Coronavirus prompts Proposte delay

Furnishing fabric and curtain sourcing event Proposte has been rescheduled from 27-29th April to 23rd-25th September, due to the impact of the coronavirus in Italy and the wider world.

Show president Piercarlo Viganò explains: "We started with the common intention of confirming the April date to give a sign of positivity and continuity to the worldwide market. The situation has evolved on a day-by-day basis, both internally and internationally. The strong reduction in air traffic and the cancellations of flights to Italy ordered by some governments and airlines has led us to a forced choice. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the event to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to visit our exhibition in full tranquility and continue their business as usual. It is a decision we have taken for reasons of force majeure, but it is certainly the best solution for the 2020 edition of Proposte in this difficult year."

The event will still take place at Villa Erba in Cernobbio.
