Traditionally, a large block of events will be devoted to design.

For the first time Mebel 2021 will feature the Furniture Retail Fest. It is organised jointly with FC Project. At the festival, experts will discuss new opportunities for successful sales. There will be a presentation of the Store of the Future immersive zone. The festival’s aim is to show how global technological advances in the field of retail directly or indirectly influence the development of furniture retail in Russia.
