Milan is often acknowledged to be the capital of design, but it is also the epicenter of hospitality. These two worlds will come together in HostMilano, the trade fair point of reference of Ho.Re.Ca. The 40th edition of the event will take place at Fieramilano, in Rho, from 20 to 24 October 2017.

Visiting HostMilano will be like travelling into the future. You will have the opportunity to see the elevated hospitality that hotels, restaurants, and bars will reserve for us in the next few years at the Furniture and Tableware area. Other pavilions will be dedicated to raw materials and equipment.

There will be many events to attend. Highly recommended is the Exihs - Excellent Italian Hospitality Services - area designed by director Davide Rampello and architect Dante O. Benini, where an artistic performance will extend the opportunity to travel through the evolution of hospitality, thanks to an evocative use of surfaces and materials.

HOST Thinking

You have until 31 March to sign up to the third year of HOSThinking, a design award resulting from the collaboration between POLI.design, Consortium of the Politecnico di Milano and Host- Fiera Milano. The contest, called 10 Designers for 100 Products, will award innovative visions of professional hospitality spaces. The 10 designers selected will develop their own project live during the trade fair using 100 products chosen from those presented on the stands.
