Another factor influencing this decision is the availability of Hall 37 for the major industry event. The authorities were not confident in the completion of the new hall as all construction work has stopped in Italy.

As the majority of the public remain at home, Cersaie is making the best out of their YouTube channel. The channel is hosting a virtual talk with many architecture and design firms. They have also invited keynote speakers from the earlier show such as Kazuyo Sejima, and Renzo Piano to speak.
