The Mido trade show in Milan will present a new layout on Feb. 24-26. With a stronger focus on innovation, the Mido Tech area will be moved from Hall 5 to Hall 6, joining the future-oriented More! area opened in 2016. New designers and start-ups will continue to present their products in the Lab Academy area of the hall. The Far East Pavilion will occupy Halls 5 and 7. In another new development, the Bestore award will celebrate not only the best store design, but also the best innovation in the overall shopping experience. On the eve of the fair, about 200 selected buyers will be invited to a special event for a preview of products by 70 Italian firms.
