Filo, the International Exhibition of Yarns and Fibres for orthogonal weaving and circular knitwear and for technical fabrics, welcomes you to the 54th edition.
The exhibition takes place at MiCo – Milan Convention Center and it will end tomorrow, on the 8th of October 2020 at 5 pm.
In the yarns industry this is the first international fair that re-launches direct and personal contact between exhibitors and clients. It is then a particularly important event with a view to a recovery of the whole textile system.
The centrality of textile industry for Italian economy and then for the future of the whole country – especially for younger people, who today are still studying – has been highlighted in the video message that Lucia Azzolina, the Minister for Education, has sent for the opening of the 54th edition of Filo. The strong connection between industrial development, social wellbeing, training, and education has been proven once again by the visit to the fair of Elena Chiorino, the Councillor of Piedmont Region for Training, Education, and Employment.
The gaze into the future cannot depart from the theme of sustainability: for long time Filo has been committed in the development of products which are increasingly sustainable in relation to environmental and ethical-social aspects and this commitment is represented by FiloFlow project, which is largely present in the Trend Area of Filo.
Through the 54th edition, Filo strengthens the synergies with the other protagonists of the textile-apparel supply chain: with Sistema Moda Italia, Milano Unica (where Filo is present with a dedicated space within the Trend Area and that for textile industry has pioneered the comeback to the fairs carried out with people physically present) and with Acimit (Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers), which is institutionally present at the exhibition, proving the continuity between textile machineries’ producers and yarns’ ones.
The dates of the 54th edition
Today – on the 7th of October 2020 – at 11.30 am, Mr. Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, describes the contents and the news of the 54th edition during the traditional opening press conference. The meeting is held for journalists only.
The visit to the 54th edition of Filo is made in total tranquillity, thanks to the safety measures implemented by Filo in cooperation with Fiera Milano. Visitors are invited to respect some simple rules.
