MAISON&OBJET, the premiere global showcase in design and home décor hosted in three inspiring cities, is excited to return to Miami Beach for the second year from May 10 through May 13, 2016 at the Miami Beach Convention
Gastón Isoldi takes the helm as the Americas Director of MAISON&OBJET. Based in Miami, he will work with the North and South American markets to ensure the success all MAISON&OBJET fairs globally.
“We are very pleased to bring on Gastón Isoldi as Americas Director,” says Philippe Brocart, the Managing Director for MAISON&OBJET. “We are excited for the strong reception the Americas fair has already received and are confident that with Gaston at the helm, it will continue to flourish.”
Isoldi is an experienced luxury trade show organizer, who previously held a post for the last decade at Reed Exhibitions, who, along with Ateliers d’Art de France, jointly owns SAFI, the company that organizes MAISON&OBJET. Isoldi also held noted positions with advertising and marketing agencies Ogilvy & Mather and McCann- Erickson. He finished his studies in Advertising in Buenos Aires in the late ‘80s and moved to Miami 15 years ago.
He has since worked for regional companies such as Sony Latin America and Visa International in their marketing and communication strategies departments focusing on the Latin American market.
“With each year, Miami is becoming regarded more and more as an essential destination for art and design,” says
Isoldi. “Like with Miami Art Week during the winter, I hope to make MAISON&OBJET AMERICAS a highly anticipated event and design destination week for Miami in the spring.”
MAISON&OBJET AMERICAS debuted for the first time last May in Miami Beach at the noted Miami Beach Convention Center with over 10,000 visitors and 300 exhibitors, both domestic and international, to an audience of interior designers, architects, retailers and editors.
Following great success from its first year, additional exhibitors coming on this year will expand the fair into both Halls C and D, nearly doubling in size from last year’s event.
“An international design fair of such importance as MAISON&OBJET is something we look forward to welcoming for the second consecutive year in Miami Beach,” says Philip Levine, Mayor of Miami Beach. “The fair was met with a great amount of enthusiasm last spring, and we will continue that momentum into 2016, while showcasing how strong Miami Beach is as an arts, design and cultural capital.”
