markets, increasingly interested in high-end classic, designer and luxury pieces. The Salone del Mobile.Milano 2016 debut of the latter segment, known as xLux, attracted great interest.
Meetings between professional operators and exhibiting countries were both numerous and profitable, confirming the event’s driving role in Russia and the former Soviet Republics. Positive signals have been relayed by the 110 delegates invited by ICE from 18 cities in Russia and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, who have placed a large number of orders, ensuing from the 2,500 appointments arranged over the four days of the Saloni.
Russia is still the leading developing market for Italian furnishing and will retain pole position as far as imports of high end furnishing are concerned. Further testament to the strong Russian market interest in Italy’s home furnishing sector and Made in Italy, were the 14,388 accredited Russian visitors to the Salone del Mobile.Milano 2016, in 2nd place after China.
12a edizione anche per il SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow che ha coinvolto 44 giovani designer russi e delle ex Repubbliche sovietiche. I giovani premiati sono stati invitati al SaloneSatellite di Milano che si terrà nell’ambito del Salone del Mobile.Milano dal 4 al 9 aprile 2017.
Di grande richiamo anche le tre Master Classes, un momento di approfondimento e confronto sui temi del progetto affrontati attraverso tre dialoghi con tre degli 11 studi di architettura che hanno preso parte a STANZE. Altre filosofie dell’abitare, la grande mostra organizzata dal Salone del Mobile.Milano nell’ambito della XXI Triennale International Exhibition di Milano: Duilio Forte, Claudio Lazzarini e Carl Pickering, Francesco Librizzi.
Terza edizione, infine per MADE expo WorldWide, manifestazione dedicata all’architettura d’interni che ha visto la partecipazione di alcune importanti aziende italiane del settore porte e superfici.
The next edition of the Saloni WorldWide Moscow will be held in October 2017
