Excitement is building as the kitchen industry prepares for the 22nd edition of EuroCucina, held at the Fieramilano exhibition venue 17th – 22nd April. However, two further events stand to share EuroCucina’s limelight this year. FTK, the ‘Technology for the Kitchen’ showcase, is held in partnership with EuroCucina. 2018 will see the collaborative exhibitions, together, consist of 158 exhibitors, sharing the 36,100 sq m across pavilions 9, 11, 13 and 15. Opposite these will stand the steadily growing International Bathroom Exhibition – in it’s now seventh year of running, the exhibition will consist of 228 exhibitors, spread across the 20,600 sq m of pavilions 22 and 24.
What to expect…
A forum for interface and discussion, for leading Italian and international companies, and a unique opportunity to scope upcoming trends, EuroCucina is one of the kitchen sector’s most important and influential events. The exhibition’s strong points are its immensely high product quality and wide range of goods; not simply showcasing the latest in contemporary kitchens but also providing interesting and intriguing insights into the future. For every type of cooking, living and coexisting, EuroCucina will steer visitors towards the perfect solution and the best design.
The IoT (Internet of Things) and virtual assistants have made for numerous conceptions of the smart kitchen of the future, with permanently connected and integrated, hyper-efficient built-in appliances geared to energy saving, changing our everyday relationship with the kitchen. The FTK is a singular opportunity to get to grips with the innovative products, prototypes, concepts and visions of what will be the future of the art of food conservation and cooking.
The International Bathroom Exhibition
A larger-than-ever exhibition area will showcase the best of international manufacturing, from furniture and accessories to shower cubicles, saunas, sanitary-ware and radiators, coverings, taps, bathtubs and hot tubs. The prestige of this biennial exhibition is attested to by the return of leading companies and the advent of new exhibitors.
Also worth mentioning is SaloneSatellite. Taking up a small corner in pavilions 13 and 15 (next to FTK), SaloneSatellite has scouted and given a stage to the best young and rising talent in the world of design.
