The 50th edition of Filo, the international yarns and fibres exhibition, closed in a very positive atmosphere.
Paolo Monfermoso, manager of Filo, commented the results of the two days of exhibition: “The 50th edition of Filo closed with very good results. With the edition of 50 times and 25 years of Filo we reached 115 exhibitors and visitors’ number was in line with the edition of September 2017. We can therefore say that we have reached and exceeded the goals set for the three years period 2015-2018. The whole situation rewards the teamwork and synergies we have built over past years, first of all with ITA-Agency, Sistema Moda Italia and Milano Unica. Thanks to ITA-Agency, for this edition too, a foreign delegation made up of buyers coming from EU countries (France, Sweden, Denmark, Spain and Portugal) and also from Great Britain, Norway, Belarus, Turkey and Japan. While the support of Smi and Rafi (Russian Association of Fashion Industry) enabled us to host a delegation from Russia. On the basis of these results, Filo is now looking to the future: we have the responsibility of designing, for the next few years, a path of growth that will face new challenges of the industry, without giving up to Filo’s essential characteristics, first of all the quality of exhibited products.”
