The 48th Filo edition, the international yarns and fibres’ exhibition, closed in a positive atmosphere, registering a growing number of visitors: + 9% compared to the corresponding edition in 2016.
Paolo Monfermoso, manager of Filo, commented: “The 48th edition of Filo has closed in a very positive atmosphere. The increase of exhibitors – more than 90 at this edition – went hand in hand with buyers’ flow, higher than expected. Therefore, the results confirmed the interest for a fair proposing yarns’ excellence based on a B2B model and endorsing concreteness, professionalism and efficiency”. Mr. Monfermoso added “In response to needs expressed both by exhibiting and visiting companies, in this edition we opened the doors to a selected group of dyeing mills and service firms for textile industry. We did it in accordance to the concept of supply chain, in order to offer to the professionals a wider vision of the production chain. The same goal we pursue through the strengthening of synergy between Filo and Milano Unica starting from the next edition”. “As to internationalisation of Filo – Mr Monfermoso concluded – the cooperation with ITA-Agency continues with satisfaction of all.
