At closing time of the 48th edition of Filo exhibitors confirmed their satisfaction for the achievements at the fair.
Roberto Rimoldi – Filatura Luisa: “We are happy with the performance of these two days at Filo, considering also that summer collection does not represent for us the peak season. Particularly interesting for us, the vast majority of visits we received were made by foreign buyers”.
Paola Rossi – Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia: “Our opinion about Filo is positive, as always. We have registered a constant flow of visitors, more Italian than foreign ones, but just because we had already met some Italian clients before the fair, because of their special needs. Among the most appreciated products, silk yarns, silk/wool blends and silk/linen blends, with rustic/chic effects”.
Vincenzo Caneparo – Davifil: “Our judgement of Filo is positive. We hosted a number of visitors equal to the last very positive editions, with various new and high-qualified names. We have noticed a large number of foreign visitors, that, as far as our company is concerned, overcame Italian ones”.
Gianni Fantini – Tollegno 1900: “We are satisfied with the trend of these two days at Filo. We received more visitors than in the edition of September 2016, with foreign visitors overcoming Italian ones. There were various origin countries: Russia, Turkey, Korea, Germany, Japan and Portugal. Of course, the quality of buyers is more important than the number, but we are satisfied since we have gathered names of very interesting potential clients”.
Francesco Della Porta – Pozzi Electa: “We have registered a high participation of buyers, qualified and concrete. They appreciated our totally Made in Italy production, entirely made by self-produced energy (both photovoltaic and hydroelectric). We have studied collection in five themes, that has been really appreciated by clients”.
Vittoria Marchi – Marchi & Fildi: “The evaluation of this edition is totally positive. We have seen many costumers, both consolidated and new ones. Among the foreign ones, buyers showed interest for all our proposals, from the most classical ones to research articles. Among new proposals, our yarns devoted to a higher market range rose great interest. On the other hand, our company endorses service as a constant research of products, but also as accurate organisation of techniques and commercials structures meeting clients’ needs to 360 degrees”.
Südwolle Group: “This has been a positive edition, with a good flow of visitors, strongly interested in our products, especially those produced through the research. For summer collection, we have proposed blurred textures, in relief, with three-dimensional and well-defined surfaces”.
Marco Bardelle – Tintoria Finissaggio 2000: “This is the first time that my company exhibit at Filo. It has been a nice ‘surprise’. We had interesting technical discussion with visitors, and not only debates on prices and quantities, as generally happens elsewhere. We have found also costumers willing to search and appreciate new products. Therefore, according to our opinion, Filo is a truly B2B fair”.
Mario and Maurizio Mancini – Tintoria Mancini: “Our presence at Filo has been extremely positive. Visitors were highly interested in our products. Many new companies contacted us ‘discovering’ some news, besides our consolidated costumers”.
Barbara Carini – Cps Tex: “Our first time at Filo is undoubtedly positive. It gave us the opportunity to understand how develop our participation in the fair and the interaction with both Filo exhibitors and visitors, who represent our target-clients. As far as machinery is concerned, we are able to offer a good standing and overall service, using also high-quality suppliers”.
