The organisers of Proposte, a fair for producers of furnished and curtain fabrics, have announced that Proposte 2020 will be held from September 23-25 at Villa Erba in Cernobbio, as the organisers want to be close to the market. Organisers stated that due to emergency caused by Covid-19, entire European fair calendar is subject to changes and postponements.

The management of Proposte has considered all possible solutions in order to implement the best strategy in the face of the emergency and has come to the conclusion that shifting the 2020 dates to September is the best choice. “We started with the common intention of confirming the April date to give a sign of positivity and continuity to the worldwide market.

The situation has evolved on a day-by-day basis, both internally and internationally,” Piercarlo Viganò, president at Proposte, said in a press release.

The strong reduction in air traffic and the cancellations of flights to Italy ordered by some governments and airlines has led us to a forced choice.

Therefore, we have decided to postpone the event to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to visit our exhibition in full tranquillity and continue their business as usual.

It is a decision we have taken for reasons of force majeure, but it is certainly the best solution for the 2020 edition of Proposte in this difficult year.”
