Hello we would like to invite your participation in our 9th event in Milan during the Salone del Mobile this April.
This year after exploring the possibilities of many different locations we have confirmed a venue in Zona Isola, North East of Stazione Centrale.
It is an area that we have produced shows in previously when we first started working in Milan in 2001 2002 and 2003. Now obviously it’s not Tortona and it will not be so busy. We looked into venues there and the prices are crazier than they were last year, 35,000 for a car park with no power etc. That said we know we can get good people along. Feedback from last year is that Isola was an area with some of the most interesting shows and that it’s generally regarded in Milan as up and coming. In 2001-2003 when we were there we had alot of visitors.
The venue we have is Revel Scalo d’Isola. It’s a beautiful and elegant space which will suit us well. It has exhibition/gallery space on two floors, a bar restaurant, a theatre and a big outdoor area. It is well known in Milan from being used for different design, art, fashion events and being Alexander McQueen’s Milan HQ/showroom. This year also we are working with Alessandro Consolo and his team at Consolo Produzioni & Consulenza S.r.l. They will be working on communicating and promoting our event in Milan. Again we have worked successfully with them on previous shows in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.
We already have a very strong show with the exhibitors confirmed so far. If you would like to join us please contact us.
So let us know what you think, get back to us with any questions and please feel free to forward this to anyone that you think would be interested.
