This annual educational and networking event from IFI coincides with the famous Salone Del Mobile in Milan, Italy each April. The exclusive event brings together international Interiors industry representatives for cross-border networking and knowledge sharing in the context of this world-famous design festival.

Hosted within the local design community, the reception continues to grow in popularity, and has expanded to incorporate guest speakers and panel discussions exploring the theme selected for World Interiors Day. IFI@Salone is an event that provides opportunities for inspiration, celebration and shared experience with peers from around the world, and positions IFI and its members at the heart of the global design and interiors industries.


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, IFI@SALONE events were cancelled for 2021. We hope to resume activities in 2022.
