Notably, Salone del Mobile isn’t canceled entirely. But earlier this year, coronavirus concerns led many companies to pull out of Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, the world’s largest fair for smartphones. MWC was outright canceled for 2020. No doubt, we will continue to see major worldwide events postponed or delayed until coronavirus comes under control—so much so that even the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo are in jeopardy. … [Read more...] about Salone del Mobile, the world’s largest design fair, is postponed due to coronavirus
