Host Milano & Covid-19

The 2023 edition of Host Milano has been confirmed to take place from October 13th until October 17th. Attendees are expected to follow the up-to-date coronavirus protective measures put in place at Fiera Milano in Milan, Italy. This will include maintain social distance and wearing masks in all designated areas. Additionally, attendees must present valid 3G entry documents before entering. 


The well-known trade fair Host Milano gathers many experts from the hotel, restaurant & catering sectors. It’s been successfully running since 1966 and has been a massive source for inspiration within the industry, not to mention a driver of innovation and market shares. It’s here that you as an exhibitor have the perfect opportunity to grow your influence on an international level, which is not to be missed.

Another impressive aspect of Host Milano is the versatility and breadth of the product portfolio. Visitors have access to bread, pizza, pasta, food service equipment, coffee and tea, pastry, furniture, bar equipment and interior, food processing machinery, interior fittings and vending machines.


Host Milano runs over the course of five days in total, and editions are spaced out every two years. At present, editions fall on odd years and are organised around the middle of October. Fiera Milano serves as both the venue and the official organiser. Programming is scheduled from 09:30 in the morning until 18:30 pm, though hours are subject to change. Because of such potential changes, you should consider checking the visiting hours for the specific day.

Fiera Milano enjoys an excellent location in Milano, Italy, with superb access to public transport. Visitors are able to make their way to the exhibition grounds using the Underground Red Line M1 or taking one of the several trains that make a stop at Rho Fiera station - S5, S6 and S11. There will also be a direct shuttle bus from the airport during the event.
