The 53rd edition of Filo, the Exhibition of Yarns and Fibres for orthogonal and circular knit weaving and for technical fabrics, will be held on Thursday the 27th and on Friday the 28th of February 2020 at MiCo – Milano Convention Centre (via Gattamelata 5, Milano).
The 53rd edition of Filo shows two innovations: the new venue and the new dates, shifting from the traditional Wednesday-Thursday to Thursday-Friday.
The choice comes essentially from the wish to offer more services to participants in Filo. As for the new venue, the relocation to MiCo is basically due to space: Palazzo delle Stelline, the place that has represented for long time the headquarter of Filo’s success and growth, would not offer the enlargement of the exhibiting area and therefore Filo decided to move to MiCo, which, on the contrary, has space enough to offer adequate services to a fair as Filo. It is not a chance that Paolo Monfermoso, general manager for Filo, has defined the relocation from Palazzo delle Stelline to MiCo as “a painful but necessary choice“.
For the edition held in February 2020, Filo has decided also to shift from the traditional Wednesday-Thursday to Thursday-Friday. The positioning on the eve of the weekend helps to give more calm to visitors and this innovation has been appreciated by exhibitors.
The 53rd edition of Filo is scheduled on Thursday the 27th and Friday the 28th of February 2020 at MiCo – Milano Convention Centre
