Over the years, Singapore has been a hotbed for international trade fairs. In the design community, we have seen the Asian version of some of Europe’s most established fairs, such as Maison & Objet Asia and 100% Design, as well as our own fairs, including, Artstage and IFFS (International Furniture Fair Singapore), and Singapore Design Week come and go.
Then design fairs took a break in Singapore in the year before the pandemic, promising to return with fresh concepts. With the global pandemic, however, international fairs came to a halt, providing more reason to rethink their relevance in a changing world.
FIND – Design Fair Asia will be Singapore’s first design-oriented international fair after the pandemic. FIND stands for Furniture, Interiors and Design. Taking place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre from Sept 22 to 24, it is one of the highlights of Singapore Design Week 2022.
The event is also a partnership between the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg), the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and Italy’s renowned event organisers dmg events and Fiera Milano, the name behind Salone del Mobile. Let’s hear from Fiera Milano CEO Luca Palermo.
