With over 350 leading brands, 50 international speakers, and more than 15 thousand attendees expected from around the world, the event is a unique opportunity for Italian companies to start exporting their furniture collections to Asia. By providing direct contact with the key players of the Southeast Asian market, this is an ideal showcase for presenting products.

“Fiera Milano is bringing the design and furniture sector – the jewel in the crown of Italian savoir faire – to Singapore and the world. The event will bring together leading international professionals and broaden the horizons of Italian design icons. Following the success of the first FIND, we’re convinced of the effectiveness of exhibitions as tools for opening new markets to companies trying to expand their business beyond Europe. FIND is an industry-wide event that puts Italian design at centerstage – a result that our renewed partnership with dmg Events, a leading event organizer at the international level, has helped us achieve”.
