At the end of the second day of Filo we collected the comments of the exhibitors, some in the form of a video interview. Everyone expressed satisfaction with the work done in the 54th edition of Filo. We publish here a first part of the interviews carried out at the fair, the second and third parts will be reported in the next issues of FiloNewsLetter.
Christian Spirito from Davifil: “For us the 54th Filo edition has been positive, considering also the extremely delicate moment that this sector is living. We have registered a high number of visitors, foreign ones too, especially from France and Portugal. Our company proposes a wide range of high-quality products. We aim at producing natural products, propose recycled yarns and work with non-dyed wool waste.”
Elisa Salimbeni from Filatura Alma: “Customers’ flow has been higher than expectations for this 54th Filo edition. We have also appreciated the new location, which enabled us to enlarge our booth. Even during this hard time, we have continued to work looking for a continuous technical innovation, resulting from our expertise within the textile industry, our work and the passion of qualified technicians and the continuity of corporate strategies.”
Piero Vitalini from Forza Giovane Art – one of the companies that participated in the 54th edition of Filo in the new section “Services and accessories for companies”. “This is our first time at Filo, an interesting fair in many aspects. We are here by bringing our long tradition of trimming, but we are looking to the future. Future indeed lies in young people, and we work with threads to create a new beauty.”
Anna Adami from Ghezzi: “During the two days of Filo, we have worked the same as during past editions: this is a very positive result which goes beyond expectations. We think that the new location is certainly more suitable for a fair as Filo is, more functional and comfortable.”
Alberto Bordin from Marfil: “The exhibition performed well, we have met our usual customers, but also new ones. We are very happy with the new location, which is surely more suitable for a fair as Filo is. As far as our products are concerned, we have expanded our range, adding to the classic lame, that has already become increasingly finer, softer, and more resistant to dyeing treatments, a range of refracting yarns ranging from bare strips accounting for 1/100, 1/69 in width, up to 2mm to gimped yarns with nylon or polyester to make them more resistant.”
Dino Masso from Tintoria Finissaggio 2000: “We are very happy since Filo gave a recovery signal; it was necessary for all of us, as operators of textile world. In addition, the new location is particularly suitable for a B2B fair, like Filo is. Visitors were in line with expectations in a difficult time.”
