In May 2020 Fuorisalone.it opened its official WeChat and Weibo accounts, 米兰设计周 FUORISALONE (Milano Design Week Fuorisalone), managed in collaboration with Digital to Asia.
Not only tools for the promotion of activities related to the Milan Design Week, the Chinese channels are communication platforms active throughout the year with the aim of presenting trends, companies and products, especially made in Italy.
Moreover, Milan is a brand recognized by the Chinese public, and its events and trends have a strong appeal.
Why invest in WeChat and Weibo in China
With more than one billion active users, WeChat is a real eco-system. WeChat is not only used as social media, as it allows a lot of other actions such as messaging, purchasing products, accessing any kind of service, using mini-programs to play or receive assistance, and more.
