The eggersmann team is excited to make its inaugural debut at this event to share innovations that challenge the concept of what a kitchen is and what functionality cabinetry can deliver.

Our actual exhibitions are a secret, for now, but check back after the opening of EuroCucina for more details and photos.

Finding Your Way Around EuroCucina

Our eggersmann team will be located in Pavilion 02, Booth B15. Here are a couple of tools to help you find the pavilion and plan your visit.

Other Must-Haves

Though enjoyable and invigorating, the sprawling array of exhibits will undoubtedly prove tiring at times, so here are a list of must-haves to reduce stress and boost your productivity.

Tickets

The first 4 days of Salone del Mobile are for the trades. Following the commercial event, the final 2 days are open to the public. You may find information about tickets, children, and pets here.

Euros in Your Wallet

Exchange euros before you leave home or when you arrive to ensure you have some cash on hand for grabbing a quick drink or snack when credit cards are less convenient. Banks and ATMs can be found in the pavilion reception areas and Corso Italia.

Comfortable Shoes

Walking is the only mode of transportation inside Salone del Mobile. And, as with most European cities, you will find yourself walking to your transportation to and from your accommodations each morning and evening. Wear comfortable shoes, perhaps having 2 different pairs on hand to change daily, to keep your feet happy and you feeling energetic.

Business Cards

Bring plenty of business cards to exchange contact information quickly with fellow professionals, exhibitors, or potential collaborators.

Hands-Free Backpack or Tote Bag

Carry your essentials in a hands-free option to make it easy to shake hands (or talk with them!) and with plenty of extra room to collect brochures or samples from exhibitors. A backpack is perfect as it shifts the weight off your arms and onto your body’s core for less fatigue. Plus, you are less likely to misplace a hands-free backpack or cross-body tote bag down.

Pro tip: Put a location-finding smart tag like an Apple Air Tag in your bag in case it does get misplaced…just be sure to have your phone in your pocket and not in the bag with the tag. And, you can set an alarm to notify you on your phone when you are further than a few feet from your bag so you will realize sooner that you have left your bag behind. Another pro tip: Carry an extra lightweight bag in your backpack or tote as if you find you have accumulated too many items during the day, any reception area will accept items you wish to offload until end of day.

Dress in Layers

Adjusting to variable April temperatures and weather changes in Milan throughout the day calls for dressing in layers. Even inside a building, you may find having a sweater or light jacket to pull out of your backpack quite handy in case the air-con is a bit cool.

Stay Powered

Events like EuroCucina, and travelling in general, drain your phone’s battery. Navigation apps, emailing to stay in touch with business or friends back home, texting to meet up with someone for dinner…they all add up. Bring an extra phone charger with Euro adapter with you to the exhibit hall. The best idea is to have an extra one on top of what you have in your hotel room so that you don’t forget to pack it for the day. Another way to ensure your tech stays powered up is to also carry a power bank that can charge your device at least twice. Just remember to bring the right cords to re-charge the powerbank back at your hotel.

Keep Yourself Powered

Though opportunities to taste your way through a wide variety of culinary adventures will be at every corner, you may be well advised to pack your favorite healthy snacks and a reusable water bottle to keep refreshments close at hand throughout the day.

Save Steps and Time

The Circolare Fiera shuttle bus service can get you between pavilions quickly and help you save energy for after-hours exploration in the city.

Lose the Baggage

If you find that you must come directly to Salone del Mobile from the airport before checking into your accommodations, you have options! Luggage drops are available at any reception area of the event. Changing rooms are also available. To make your own luggage drop plans before leaving home, search online for “luggage storage salone del mobile milan” and make arrangements to securely store your luggage during your first day at the event.

Beyond Salone del Mobile

Milan Design Week is a citywide event. Those who stay the whole week and reserve some energy for exploring beyond the exhibits will find special Fuorisalone events at boutiques, showrooms, and other design-centered storefronts. Watch for announcements from Milan’s design districts such as Brera, Isola, or Tortona, for additional events. Consider venturing out to one or both exquisite villas that will be overtaken by Alcova, an event focused on independent design. Each year, Alcova takes over different venues within Milan’s city limits.
