The commercial trade shows were joined in 1998 by the SaloneSatellite, an exhibition intended to provide a showcase for young designers from all over the world and to facilitate their encounter with the most important manufacturers exhibiting at the Salone.
Altogether, these exhibitions, called the Salone del Mobile.Milano, cover a net display area of about 230,000 square meters in the Milan Fairgrounds, Rho. The events showcase products manufactured by more than 2,500 of the most dynamic and creative firms operating on the international market, and attract over 300,000 trade visitors, more than 60% of whom from 160 countries around the world.
